An announcement from the office of Rhode Island Gov. Dan McKee said the state started issuing the payments on Oct. 3, 2022. They will be disbursed to qualified tax filers over the next several weeks. The rebates are part of the fiscal year 2023 budget signed by McKee and approved by the General Assembly.

The rebates are available to Rhode Island residents making up to $100,000 a year for individual filers and $200,000 for joint filers. Payments will be sent to nearly 115,000 Rhode Island families.

“The Child Tax Rebate Program allows us to distribute over $40 million in direct support specifically to middle and lower-income families with children,” McKee said in a statement. “We know costs are rising nationwide, and that’s why Rhode Island is continuing to step up and provide relief on utility prices, small business taxes and everyday costs.”
