Get financial relief from your state: several US states offering assistance to COVID-affected residents

Several states in the US are offering relief in the form of tax rebates and one-time inflation relief checks to help residents who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, based on the report released by The US Sun on December 25, 2022.

Chicago is offering $500 checks to residents through the Chicago Resiliency Fund 2.0 program if they had trouble accessing federal stimulus payments. To be eligible, residents must apply online, make less than 300% of the federal poverty level, be 18 or older, and have claimed a dependent age 17 or older on their 2019 tax return. The application period is from October 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022.

Idaho is offering two rebates: $300 for individual filers and $600 for joint filers, or 10% of 2020 income taxes, whichever is greater; and $75 per taxpayer and each dependent, or 12% of the tax amount reported on Form 40 or Form 43, whichever is greater. To qualify, taxpayers must file the required tax returns by December 31, 2022, be full-year residents in 2020 and 2021, and not be nonresidents or part-year residents. Rebates will be issued in the order that Idaho receives its 2021 income tax returns.

Pennsylvania is offering a tax rebate program for older and disabled residents, with a maximum standard rebate of $650 and supplemental rebates of up to $975. Residents can apply for the program until January 1, even though the first direct deposits were issued on July 1. Beneficiaries of the program must be 65 years of age or older, widows or widowers age 50 or older, or disabled and 18 years of age or older.

Hawaii is offering a one-time tax refund of $300 to residents. The checks were sent during the last week of August but will be issued throughout the year.

West Virginia is providing housing-related funding to homeowners who are experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic and are at risk of losing their home.

Data and information for each state were first reported by Aurielle Weiss of The US Sun on December 25, 2022.
