Golden State Stimulus II PaymentsSeptember 2021 Tax News

Payments will begin soon. The State of California is preparing to send the Golden State Stimulus II (GSS II) payment to those who qualify starting late August. More individuals will qualify for this program than the previous Golden State Stimulus I, including individuals with adjusted gross income of at least $1 and up to $75,000 per year. Taxpayers can visit our website to use the Golden State Stimulus II Estimator tool to estimate the amount of their stimulus payment.

To be eligible for the stimulus, individuals must:

  • File their 2020 tax return by October 15, 2021.
  • Be a California resident for more than half of the 2020 tax year.
  • Be a California resident on the date payment is issued.
  • Cannot be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer.
