The deadline to apply for state economic relief payments has been extended
for one week, to this Friday, June 30.  


As we said in a message we sent out earlier this month, Governor Lujan
Grisham and the New Mexico Legislature enacted another round of economic
relief payments to go to New Mexico residents this year.  People who file
personal income tax returns for tax year 2021 will get the payments
automatically.  If you're in this group, you don't have to do anything
except wait for your rebate to appear, by a direct deposit to your bank
account or a check in the mail.  The rebates will be $500 for single filers
and $1,000 for married couples.


People who didn't file a 2021 income tax return because their income wasn't
high enough to require one can request an economic relief payment by going
to the Human Services Department's online portal at www.yes.state.nm.us
<http://www.yes.state.nm.us> .  

            * The website started accepting applications on Monday, June 12
and applications must be completed by 5:00 PM on Friday, June 30.  

            * You can claim the payment using either a Social Security
Number (SSN) or an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN).

            * The amount of the payment hasn't been decided yet.  Payments
will be sent out by the end of July.  

            * The payments will NOT be considered in determining your
eligibility for Medicaid or any other program administered by HSD.

            * If you're in this group, be sure to visit the Yes New Mexico
website and submit your application by 5:00 on Friday, June 30.

https://www.hsd.state.nm.us/new-mexico-economic-relief-payment/.  And if
you're a resident of New Mexico, make sure you don't miss out on getting
your payment!
