In 2022, inflation in the United States reached its highest level in the last 40 years and amounted to 8.2 %. Many US residents were in a crisis, so the authorities decided to send stimulus checks to citizens to help people cope with high prices.

Stimulus checks are sent to US taxpayers to stimulate the economy. This process is triggered by the fact that residents increase consumption through spending and thus increase the income of retailers.

The stimulus checks are part of a larger federal stimulus package that is meant to support the economy, like in 2020 with the CARES Act and 2021 with the American Rescue Plan.

Between March 2020 and March 2021, the US government sent Americans three rounds of stimulus payments to ease the economic hardship caused by COVID-19.

Stimulus checks have been sent to US taxpayers several times.

These checks vary in amount depending on the status of the taxpayer. Joint taxpayers usually receive twice as much as those who file an individual return. In some cases, those wit­h unpaid taxes saw their stimulus checks automatically applied to their outstanding balance.

Payments will be distributed in the same way as other anti-crisis payments. That is, first the money will go to direct deposit accounts, and only then - in the form of paper checks.

The Tax Franchise Board website has a tool that can be used to determine the amount due. Most Californians don't have to do anything (apply or file any paperwork) to get paid, the payment is automatically credited.

If not, then your check will be received before March 2023.


Under the plan, $50 will be sent to people making less than $200,000 a year and $100 to couples applicants filing jointly and making less than $200,000.
