Most of the $ 600 payments from the second stimulus check from the state of California are scheduled to be distributed beginning this September 1.
On August 28, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the first round of checks would be sent starting this week. The California Tax Franchise Board (CTFB) confirmed that most stimulus payments through a bank deposit would be issued between September 1, 2021 and October 15, 2021.
Those taxpayers who received their tax refund through direct deposit will also see the check arrive in that same bank account.
In case of receiving the stimulus check through a paper check, the distribution time will depend on your zip code.
The CTFB has informed that if you have declared your taxes after the payment date foreseen in your zip code, you must wait up to 60 days to receive the payment.
What do I have to do to receive the stimulus check?
The only action you need to do is file a complete tax return for 2020 in order to get your aid payment. If you have submitted it, you will not have to do anything else.
