Stimulus checks have been a great relief to many, many United States households in 2022. These checks were granted for a variety of reasons, such as pandemic, unemployment and more. The American Rescue Plan that Biden enacted helped these households greatly because of these stimulus checks.
However, this plan does not seem to increase or go beyond what we have already seen. While it is true that nothing has yet been announced about new stimulus checks, the year has just begun. By this we mean that there may still be some new plan that the United States Government can put in place. The year 2023 will be a long one and a great deal can happen.
For the time being, what we can do is pay our taxes on time. In case there is a quick refund from the IRS we will have a bit of an advantage if we have already paid our taxes early. In that case we could receive a stimulus check more quickly.
When does tax season start in 2023?
The 2023 tax season, which is for taxes for the financial year 2022 will begin in just a few days. The day chosen is January 23 and from then on we will have plenty of time to file our return. Taxpayers in the United States will have 3 months to file their taxes.
Although this date is already established, it is possible to request an extension of the calendar. However, this extension is not available to everyone. The IRS must have important reasons to grant it. Anyway, as we have said before, any kind of early tax payment will help in case there are new stimulus checks.
How to claim 2022 stimulus checks?
All stimulus checks should have reached their recipients by now. At least that is what will happen during this week. As of these days, anyone who has not received a stimulus check will most likely not receive one.
Taxpayers who believe they are due a stimulus check but have not yet received it can claim it. However, it is very difficult to get these checks as of today, as they have all been issued. The State of California was the last to send out all the checks and last weekend paid out the last few.
