The severe impact of inflation on the wallets of the American population has prompted nearly half of the state governments to implement tax refund policies and tax credits to make the end of the year a little less complicated, based on the fact that their spending is higher than they are. grow during the holiday season.

At least 20 states have earmarked funds for the population as part of budget surpluses that come mostly from funds the federal government has given to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.

While in some institutions the benefit has already been granted, in others it is considered to do so no later than the first days of the next year, since by the last month the increase in prices compared to the previous year was already 7.7%. % and 0.4%. until September.

Residents with children had the opportunity to apply for a “Child Tax Refund” in the amount of $250 for each child. This benefit could be extended to three children, which meant up to $750 for some taxpayers who had already distributed.


Earlier this year, the state government set aside a one-time payment of $300 for taxpayers.


Checks of up to $450 per child were sent to low-income families.


Taxpayers who have filed their 2020 and 2021 tax returns will be eligible for refunds.

In this sense, a $250 benefit would be given to single residents, $375 to the head of household and $500 to married couples.


Residents earning less than $100,000 were awarded $300 in 2021 and those earning more than $100,000 received a one-time payment of $100.


$75, or 12% of their 2020 state income tax liability, was provided to each taxpayer and dependent.


People who made less than $200,000 in 2021 would get a $50 tax refund. Meanwhile, couples earning less than $400,000 jointly in 2021 will receive a lump sum payment of $100.


Residents were given an initial payment of $125 dollars and subsequent payments of $200 dollars.


Taxpayers filing 2021 state tax returns were given a one-time payment of $850 and those representing them as a couple, the amount was $1,700.


All residents who pay 2021 Massachusetts personal income tax and file their 2021 tax return by October 15, 2023, will receive a refund of the incentive tax.
