Stimulus Checks: Is Your State Giving Out Cash This Fall?

Qualifying residents will receive up to $1,050 between late Oct. 2022 and mid-Jan. 2023.
Through the Colorado Cash Back Bill, eligible Colorado residents can get a tax rebate of $750 for individuals ($1,500 for joint filers). Taxpayers will receive the rebate between Sept. 30, 2022, and Jan. 31, 2023, depending on when they filed.
The Delaware Relief Rebate Program grants a one-time $300 payment to qualifying residents. Checks are going out this summer.
