It's been more than two years since the last round of federal stimulus checks, but at least three states are still sending out similar tax rebate payments of their own this fall.

State "stimulus checks" emerged as a trend in 2022 as governors and state lawmakers moved to kick money back to residents to help them deal with inflation and the lingering economic impacts of the pandemic. These programs were possible in part because federal money and higher-than-expected state revenues last year led to state budget surpluses and record financial reserves.

Three states — Alabama, Arizona and Virginia — are still giving out one-time tax rebates in the final months of 2023, which is unique because most states that issued these stimulus check-style payments concluded those programs last year.

A handful of other state relief programs wrapped up recently, and the last day to claim Georgia's surplus tax refund is Monday, Oct. 16. The deadline to postmark applications for Montana's property tax rebate of up to $675 was Oct. 2. Minnesota sent out about 2.1 million payments in August and September for its one-time $260 rebate program for each eligible taxpayer, giving out nearly $1 billion total, according to the Minnesota Department of Revenue.
