The majority of Californians should expect to receive hundreds of dollars in inflation relief checks next month.

The state will begin to distribute funds to taxpayers through direct deposit starting on October 7th based on information provided for state taxes. Those who did not electronically file or receive refunds through direct deposit will instead receive debit cards that will be mailed from mid-October through December.

Earlier this year, the state Legislature and Governor Newsom agreed to a $12 billion relief effort that included sending taxpayers making less than $500,000 a year payments between $200 and $1,050, depending on income and family size, to offset the rising housing and gas prices.

Roughly 23 million California residents are eligible, which is set up in three tiers based on the adjusted gross income on 2020 state tax returns. Residents also must have filed their 2020 tax refund by Oct. 15, 2021, have lived in the state of California for at least half of the 2020 tax year and still be California residents on the date the payment is issued. They also cannot have been claimed as a dependent by someone else in the 2020 tax year. 

Here's how it breaksdown:

  • Single taxpayers who earned less than $75,000 and couples who filed jointly and made less than $150,000 will receive $350 per taxpayer and another $350 if they have any dependents.

  • Individual filers who made between $75,000 and $125,000 -- and couples who earned between $150,000 and $250,000 -- will receive $250 per taxpayer, plus another $250 for dependents.

  • Individual filers who earned between $125,000 and $250,000 and couples who earned between $250,000 and $500,000 would receive $200 each. A family with children in this bracket could receive a maximum of $600.

  • Single taxpayers who earned more than $250,000 and couples who made more than $500,000 combined in 2020 aren't eligible.

9:12 - sadly, 125K for a married couple isn't that much. Now, if you mean for an individual (or 250K for married couple) yeah, they don't need the relief. Save it for those who truly need the help.

SAC, I'm referring to the individual income thresholds. They should cut it off lower and redistribute the money to lower income folks. I was at Taco Bell today and the woman in front of me was asking how much each thing in her order was, because she couldn't afford her regular order anymore. The lower classes hurt SO much more from what is going on. 200 would mean much more to those people.

5009 :
2 years ago inflation was 1.4 % and started climbing Feb 2021 .
As the saying goes : elections have consequences !
Californians are so happy about their choices.
You should have reminded the Taco Bell client about that !

FOND, I would never in a million years vote for the Republicans of today. Their me-me-me are disgusting, their track record on human rights is disgusting, their handouts to CEOs and bankers are disgusting, their tax breaks to the rich are disgusting. And by serving me-me-me, I mean rich white males only. Anyone else who supports this party has been fleeced and is being taken advantage of.

WOW SAC --- I completely missed that one. I misread "inflation" as "immigration." My bad, fire away on that one folks, I blew it.

See? A real adult can admit when they absolutely miss the mark here. Try it sometime CMaR/VOICE. You'll feel better about all the lies, I promise!

"Who you gonna trust? I'm giving away free money!"
The Joker must run this program for the California crime wing of Pelosi/Newsome for the East coast mafia.
The perfect position for Pelosi is the U.S Ambassadorship of Italy at our expense.
Sorry if this is not obvious to some.

As noted recently Chico, and you denied, you consistently take far right positions. Of course that's up to you, but far right positions are stupid, ignorant, dishonest, sociopathic, and favor corporations and the uber rich over working class Americans.

"As the saying goes : elections have consequences !"

As logic goes, this is a post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy. It's also a cherry picking fallacy--no right winger ever blames Trump or other Republicans for the bad things that happen during their administrations, or credits Democrats for the good things that happen during their administrations ... but historians can tell you which are better for the economy and the people. (Trump made a huge deal of how the Dow went over 25,000 while he was President -- three times! Never took any responsibility for it dropping below 25,000 on his watch. Now it's over 30,000 under Biden. Crickets.)

Too much demand seeking a low supply. Dem response…. LETS ADD TO THE DEMAND. This coupled with student loan forgiveness and one might begin to think politicians are trying to buy votes….

CONSERVATIVE - Exactly. I believe democrats are giving away money specifically in an attempt to buy votes. It's the same reason Biden allows people into the US illegally. Biden and the democrats are expecting these people will vote for their party.

Both sides of the aisle pressured state legislators to DO SOMETHING during this inflation. They did something, but now it's the wrong something? What would have been the right move then? Repealing the gas tax was proven to not do anything, lowering prices by mere cents. So what's the bigger and better idea that your party proposed?

