Tax rebates of up to $650 are due to be paid to more than a million households starting next week.
After a paper shortage delayed the first round of rebate reviews, Indiana officials now say the money is on its way.
Those who haven’t yet received their $125 automatic tax refund should expect to see their checks in a few weeks.
A lack of paper on which to print the checks prevented them from coming out as planned.
Emily Boesen, a spokeswoman for the State Audit Office, said the checks could be issued as early as the week of August 15.
This includes not only the taxpayer refund, but also the $200 payment recently signed by Gov. Eric Holcomb.
The two payments are combined into one check.
However, the total amount of the check depends on how individuals filed their taxes.
Individual taxpayers will receive a $325 check, while married couples applying together will receive a $650 check.
Ms. Boesen added that about 1.7 million checks still need to be printed.
The chartered accountant’s office estimates that 50,000 checks are printed a day and that it will take 24 to 48 hours for them to arrive in the mail.
The state is aiming to have all checks printed and mailed by October 2022.
Officials are now asking Hoosiers not to contact the state until Nov. 1 about missing payments.
Other states are offering help
Many other states are offering relief to residents as inflation remains high.
