New Stimulus Checks and New Homeowner Tax Rebates
If you are on SSDI or SSI, you may be wondering about the new size of your stimulus check. The IRS will be able to calculate the size of your new check based on the information you provide. For those who receive these benefits, the new law extends the definition of a dependent from just one to any number of dependents. In the past, only dependents 17 and older were counted toward stimulus payments.
New York’s new stimulus check
New York’s Governor has announced that residents of the state can expect to receive a stimulus check of up to $270, a program which aims to combat inflation and improve affordability. The government hopes to reach about 1.75 million households with the check, which will be mailed out by the end of October.
The government has authorized three rounds of Economic Impact Payments, or stimulus checks, through the IRS. The first two payments were mailed to residents who met specific criteria; the third payment will not require additional actions. The message is also likely to differ from the previous two payments.
Maine’s new homeowner tax rebate credit
The Maine New Homeowner Tax Rebate Credit program helps people who cannot afford property taxes by deferring them for a year.

Vermont’s new homeowner tax rebate credit
If you’ve been paying property taxes in Vermont, you might be eligible for a new homeowner tax rebate credit. Governor Phil Scott recently signed a bill reducing property taxes by 14 cents for every $100 in assessed value. This will bring the average property tax bill in Vermont down from 2.7% to 2.3%. This measure is part of a larger tax bill that will divide a $90 million surplus in the state’s education fund among citizens.
The Property Tax Rebate Credit program is administered by the Vermont Department of Taxes. Homeowners may be eligible for a refund on their property taxes if they live in an eligible homestead property. For more information, visit the Property Tax Rebate Credit website.
