2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program

The 2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program was created by House Bill 360. The legislation created a “relief rebate,” which is a one-time direct payment of $300 per adult Delaware resident. The relief is intended to help Delawareans facing higher prices at the grocery store and gas pump.

The Delaware Department of Finance will issue the one-time payment of $300 to individuals who have already filed their 2020 Delaware resident personal income taxes by the due date. This payment will be made to each taxpayer, including those who jointly filed. Taxpayers do not have to take additional action to receive the $300 check. 

The State of Delaware is working hard to issue the $300 one-time rebate to qualifying taxpayers by the end of May 2022.
