Stimulus Checks Are Coming your Way in Maine

Jake Wells

If you're struggling financially right now, know that some money is likely coming your way if you meet the requirements set by the state of Maine.

As a way of helping residents, Governor Mills has proposed giving back more than half the budget surplus of 729.3 million to the taxpayers of Maine checks in the amount of $850.

Hopefully, this payment from the state can give you some relief in this time of rising prices.

So, who is eligible for these stimulus checks?

The checks will be sent to Individuals that file a 2021 Maine individual income tax return by October 31, 2022 as a full-time Maine resident. So if you haven't filed yet, be sure to click the link below at the end of the post to file your taxes.

These individuals who filed a Maine tax return must not be claimed as a dependent (so checks won't go to children). The individuals also must make have a Federal adjusted gross income of less than $100,000 if filing single or if married and filing separately, $150,000 if filing as head of household or $200,000 for couples filing jointly.
