Emily Boesen, a spokeswoman for Indiana’s state auditor’s office, announced checks will start printing on Monday, meaning residents can expect their rebate as early as Thursday. The process had been delayed due to a paper shortage, meaning the original $125 check can now be combined with the state’s newest relief money, equating to up to $325. Married couples filing jointly can expect even more.
“People will either receive $325 or $650, if they filed jointly, in a check,” Boesen told WTHR. “By only mailing one check, we are actually able to save over $1 million, because of the fees to print, postage and processing.”
“We have 1.7 million checks to print, and we are able to print about 50,000 per day. That roughly is an estimate of 35 days of printing, which again gets us to early October,” she added.
To print and mail individual checks can take up to 48 hours. Boesen said Indiana expects to print 1.7 million checks altogether.
