October is closing in on its first week, and some Americans will find themselves paying stimulus checks this month. There are four states to proceed with refund delivery throughout the month. Along the lines, find out where the deliveries will be made, the amount, and what you need to access the benefit that reaches up to US$2,500, depending on the jurisdiction.
The amount of the benefit varies according to each state and the number of members in each family. In Washington, for example, they give tax credits of up to US$1,200 per family, while in Minnesota, direct tax payments for the 2021 tax year are sent to eligible residents.
On the other hand, in New Mexico, they give aid even to non-taxpayers, and in Montana, assistance is provided based on the income of individuals. More details are below.