DOULIE - At least Biden isn't making it tenfolds harder to deport these immigrants by flying them and busing them thousands of miles away from the border out of pure childish spite. Keep whining about illegals being here while you clap and cheer for Abbot and De Santis using their taxpayers' $$$ to lie to trick vulnerable families onto planes and buses.

Doulie: California doesn't need to buy votes, and cash assistance programs are becoming more common, even in red states that traditionally give poor people a kick in the pants in lieu of an adequate safety net. The Biden immigration pearl-clutching is particularly hilarious, as if he's sitting in the Oval Office "letting people in" instead of continuing deportations and the same broken immigration policies that make skilled workers or refugees wait over 5 years for naturalization. Latino voters are far from a given for Dems. About half end up self-identifying as white in the census and Latinos tend to be more religious and socially conservative than the average, especially the older generation. But the GOP insists on calling them "aliens" instead of recognizing their similarities, all while denying a path to the American dream that was gifted to all of our ancestors, some after little more than a day at Ellis Island.

Sacjon- incorrect. How do you think they got to Florida? They certainly didn't walk or swim, Biden flew them. How do you think they got to the US? They were lied and tricked into believing there'd be jobs and housing for them so how is Abbot/DeSaintis any different than Biden? I think its great the liberal "sanctuary states/cities" that are pushing for open boarders get a taste of what their policies are causing small border towns who also don't have the infrastructure/capabilities to handle the influx - an influx many times large than a few planes worth of people. Seems Marthas Vineyard would be a much nicer place with more resources for a new immigrant than some podunk boarder town. FYI, within 24 hours those Martha Vineyards immigrants were shipped out of town. Liberal elite hypocrisy / NIMBYism at it again.

"Biden flew them. " - Absolutely false and deliberate LIE. Do you even bother to check facts before lying about them?

"The migrants appear to have never reached Florida. While the DeSantis administration has declined to answer detailed questions on the relocation operation, some of the migrants who arrived in Massachusetts have told media outlets about being approached in San Antonio and given promises of help. One migrant told the Boston Globe that a woman took him and others to a Texas hotel where she gave them meals and offered to help with paperwork. They were then put on a plane. NPR quoted migrants who said they were told they were going to Boston." ---- https://www.politico.com/newsletters/florida-playbook/2022/09/16/questions-confusion-and-fallout-follows-desantis-migrant-transport-00057159

"Flight tracking data shows a flight originated in San Antonio, stopped in Crestview, Florida, and Charlotte, North Carolina, before landing in Martha’s Vineyard." ---- https://apnews.com/article/florida-immigration-ron-desantis-charlie-baker-4fe96d293de4b189299a372b85c95add

Sacjon :
Too funny ! Inform yourself .
Biden flew dozens of flight SECRETLY , in the middle of the night, to various "small", "discreet" airport in the East in the past 10 months.
Paski confirmed at that time by saying : "it's not in the middle of the night, it's "early in the morning" !!! "
I don't remember you being outraged by that back then ! Double standards and hypocrisy by any chance ?

FOND - oh you're too cute. You still can't figure out why you and VOICE and CONSERVATIVESB are so wrong.....

Let me help you guys, again.

VOICE said: "How do you think they got to Florida? They certainly didn't walk or swim, Biden flew them."

Reality and facts said: "That is wrong."

Now, your turn: Show me where Biden flew these immigrants to Florida, supposedly where and only where De Santis then tricked them into flying to "Boston" or "NYC" as they reported?

Facts and the words people use are important. Keep trying, you'll figure it out soon!

sacjon Sep 16, 2022 02:03 PM
Californians to Receive Inflation Relief Checks Next Month

FONDSB - "I don't remember you being outraged by that back then !" Wanna know why? Because it is ENTIRELY different. Biden flew those kids and teens last year to help them. De Santis tricked and flew those families out of spite for democrats.

One's motive was humanitarian, the other's (guess who) was childish, un-human, evil.

sacjon Sep 16, 2022 02:18 PM

FOND, CMaR of LIES, CONSERVSB - Here are some more facts for you:

"Experts said the vast majority of people trying to cross the southern border into the United States are summarily turned back. Exceptions are made for unaccompanied minors, some of whom are transported by planes to be with relatives or approved sponsors — a practice also done during the Trump administration." ---- https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2022/mar/16/tyler-kistner/claims-biden-secretly-flying-immigrants-us-cities-/

You guys really need to stop getting your news from political ads.

