NEWPORT, R.I. (WLNE) — Gov. Dan McKee announced a new child tax rebate Tuesday for eligible households in Rhode Island.

McKee was joined by Newport Mayor Jeanne-Marie Napolitano, Sen. Lou DiPalma, and Rep. Lauren Carson at the Florence Gray Center.

In June, the governor signed the state budget which delivered a targeted tax relief to families, including a plan to offer child tax rebates.

The Rhode Island Child Tax provides rebates of $250 per child for up to three children.

The rebate also requires that “Rhode Island residents make up to $100,000 for an individual and $200,000 for joint filers.”

According to the McKee’s office, the plan would support nearly 110,000 families in the state.
