In today’s blog, we will have various guides that will tell you how the most important US government benefit plans work and how you can apply for them. At the state level, several states still offer stimulus checks or similar programs and we’ll break these down and where they run.

We will also provide IRS tax refund updates and why they take so long in some places, especially in Georgia. There is a quick and easy tool you can use to check the status of your specific tax refund claim.

People are hoping for their tax refunds to arrive soon, as the April 18 deadline for filing 2021 tax returns is now in the rearview mirror. Also, don’t worry if you forgot the deadline and haven’t paid your taxes yet, as this can still be resolved without costly penalties. We also have guides that explain how to do it.
