Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has announced that eligible Michigan households will start receiving Working Families Tax Credit checks this week, providing much-needed relief to thousands of working families across the state.

The credit, based on the federal Earned Income Tax Credit, will provide an average of $550 to eligible residents, according to the governor’s office. This boost in financial assistance will help working families pay bills, buy groceries, and purchase school supplies for their children.

In a statement, Governor Whitmer said, “These checks that are starting to be mailed out this week will lift tens of thousands of people out of working poverty and directly benefit half the children in Michigan by helping their moms and dads pay the bills, put food on the table, and buy school supplies. We have your back in Michigan as you work hard and support your family. Together, let’s build a brighter future and a stronger economy.”

To be eligible for the tax credit check, residents must file federal income tax returns, even if they do not owe tax or there is no requirement to file a tax return. Additionally, residents must meet the Working Families Tax Credit checks requirements. If granted, the state will send a 30% credit check when that person files their state returns.

Last year, Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Legislature quintupled the Working Families Tax Credit, which will put hundreds more dollars back in the pockets of 700,000 working families. Starting Tuesday, Feb. 13, eligible residents will receive another check for the remaining 24% of the credit for the 2022 year, thanks to a new state law.

The Michigan Department of Treasury has already started issuing checks to eligible residents and will continue to do so over the next five to six weeks. To ensure they receive the credit, the State Treasurer, Rachael Eubanks, encourages eligible residents to file their tax returns electronically or connect with a reputable tax preparer.

Thousands of dollars could be left on the table if these credits are not claimed, so eligible residents are urged to take advantage of this opportunity to receive much-needed financial assistance. With these tax credit checks, Michigan is boldly stating that it stands with its working families, providing them with the support they need to build a brighter future for themselves and their children.
