Families will get rebate next fall

More than 30,000 Capital Region families will receive a controversial $350 rebate check next year.

The state budget that went into effect April 1 includes $375 million in tax relief for families with an income between $40,000 and $300,000. Families must have filed at least two years of state taxes and claimed at least one dependent to be eligible for the rebate, which is good for 2014, 2015 and 2016.
