The California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) announced that residents who are eligible for a middle class tax refund will start receiving their checks this week.

New York checks will arrive this month
According to Governor Kathy Hochul, 1.75 million people will receive the payment and most should receive the check by October 31, 2022. But who is eligible for this money?
Checks will be sent to those who received the Empire State Child Credit and/or the Earned Income Credit in 2021. “This program will put money back in the pockets of nearly two million New York families struggling to fulfill their duties to end of the month in the face of the pandemic, inflation and other rising costs,” said the governor.
