What is it?
Under the Illinois Family Relief Plan passed by the Illinois General Assembly, qualified Illinois taxpayers will receive one-time income tax and property tax rebates. Those that filed as a single person will receive a $50 rebate, while those filing as a couple will receive $100 (married filing jointly). If you have dependents, you will receive a rebate amount of up to $300 ($100 per dependent, with a maximum of three).
Who qualifies for the income tax rebate?
If you were an Illinois resident in 2021 AND your income on your 2021 Form IL-1040 was under $400,000 (if filed jointly) or under $200,000 (if filed as a single person).
Who qualifies for the property tax rebate?
If you were an Illinois resident and you paid Illinois property taxes in 2021 on your primary residence in 2020 AND your adjusted gross income on your 2021 Form IL-1040 is $500,000 or less (if filing jointly) or $250,000 or less (if filing as a single person).
When will I receive the rebates?
Rebates are expected to begin being issued the week of September 12 and will take several months to be issued. Taxpayers who have filed their Form IL-1040 and qualify for the rebate should begin receiving their rebate at this time. Note: If the taxpayer did not receive a refund or received a paper check refund, it may take longer for the rebate to be issued. Taxpayers who have not yet filed or are submitting a Form IL-1040-PTR will receive their rebate after their submission is reviewed.
How do I get it?
Your rebates will be sent automatically in the method that your original income tax refund was sent if it was sent directly to you by the State of Illinois. If you did not receive a refund, did not file an Illinois income tax return, or are requesting the property tax rebate separately, then your rebate will be sent by paper check to your most recent address on file.
