Today is the deadline for Alaskans to file for their 2022 Alaska Permanent Fund dividend. The Alaska Department of Revenue has already received nearly 600,000 applications during the current application period, which opened Jan. 1 and will close at the end of the day on March 31.
Alaskans can apply for their PFD through the state’s online application, which will be available online until next Friday or via a paper application, which must be postmarked by March 31. People who have already applied for their dividend can check the status of their application online at myinfo.pfd.dor.alaska.gov.
Dunleavy last December proposed as part of his first draft of Alaska’s fiscal year 2024 budget the use of $2.4 billion for PFD payments. With that amount, the governor’s office estimated $3,800 payments to Alaskans this fall. Alaska North Slope crude oil was estimated by the Alaska Department of Revenue to be about $76.15 per barrel Thursday.
More information about Alaska’s current budget process and revenue forecasts can be found on the state Office of Management and Budget at omb.alaska.gov/fiscal-year-2024-amended-budget.