SAC you made the point that DeSantis was making it more difficult to deport them by flying them deeper into the country but refuse to accept Biden has been doing this with THOUSANDS for nearly 2 years.

ConservativeSB Sep 16, 2022 02:35 PM

SAC we don’t need to get our news from political ads. There is plenty of video footage of the southern border to know this is a huge issue. We’ve seen the caravans, we’ve seen the fentanyl. What is the difference between a sanctuary city and an approved sponsor? Based on the response from Martha’s Vineyard, the only difference is the approved sponsors don’t throw a fit when the immigrants show up.

MarcelK Sep 17, 2022 12:35 AM

"Based on the response from Martha’s Vineyard, the only difference is the approved sponsors don’t throw a fit when the immigrants show up."

The immigrants--who are asylum seekers who are in the country legally--were welcomed and cared for by the off season low income workers on MV. The criticism is about Ron DeathSantis lying to these people, spending $12 million in tax money to traffick them, and using them as political pawns.

"SAC do you agree that in the past 12 months the Biden admin has flown immigrants to Florida? "

Every administration is required by law to relocate youths in their care to permanent facilities after 72 hours. They aren't dumping them on church doorsteps. I've seen thousands of right wingers use this same ridiculous whataboutism talking point while having no idea what they are talking about.

MarcelK Sep 17, 2022 12:39 AM

Here's the thing, ConservativeSB, VO, FondOfSB, Doulie, et. al. ... no matter how many times you repeat your talking points, decent people will not cease viewing right wingers--accurately--as racist lying sociopaths.

SAC - Wrong again. DeSantis flew those people to high profile areas to spread the "grief" suffered by Americans living in border cities. Tricked? Do you think these people really care where they are dropped off as long as they are in the US & all the freebies? Tricked would be sending them to Guantanamo.

"Do you think these people really care where they are dropped off as long as they are in the US & all the freebies?"

I realize that this is beyond the comprehension of racist right wing garbage, but these people are asylum seekers, fleeing from violence caused by U.S. policy.

CONSERVATIVE - I never said there wasn't aborder crisis, I said VOICE was WRONG about saying that "Biden flew" the immigrants to Florida where De Santis then flew them to Martha's Vineyard. THAT IS FALSE and that is all I was talking about. But by all means, keep making up things that I never said.

SAC - C'mon man. Biden is responsible for all these people illegally entering the US. And you think Biden is going to "deport" any one of these people? I don't whine about anyone, especially illegals. Fact is, they do not belong in the US. I make a statement of fact. I doubt they give a squat about the US for anything other than what the freebies Biden gives them. What of the "vulnerable [American] families," our veterans? Why are over 20,000 (active) military families now in need of SNAP to subsist? Until an attempt is made to care better for Americans and especially veterans, I don't give a squat about what you refer to are (illegal) "vulnerable families."

@Doulie - America is a nation of immigrants. To refuse asylum to those who are legally protected under our U.S. Constitution is as anti-American as burning a flag, or following a politician who acts as a King, or violently breaking into Congress because you don't like who won the free and fair election.

doulie Sep 19, 2022 03:04 PM

Marcelk - "racist right wing garbage?" Me? I'm hurt - that you can't come up with a more original derogatory comment. When it comes to the bottom line, as I've stated before, until a solid attempt is made to enhance the lives of needy Americans, especially veterans, I don't concern myself with "asylum seekers." How many of these people do you believe should be allowed to illegally the enter the US? There has to be a cut-off point at some time in the future. What's the number before the US really begins a nose dive being unable to care for Americans and those seeking asylum? If Biden truly cared about these people he would hire 87,000 ICE personnel to expedite their asylum applications, not tax agents. But, I'll guess Biden will consider closing the border November 6, 2024 as he begins to pack his bags.

sacjon Sep 19, 2022 03:05 PM

DOULIE - "Biden is responsible for all these people illegally entering the US." - All what people? Did nobody cross the border while Trump or Bush were in the hot seat?

"And you think Biden is going to "deport" any one of these people?" - Yup. He has. Facts and such.

"I don't whine about anyone, especially illegals." - You literally are whining about illegals right now.
