Did you know the New York State budget for 2022-2023 allocates funds for one-time payments to qualifying taxpayers? The Empire State child credit is the name for this benefit.
If you make less than $75,000 as a single filer, $110,000 as a joint filer, or $55,000 as a married filer with no children, you are guaranteed at least $100 per qualified child.
Further Credit is Available to Certain Persons as Well.
Furthermore, New York state is returning tax credits for which the taxpayer was eligible. The Earned Income Tax Credit is used to make this payment (or noncustodial parent earned income credit).
If you live in New York, you may be eligible for a credit equal to 30% of your federal earned income. When you think about it, how significant is that? However, the best place to learn more is the official New York state website, which is provided below.
How to Receive These Funds and What You Need to Accomplish
The great news is that you don’t need to do anything at all. In this case, the state will transmit the money to you without your involvement.
You may get more information about why you may not have received a check if you believe you are entitled to one on this page of the official New York State website.
In the same vein, be wary of any tax-related scams. Never respond to an unsolicited email or phone call by giving out personal information like your Social Security number. First, verify the contact with the company by phone if the email or call purports to be from a business with which you do business.
Scammers may also exploit tax debt as a means to coerce you into giving them access to your personal or financial information.
