Under the Illinois Family Relief Plan passed by the Illinois House and Senate, you may be eligible for a one-time individual income and property tax rebate.
You qualify for the individual income tax rebate if you were an Illinois resident in 2021 and your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is under $400,000 if filing jointly or under $200,000 if filing as a single person. The individual rebate amount is $50 for a single filer, $100 for joint filers, plus $100 per dependent claimed up to a maximum of $300. For example, a married couple filing a joint return with three dependents would receive the maximum individual income tax rebate of $400.
If you filed your 2021 Form IL-1040, you would automatically receive the rebate. If not, you must file your 2021 IL-1040 by October 17, 2022, to qualify.
If you were an Illinois resident and you paid property taxes in 2021 on your primary residence in 2020, you are qualified to receive the property tax credit rebate up to a maximum of $300 if your AGI is $500,000 or less if filing jointly or $250,000 if filing as a single person. If you filed your 2021 Form IL-1040 with Schedule ICR, you would automatically receive the rebate. Again, you must file your 2021 Form IL-1040 by October 17, 2022, to qualify.
The rebates are expected to begin being issued the week of September 12. Click here for more information about the rebates.
