In the United States, state governments are still giving relief payments in the form of tax refunds. In this sense, they are also renewing opportunities for eligible residents who have been left out to receive their money.
One of these states is Alaska, where the deadline to apply for endowment fund dividends was March 31. However, right now, few people can request that payment.
Regarding eligibility requirements, the basic premise is to be or have been a resident of Alaska during calendar years 2022 and 2023. On the other hand, the 2022 Endowment Fund dividend amounts to $3284.00 USD.
According to the Permanent Fund Dividend Portal, there are some exceptions regarding the time limit. These include being disabled, or applying for a person who died during the application period.
There is also a time limit exception for military members who were receiving hostile fire or imminent danger pay during the application period.
In these cases, those applicants who applied online and opted for direct deposit will receive their payment on October 5, 2023. This would be for those who were determined eligible for the payment before September 22, 2023.
Meanwhile, applications that were determined eligible for payment before October 18 will receive their dividend on October 26, 2023.
Which other states are handing out stimulus checks and relief payments?
In Massachusetts, citizens who are eligible for a state tax refund of 14% of their 2021 tax liability can still receive their payment. Here they have to file their 2021 tax return before September 15, 2023.
In the case of Minnesota, people who were residents in the 2021 tax year and recently moved without receiving their payment also get the benefit. In that regard, Minnesota this week opened a secure online portal for residents to update their address or bank information.
Married couples filing jointly with an adjusted gross income of $150,000.00 USD or less are expected to be sent a payment of $520.00 USD.
In addition, $260.00 USD is available to all other individuals with an adjusted gross income of $75,000 USD or less. There is also an additional $260.00 USD for each dependent claimed on your return.
