Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a $308 billion state budget in June that will give 23 million Californians direct tax refunds to help them deal with inflation

The Middle Class Tax Refund (MCTR) is a one-time payment that will be sent to residents automatically from Oct. 7, 2022, to Jan. 15, 2023.

It anticipates that by the end of the year 2022, approximately 95% of all payments will have been made.

But not everyone will get the same payment because the amount depends on tax filing status and income.

A married couple with less than $100,000 in income would get $1,050, no matter how many children they have.

The provision of a tax refund to the millions of working Californians is the intended outcome of the stimulus package.

The state sales tax on diesel will also be put on hold, and there will be more money to help people pay their rent and utility bills.

"This budget invests in California's values while building up the state's budget reserves and including triggers for future state spending," says the joint statement.
