Update on Stimulus Check 4: Oregon to Send $600

As early as the first week of July, the state of Oregon plans to send $600 one-time stimulus checks to more than 200,000 households.

On Wednesday, the Oregon Department of Revenue said that it would start delivering checks or direct deposits totalling $600 to over 236,000 households this week. By July 1, the funds should reach eligible households.

A household member must have claimed the Oregon Earned Income Tax Credit on their 2020 tax return to be eligible for the stimulus check instalments. Additionally, according to Oregon Live, the household should have resided in Oregon for at least the second half of 2020.

State and federal income taxes won’t apply to the $600 instalments.

Following Other Ones, the Oregon Stimulus Check

The stimulus cheques that Oregon is receiving come as other states across the country work to ease the financial strains on American families by implementing more relief payments.

Individual taxpayers in Colorado can expect to receive at least $500 in relief payments by the end of September, while married couples filing jointly are eligible for up to $1,000.

The checks are a component of law that Governor Jared Polis signed last week to assist Colorado families in paying for basic essentials despite growing costs and inflation.


President Joe Biden’s native state of Delaware likewise sent $300 payments to households to assist them to deal with inflation. People who filed their 2020 income tax returns received the first round of payments at the end of May.

Additionally, at least 175,000 residents, including low-income seniors, Social Security recipients, and inmates, who haven’t submitted their taxes would receive cheques from the state government.

More than 660,000 frontline employees in Minnesota will get rewards of $750 for continuing to work despite the COVID-19 outbreak.

The checks will be sent to people who have worked 120 hours or more between March 15, 2020, and June 30, 2021, but who have not received unemployment benefits for more than five months.

If they made $175,000 or less annually, workers who assisted COVID-19 patients are also eligible for a payout. The payments will not be given to those who earned more than $85,000 annually but did not directly assist COVID-19 patients.

Delaware, the home state of Vice President Joe Biden, also made $300 incentives to households to help them cope with inflation. The initial set of payouts was out at the end of May to those who submitted their 2020 tax forms.

Additionally, the state would issue checks to at least 175,000 citizens who haven’t filed their taxes, including low-income elderly, Social Security recipients, and prisoners.

The initial payment round for those who submitted their 2020 tax returns was made at the end of May.
