California And Colorado Still Sending Out State Stimulus Payments in 2023

Dayana Sabatin

Despite it being a new year, there are still many states that are still issuing tax refunds and stimulus checks that were announced in 2022.

Massachusetts only started returning $3 billion in surplus tax revenue to residents in November. Additionally, California officials aren't expecting to finish issuing the state's "middle-class tax refunds" until the end of January.

New Jersey homeowners haven't received any of their payments from the state's $2 billion property tax relief program, so they won't be going out until at least this spring.

What this means is that your state could still be sending out checks. Make sure to see if you qualify and how much you're owed.


There are millions of Californians that have been receiving inflation relief checks that are up to $1,050 as a direct deposit or with a debit card. The state expected 95% of the payments to go out in 2022, but the remaining checks should be arriving by Jan. 15, 2023.

The amounts that California residents will receive is still based on their income, tax-filing status as well as household size.

  • Single taxpayers that are earning less than $75,000 a year and couples filing jointly and making less than $150,000 a year will be eligible to receive $350 per taxpayer, as well as another $350 if they have any dependents. Married couples with children could receive $1,050.
  • Individual filers making between $75,000 and $125,000 a year -- and couples earning between $150,000 and $250,000 will be receiving $250 per taxpayer and another $250 if they have any dependents. A family with kids would receive a total of $750.

Single taxpayers earning anything at or above $250,000 and couples earning a combined $500,000 are not eligible for payments.


In Colorado, state residents that have filed their 2021 return by June. 30 should have gotten a physical check for $750 by Sept. 30.

However, filers who received an extension and filed by the Oct. 17 deadline will receive their refund by Jan. 31, 2023.
