Last week we learned that lawmakers are struggling to reach agreements on stimulus checks. For example, the governor of Massachusetts planned to send out a $250 tax rebate check, but it collapsed. However, locals are still supposedly going to be receiving some form of a payout.

Massachusetts is just one of the many states that are trying to offer their residents some form of tax breaks; there's also Florida which is gearing up to give out $450 inflation relief payments for those who qualify and also, and California is planning on offering up to $1,050 to their residents.

As of right now, there are approximately 18 states that have sent out checks or are in the process of sending them out. Here are a few of them:

California is planning on distributing in the form of direct deposits or debit cards. Couples who file jointly who also make less than $150,000 annually and single taxpayers making less than $75,000 annually will each be receiving $350, and an additional $350 if they have any dependents. So, a married couple with kids could get as much as $1,050.

Virginia is sending out one-time checks this fall, individual filers will be receiving $250 while married couples will receive $500, and this will be in the form of direct deposit or mailed checks.

Colorado residents will receive a check of $750 by September 30, and joint filers will receive $1,500.

Residents in South Carolina will be receiving up to $800. 44% of South Carolina residents did not pay income taxes, so they won't be getting a check.

Delaware residents will be receiving a $300 stimulus check, and those who filed their tax returns in 2020 will be receiving the payments.
