Legislators finalized a bill to support prenatal programs, pay down pension debt, and send you a check and, hours later, Governor Holcomb signed the bill into law.

Bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate overwhelmingly approved a plan to send Hoosiers a $200 tax rebate as a buffer against inflation. The checks are a little smaller than the 225 dollars Governor Holcomb originally proposed, but legislators made more people eligible by expanding the rebate to people who don’t file income taxes.

The money is on top of the $125 rebates paid earlier this year under Indiana’s automatic rebate law. Thousands of taxpayers who haven’t received those checks yet will receive a single check with both payments. Those who don’t file returns will have to file one next year to claim the $200 payment.

The bill addresses a Senate Republican priority by earmarking a billion dollars of Indiana’s six-billion in reserves for the state’s unfunded pension debt. And the package authorizes 80-million dollars in new spending on health programs for pregnant women and new moms.

  1. “The checks are a little smaller than the 225 dollars Governor Holcomb originally proposed, but legislators made more people eligible by expanding the rebate to people who don’t file income taxes.”

    If it is a tax rebate, why are people who don’t pay taxes getting it? Red state RINOS strike again.

  2. I won’t get the $125 cause I didn’t file a 2020 tax return but I did file a 2021 tax return even though I’m on a fixed income and I really think that if you are a non filer you should still get it people on a fixed income barely survive and the food stamps I get don’t even buy any food it will buy maybe a couple cases of water and one box of cereal

  3. Never got the first 125 so not holding my breath on the 200 next! And I’m a single mom who’s filed taxes with dependants every year!

  4. We filed taxes back in April – are still waiting for our refund. Our return was accepted but still not processed. We also haven’t received the earlier $125 amount. At this point I wonder if anyone is actually working on these things down in Indy.
