California Middle Class Tax Refund: Here’s who qualifies for inflation relief payments

Later this year, California is preparing to distribute another wave of direct payments to millions of state citizens.

According to state officials, up to 23 million people will be eligible for tax refunds of up to $1,050, but not everyone will receive a check.

To be eligible for the new Middle Class Tax Refund (a component of the state budget's "inflation relief package," according to state lawmakers).

Nexstar is informed by the California Tax Franchise Board that you must adhere to the following standards.

You must be a resident of the state at the time the payments are made to be eligible for the tax refund.

Additionally, you must have spent at least six months of the 2020 tax year as a resident of California.

The payouts are tier-based on income, with lower-earners being eligible for a bigger sum.

Couples making up to $500,000 and single filers making up to $250,000 are both eligible for at least a partial refund.
