MILLIONS of Americans are in line to receive direct payments worth up to $1,050 this month.
The Sun has revealed five important dates that Americans should note down so they know when payments will be sent and when to file taxes.
CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 7
Officials in California will be sending payments worth between $200 and $1,050 from October 7.
Single filers that earned less than $75,000 will get $350 per taxpayer and another $350 if they have dependents.
Meanwhile, couples can have a joint income of less than $150,000
Individual taxpayers that have an income of between $75,000 and $125,000 will get $250 plus another $250 if they have kids.
Couples will qualify for two $250 payments if they earn between $150,000 and $250,000.
And, single Californians who earned between $125,000 and $250,000 will pocket $200.
Couples that have an income of $250,000-$500,000 will receive two $200 payments.
And, if they have dependents, they will get an additional $200.
But, joint filers that earned more than $500,000 will not be eligible for the relief.
To qualify, Californians were required to file their 2020 tax return by October 15, 2021.
Governor Gavin Newsom revealed that the cash is being provided as part of a $12billion relief scheme.
Around 23million Californians are expected to receive a relief payment.
The first round of relief will be sent out from October 7, while the second batch of direct deposits will head to Californians from October 28.
The relief is also being uploaded onto debit cards and these will be mailed out from October 25.
ILLINOIS – OCTOBER 17
Taxpayers in Illinois must submit their tax returns by October 17 if they want to receive a rebate worth at least $700.
Single taxpayers with an income of less than $200,000 will get a $50 rebate.
Couples that earn less than $400,000 will pocket $100.
Those eligible with children will receive an additional $100 per dependent. This is capped at three kids.
And, single property owners that have paid their taxes and earn less than $250,000 may be able to receive up to $300.
Around six million Illinoisans are thought to be eligible for the support.
Officials have warned that it could take up to eight weeks for checks to arrive.
MAINE – OCTOBER 31
Americans in Maine have until October 31 to file their taxes so they can qualify for a relief payment worth $850.

Governor Janet Mills’ office said that checks will continue to go out on a rolling basis through the end of 2022.
To qualify for a rebate check, you must meet a few requirements.
As far as income goes, an individual must not exceed $100,000, while heads of the household and couples can make up to $150,000 and $200,000, respectively.
