Illinois $300 Property Tax Rebate: Who’s Eligible?

Under the Illinois Family Relief Plan, over six million Illinois households are eligible for property and income tax rebates

While some people have already gotten their checks since payments began last month, others may need to complete an IL-1040 form.

Illinois Family Relief Plan check distribution started in mid-September. State officials say reimbursements will be made in eight weeks, so eligible persons may not need the paperwork.

There will be two rebates available. One is for income taxes, while the other is for property taxes.

How Much Money Could You Get and Who Is Eligible?

A single person will get $50, while joint filers would get $100, Mendoza's administration stated. Residents with dependents will receive up to $300 — $100 per dependent, with a max of 3.

1. Income tax

The checks will have income limits of $200,000 per individual taxpayer or $400,000 per joint filer. To qualify, you must have lived in Illinois in 2021 and met income criteria.

Those who haven't submitted yet can claim their rebate by filling out the paperwork online. Residents with dependents must fill out Schedule IL-E/EIC form.

Qualified property owners will get a rebate equivalent to the amount of the property tax credit claimed on their 2021 IL-1040 form, up to $300.

2. Property tax

To qualify, you must have paid Illinois property taxes on your primary residence in 2021 and have a joint AGI of $500,000 or less. Those filing alone must make less than $250,000.
