Well it looks as though Alabamians will have to wait a few more months to receive their special tax rebate payment.
State lawmakers passed that rebate plan in May – after several revisions. The final plan calls for $150 rebates for single people and $300 for married couples.
Around 1.9 million people in the state are expected to qualify for the one-time payments. The plan will cost the state some $393 million that comes from a $2.8 billion surplus in the Education Trust Fund.
The Alabama Department of Revenue will start issuing checks – on November 30th – and for all those who use direct deposit for their tax refunds, the rebates will go to their checking account. If there’s no address on file, the refund will be issued via check.
To qualify you must have filed a state income tax return for the year 2021 on or before October 17th of 2022. People who don’t file a return, or who are considered as a dependent for another taxpayer in 2021, aren’t eligible. The payments are exempt from state taxes.
