DEADLINES for payments are approaching and households may need to act quickly.
Currently, two states and one settlement program offer direct payments ranging from $25 to $1,500.
Some groups of Americans have until this month to take action, while others have until the end of next month.
Here’s a list of programs across the country that are offering money – but there are only days left to claim some of them.
1. BILLING PERIOD FROM AMERICAN AIRLINES – UP TO $200
American Airlines customers can each receive up to $200 from a $7.5 million pot.
This comes after a settlement after the major airline allegedly overcharged customers for their luggage.
“American broke its contract with the comparison group members by requiring them to check one or more of their bags despite promises that they could do so free of charge,” the settlement details read.
This allegedly happened between February 23, 2017 and April 9, 2022.
If you were affected, you must submit an application by February 22 at the latest.
If approved, refunds range from $25 to $200 for each checked bag.
2. TERM OF THE COLORADO PTC PROGRAM – UP TO $1,044
Colorado residents will need to take action in the coming weeks if they want to receive their property tax, rent and heat credit (PTC) rebate in April.
It could be worth up to $1,044 for individuals — but it will be capped at $1,000 for those filing applications in 2023.
To qualify, you must have resided in Colorado from January 1 through December 31, 2022.
Total income must not exceed $16,925 for single individuals and $22,858 for married individuals filing jointly.
In addition, you must meet one of the following criteria:
- Age 65 or older
- Surviving spouse who is 58 years of age or older
- Disabled people of all ages who, for medical reasons, were unable to engage in significant gainful employment
- Paid property tax, rent or heating costs in 2022
- Not claimed as dependent on another person’s federal income tax return
For example, eligible Coloradoans whose applications are processed by March 10th will receive their direct deposits by April 5th.
For those who have opted for paper checks, April 15th is the day you start receiving your cash.
In other words, the quickest way to get your discount is to apply as soon as possible and choose direct deposit as your payment method.
Applications can be submitted online through the Colorado Department of Revenue.
And the status can be checked online with an account through the DOR.
3. NEW JERSEY ANCHORING – $1,500
While New Jersey has repeatedly extended its deadline for its Affordable NJ Communities for Homeowners & Renters (ANCHOR) program, it looks like February 28 is now the final day for it.
As per the scheme, tenants are now eligible for cash, which was not the case in the past.
The following groups of residents are entitled to a certain amount of money, according to the state Treasury Department.
- Homeowners earning up to $150,000: $1,500
- Homeowners earning between $150,000 and $250,000: $1,000
- Renters earning up to $150,000: $450
To have your name considered for money, applications must be submitted by February 28.
Here are the 12 states that are offering up to $1,000 worth of payments to parents.
