Discover If You’re Eligible for the June Boost: Four Direct Payment Deadlines from $99 to $1,044 Are Fast Approaching
The countdown has begun as the application deadlines for four rebate programs that could bring eligible individuals up to $1,044 in direct payments are rapidly approaching. Residents of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Colorado, have less than a fortnight left to submit their applications, with those in Colorado having the opportunity to apply for two separate programs.
These initiatives have been implemented by various states across the U.S., aimed at distributing funds back to residents, either from tax rebates or surplus funds leftover from the pandemic. For instance, Minnesota has set up a rebate program that offers residents amounts ranging from $260 to $1,300.
Similarly, the four impending deadlines correspond to rebate programs in the aforementioned states. Here is a detailed rundown of these four rebate programs, starting with the two programs in Colorado:
- Colorado Food Tax Rebate Program This annual program, organized by the City of Boulder, offers food sales tax rebates to lower-income residents. This year’s application deadline is June 30, with eligible individuals set to receive payments of $99 and families slated to receive $302. The income eligibility threshold is capped at $43,900 for individuals and $62,700 for a family of four. Additionally, applicants must fulfill at least one of the following conditions:
- Be aged 62 or older
- Have a disability
- Have children under 18 years old living in the household during 2022
- Colorado Property Tax/Rent/Heat (PTC) Rebate The PTC Rebate is available to Colorado residents, offering financial relief based on income to help cover property tax, rent, and heat expenses. Eligible individuals may apply for rebates up to $1,044, with the exact amount depending on individual income and expenses. To qualify, you must have resided in Colorado throughout 2022. Additional qualifications include being over 65 years of age, being a surviving spouse aged 58 or older, or being disabled regardless of age. The deadline for filing applications is June 10, 2023.

To qualify, residents need to present last year’s tax return and proof of household income. Applicants also need to have lived in their current home for the past five years, with the property tax value of the house being less than $250,000. Further eligibility details and the application can be found on the state’s website.
