The Alabama Department of Revenue will begin payments this Friday via direct deposit or paper checks.
To be eligible for the rebate, a person must have filed their 2021 personal income tax return by October 17, 2022.
Residents of Alabama will soon be able to receive a one-time tax refund up to $300.
Alabama Department of Revenue is set to begin issuing payments by Friday, either via direct deposit or paper checks depending on the method residents used to receive their tax refunds for 2021. Al.com reported that payments will be sent out to 1.9 million residents.
Rebates are expected to cost the state $393 million. This comes from the $2.8 billion surplus of the Education Trust Fund.
For the $150 rebate for single filers and $300 rebate for married couples filing jointly, taxpayers must have submitted a 2021 individual tax form by Oct. 17, 2022. The payments are not phased out or based on income. However, some people will not be eligible for a rebate.
1. Whoever did not file an Individual Income Tax Return for 2021 by October 17, 2022.
2. Non-residents of the state are considered non-residents.
3. Accounts for estate or trusts
4. Who claimed a dependent for the tax year 2021.
Residents who are eligible but did not receive the 2021 refund will be mailed a paper check to their current address. The paper checks will be sent to anyone whose bank information is incorrect or has received a refund for 2021 using a tax preparation account.
Payments are not subject to state tax.
