If you’re a California taxpayer being hurt by inflation, you may be getting some financial relief. “California’s budget addresses the state’s most pressing needs,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a joint statement with state lawmakers on June 26, “and prioritizes getting dollars back into the pockets of millions of Californians who are grappling with global inflation and rising prices of everything from gas to groceries.” The $17 billion inflation relief package at the center of the state’s new budget agreement includes direct payments of up to $1,050, depending on income and the number of dependents, for millions of California residents.
