California Middle-Class Tax Refund Card: It was designed to help middle-class families facing high housing costs, healthcare expenses, and everyday necessities through the Middle Class Tax Refund (MCTR) program in California.

A significant portion of the refund money remains unspent despite the distribution of more than 9.5 million debit cards. As of January 2024, “more than one million debit cards, worth $611 million in payments, had not yet been activated by their recipients,” according to a March 7 audit report. In light of this unspent amount, recipients need to become more aware and aware of the MCTR program.

For residents to receive financial aid, the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) is encouraging them to activate their MCTR debit cards. In addition, the FTB encourages those who have not received their cards to contact the agency in order to ensure they receive their benefits.
