Who is eligible for $130 in gas savings or up to $400 in direct payments?

It is still unclear what financial relief residents in Indiana will receive, but they can expect some soon.

As part of the $1 billion budget surplus, Governor Eric Holcomb originally proposed sending $225 rebate checks to Hoosiers.

Despite the rebates passing in the House, Senate Republicans had other plans.

Hoosiers were hardest hit by June's high inflation in food and gas, the Senate proposed suspending gas and utility sales taxes.

An amendment to the Senate's plan could offer $400 checks to those who qualify, saving the average household about $130.

Gas sales tax would be capped at 29.5 cents per gallon until June 30, 2023, or the end of the fiscal year.

In the event that fuel prices decrease, the sales tax would also decrease.

As part of Indiana's automatic taxpayer refund law (ATR), Holcomb's proposal would have provided rebates of $225 to taxpayers.

The House proposal

Instead of suspending the gas tax, his proposal provided broader relief.

In addition to giving taxpayers their money back, this plan would also have included non-filing Hoosiers.

Other funding included:

1. Prenatal and postnatal services

2. Adoption, child tax credits, and exempting diapers from sales tax
