The California Tax Board (FTB) began sending the first batch of a new round of stimulus check payments on August 27 to more than 600,000 beneficiaries.
During the next few weeks the agency will send new batches every two weeks to about 9 million Californians who filed a tax return in 2020.
Most of the $ 600 payments from the second California state stimulus check have been deposited into taxpayers’ bank accounts as of Wednesday, September 1.
This time taxpayers will be able to see a payment of between $ 500 and $ 1,100 depending on your income and if you have a financial dependent.
It is calculated that about two out of every three California families will receive a stimulus check.
We’re providing immediate relief to Californian families with the Golden State Stimulus:
🔸Nearly 2/3 of Californians will qualify for a stimulus check of $ 600
🔸Qualified families with kids will receive an additional $ 500
