TIME is nearly up for more than 33,000 Americans to claim up to $1,000.
In New Mexico, families with one or more dependents can claim $1,000, while other households can receive $500 in economic relief payments.
About 33,544 residents are expected to be eligible for payment, the Department of Social Services (HSP) said.
Who does this apply to?
The deadline has been extended for non-filers in New Mexico.
Originally, applications had to be submitted by May 31, but that was extended to Friday, June 10, because there are $1.9 million in funds left in the program, according to the HSP.
Just keep in mind that these are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For those who file their taxes normally, you will still have plenty of time to claim your refunds.
They will be based on 2021 tax returns.
“There’s still time for New Mexicans who aren’t filing taxes to apply for a relief payment,” said Stephanie Schardin Clarke, secretary of the New Mexico Department of Taxation and Revenue.
“But even if someone is unable to file in time, they will still have the option of filing a 2021 personal income tax return until May 2023.”
In 2021, the standard deduction is $12,550.
How to claim
Non-filers will need to complete an application through HSD’s YES-NM portal.
You must meet the following conditions to be eligible.
- Living in New Mexico,
- Have a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN)
- Have not obtained or do not intend to receive a refund payment by filing personal income taxes in 2021.
The exact deadline is today, June 10, at 5 p.m.
