Even though the federal government no longer sends out stimulus checks, several states continue to make such payments to low-income residents. Delaware is one such state, with a one-time $300 check being distributed this May.
The 2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program was approved by the legislature on April 14 and signed into law by Governor John Carney.
The plan is to send a one-time $300 check to anyone who filed a 2020 tax return in the state, with the money expected to arrive in mailboxes by the end of this month.
“This relief is intended to assist Delawareans facing higher grocery and gas prices,” the government said in a statement.
“The State of Delaware is working hard to provide qualifying taxpayers with $300 one-time rebate checks by the end of May 2022.”
In Delaware, who is eligible for the $300 stimulus check?
The check is available to all Delaware residents who paid state taxes in 2020 and continue to reside in the state.
It isn’t just for low- and middle-income families, as the amount is the same for everyone.
In Delaware, how do you apply for the $300 stimulus check?
“This payment will be made to each taxpayer, including those who filed jointly, and taxpayers do not need to take any additional action to receive the $300 check,” the government stated.
If you believe you should have received a check but haven’t received one by the middle or end of June, contact the Delaware Department of Finance by email at dor firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 302-577-8200.
