Find out if you are eligible for a refund of between $20 and $5,350 before the two April deadlines.
Two direct payment deadlines totaling up to $5,350 are coming up next month in the United States.
As a result of skyrocketing inflation and economic uncertainty, a number of states and cities have instituted relief or tax rebate programs to assist locals.
According to the Consumer Price Index, annual inflation was 6% for the year ending in February.
The cost of food specifically rose by 9.5% year-over-year.
By submitting a claim by April 30th, Americans will have a better chance of receiving a payment.
The U.S. Sun explained the upcoming two-part deadlines and the information you’ll need to apply for and receive each payment.
1. KANSAS ($150-$700)
If they apply for their payment by the end of April, Kansas residents may be eligible for some additional assistance.
Seniors, people with disabilities, and people living on fixed incomes in Kansas can apply for tax relief through programs like the Homestead Refund and the Kansas State Aid to Families with Dependent Seniors (SAFESR).
In Kansas, eligible residents could receive up to $700.
Homeowners with annual incomes of less than $37,750 are eligible for the Homestead Refund.
You also need to be at least 56 years old, blind, permanently disabled, or have a dependent child who lived with you throughout the entirety of 2022.
It’s likely that a large number of these locals can claim the SAFESR Tax Credit as well.
If they meet the program’s requirements, low-income property owners can receive a refund of up to 75% of their property taxes:
Kansas residents have until April 15 to submit their claims.
2. AUDI ($20 to $5,350)
There is a potential payout of $5,350 available to Audi owners.
After a data breach, the company agreed to compensate affected customers out of a $3.5 million fund.
These settlements are only available to those who received notification from Audi or Volkswagen that their personally identifiable information (PI) or sensitive personally identifiable information (SPI) was compromised in a data breach between 2019 and 2021.
The size of the payment owed to customers is differentiated across three distinct eligibility tiers.
Participants in the main class whose personal information was compromised on a national scale make up the national PI subclass. $20 payments are available to these participants.
Meanwhile, class members whose SPI was compromised on a national scale make up the nationwide SPI subclass. These participants are eligible for $80 in payments.
Members whose SPI was compromised while they were based in California form a separate group known as the California SPI subclasses. These participants are owed $350 each.
Keep in mind that the number of claimants who come forward during the settlement could increase or decrease the final payment amount.
It’s possible to make a lot more money if you live in California.
Claimants who meet the requirements can receive up to $5,000 in compensation for things like fraud, identity theft, credit expenses, communication fees, and missed wages (up to four hours of unpaid time off work, at $50 per hour).
This means that Californians may be eligible to receive up to $5,350 in refunds.
You must submit a valid claim form by April 12 in order to receive a settlement.
