Rhode Island is ready to grant thousands of residents another rebate to face inflation.
According to the governor of the entity, several families will receive up to $750 in child tax rebates in the new 2022 budget.
After passing the budget approved in June 2022, eligible families will claim extra dollars to combat high prices.
For every qualifying child, Rhode Island will grant a total of $250. However, families will claim a maximum of three children.
The top amount that Rhode Island residents with a qualifying dependent can receive is $750.
