Eligible individuals receive $850 in checks, while the average family receives $1,700.

To qualify, individuals must have an income of no more than $100,000.

However, heads of households and couples can have incomes of $150,000 and $200,000.

The discounts depend on your 2021 tax return, which must be submitted by October 31st.

In addition, it is important to note that you may not be claimed as a dependent on any other tax return.

According to the Department of Administrative Financial Affairs, there is no particular order in which payments are made.

Payments are transferred to bank accounts depending on when taxes were issued.

Almost 200,000 tax refunds are due to be paid out each week, so most payments will be made by June 30th.

Oregon’s stimulus

In March, Oregon lawmakers approved a one-time payment of $600 to eligible residents.

The checks are issued as part of the state’s $141.8 million one-time assistance plan and were expected to be distributed to over 236,000 taxpayers.

The payments will be made to low-income workers who have worked during the pandemic.

According to the DOR, beneficiaries had to qualify for an amended tax return for the Earned Income Tax Credit before the December 31, 2021 or April 15, 2021 deadline and claim it on their 2020 tax return.

To receive the checks, residents must have lived in Oregon for the past six months.

The DOR said the checks began being written last week and should be received by July 1.

It issues 136,640 direct deposit payments and 99,647 paper checks.
