The U.S. Postal Service did not deliver mail on Monday due to the holiday schedule. This is because Christmas falls on a Sunday, and the Postal Service gave its employees the day off to observe the holiday.
According to the holiday calendar for the U.S. Postal Service, local post offices and couriers were also closed on Monday, but will resume operations today, December 27. Tax rebates are not issued on federal holidays.
As stated in an article published by The U.S. Sun on December 26, 2022, several states are currently sending tax rebates, which could be affected by postal service changes. For example, California taxpayers are receiving the Middle-Class Tax Refund, which ranges from $200 to $1,050 and will be sent through the new year. In South Carolina, eligible residents are eligible for rebates of up to $800, while Virginia residents are receiving direct payments of up to $500.
Illinois residents may be eligible for up to $700 in tax rebates, distributed since September. In Massachusetts, a state law has resulted in millions of residents receiving rebates worth a total of $2.9 billion. Massachusetts had net tax revenue of nearly $42 billion for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2022, with a cap on tax revenue set at $38.87 billion by state law.
The timing of when you receive your tax rebate may depend on the payment method you selected on your tax return. Direct payments may arrive in your bank account within a few days, while paper checks may take up to three weeks.
Some states offer tracking tools for residents to follow the status of their rebate. For example, Delaware has an online tool that can be accessed with your Social Security number. It’s also important to note that mail will not be delivered on Monday, January 2nd due to New Year’s Day being observed on a Sunday.
