Some residents are awaiting instructions on how they can get the relief rebate check.
In May, Delaware started sending “relief rebate” payments of $300 to taxpayers who filed their 2020 state tax returns. The one-time payment is due to a budget surplus. Throughout the Summer, payments were sent to adult residents who filed their 2021 tax returns and to other individuals, age 18 and older identified via other State agency data.
The 2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program was created by House Bill 360. This legislation created a “relief rebate,” which is a one-time direct payment of $300 per adult Delaware resident. This relief is intended to help Delawareans facing higher prices at the grocery store and gas pump.
