Details Of The Rebate Checks Coming In 2014 For Middle Class New Yorkers

03.26.13 | Sarah Harnisch

We're learning more about a rebate check going out to middle class families in New York next year, courtesy of the state budget. Anyone making between 40-thousand and 300-thousand dollars dollars a year with at least one child under the age of 18 will get a check for 350 dollars by October 15th, 2014. They'll get it again in 2015 and 2016. But the 2014 date is coming under scrutiny, because it's just a couple of weeks before Governor Cuomo is up for re-election. Cuomo says he wants families to know he's listening and he knows they are under financial stress. Meanwhile, He's hoping the senate will wrap up the budget by Wednesday morning. The Assembly tackles it starting Thursday.
