Hawaii residents will begin to receive tax rebates of up to $300 per person at the end of August as part of a state’s plan for cost-of-living relief.

The rebate will be $300 per person for those making less than $100,000 a year and $100 per person for people who make more than $100,000 a year, with the tax rebates also applying to dependents.

Most of the rebates will be sent out to taxpayers by the end of October, with some receiving them as soon as next month.

Gov. David Ige (D-HI) touted the tax rebates and other measures at a bill-signing ceremony last month.

“All of us understand that the high cost of living is a burden for many in our community. We know people continue to struggle in the wake of the pandemic,” Ige said. “This means consumers will have more money to support our local businesses and our economy for the benefit of everyone.”

Hawaii is one of the latest states to give relief checks in light of inflation and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. New Mexico is beginning to send out up to $1,500 payments to some families, and Massachusetts is moving to give residents a one-time $250 payment as relief.
