An announcement from the office of Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee said the state began issuing the payments on October 3, 2022. They will be paid to qualified filers over the next few weeks. The rebates are part of the fiscal year 2023 budget signed by McKee and approved by the General Assembly.

Refunds are available to Rhode Island residents earning up to $100,000 per year for single filers and $200,000 for joint filers. Payments will be sent to nearly 115,000 Rhode Island families.

“The Child Tax Refund Program allows us to distribute more than $40 million in direct support specifically to middle- and low-income families with children,” McKee said in a statement. “We know costs are rising nationwide, and that’s why Rhode Island continues to ramp up and ease utility prices, small business taxes, and day-to-day costs.”

The rebate program is administered by the Rhode Island Division of Taxation. Information about the Child Tax Rebate Program, including tracking of rebate payments, can be found on the Division’s website. discount webpage. The page will be updated frequently and most questions can be answered there.
