I got the golden state stimulus and that was an extra $600 I was not expecting. It’s all going towards bills but I’m still stoked 😂🤩

The payment is being dubbed the Golden State Stimulus and will be available for those who have qualified for California’s earned income tax credit on 2020 tax return and any Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) filer with an adjusted gross income that is less that $75,000.
But the California Franchise Tax Board claims some people may even be eligible for $1200. If you filed taxes before March 1, you can expect the payment to be on the way. Those who filed later will have to wait a little longer.
