California residents will soon receive their relief payments for gas prices

  • Beginning in October and running through January 2023, eligible Californians will receive their payments either through direct deposits into bank accounts or through their debit cards; the amounts will be up to $1,050 dollars

It could be sooner than expected when eligible California residents begin receiving payments under the state’s gas price relief program.

The tax refund, totaling $9.5 billion, will provide one-time payments to qualifying residents in amounts up to $1,050.

Gov. Gavin Newsom and California lawmakers reached an agreement on the rebates in June, when gas prices were breaking records, reaching $7 a gallon.

To qualify for the rebate program, residents must have filed their 2020 tax return by last October, lived in California for six months or more in 2020, and have income of less than $150,000 per year.

Residents eligible for the rebate program should receive their corresponding payments from October to January 2023, either by direct deposit into their bank account or through their debit card.
