To qualify for the second round of payment, you must file your 2020 taxes by October 15, 2021 and have been a California resident for more than half of the 2020 tax year and on the date the payment is issued.

Your California Adjusted Gross Income must be $1 to $75,000 for the 2020 tax year or wages of $0 to $75,000 for the 2020 tax year.

The first round of Golden State payments on August 27 released 650,000 payments, aimed towards low-income California residents.

A total of $12 billion in direct payments is slated to go out to qualifying residents, benefiting about two of every three Californians.

Those who qualify normally receive an additional $600 or $500 depending on their income and number of dependents.

Residents who do not claim dependents and did not receive the first round of payments can be granted $1,100 for the second stimulus payment.
