ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance announced it has started mailing additional financial relief to eligible New Yorkers.

New York said today that they are issuing $475 million dollars in additional New York child and earned income tax payments for 1.8 million people.

Eligible New Yorkers must have filed their 20-21 New York State resident income tax return by April 18th of this year or had a valid extension of time to file. Most of the checks should arrive by the end of October.

The checks are automatically being mailed to those who received the Empire State Child Credit or the Earned Income Credit, or both, on their 2021 state tax returns.

No action is required by taxpayers.

“We’re delivering these relief checks to hardworking New Yorkers who’ve been feeling the pinch of inflation,” said Acting Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Amanda Hiller. “The average payment is about $270 for each recipient, which will help address rising costs associated with the pandemic and inflation.”
