Illinois’ Income & Property Tax Rebates Begin

by | Dec 3, 2023 | News

Some Illinois residents will see checks in the mail or in their accounts thanks to new income and property tax rebates.

A one-time individual income tax and property tax rebate will be given to anyone who satisfies the requirements of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s Illinois Family Relief Plan, which was adopted in April.

Payment distribution is anticipated to start on September 12, but not all recipients will get their checks straight away. According to a press statement from Illinois Comptroller Susanna Mendoza, whose office is overseeing the procedure, distribution will take around eight weeks.


According to a press release from Mendoza’s office, the income tax rebate calls for a single person to get $50 and a couple to receive $100. Reimbursement of up to $300 will be given to residents who have dependents, $100 per dependent up to a maximum of three.

The payments will have income restrictions of $200,000 for single taxpayers and $400,000 for couple filers. You must have lived in Illinois in 2021 and met the income requirements to be eligible. Those who submitted the 2021 IL-1040 tax form will automatically be reimbursed.

Individuals who have not yet submitted their individual income tax returns and filled out the paperwork may still be eligible for a rebate by doing so online. The 2021 Schedule IL-E/EIC form must also be completed by residents with dependents.


A maximum payment of $300 will be given to qualified property owners as a rebate, up to the amount of the property tax credit they claimed on their 2021 IL-1040 form. You must have paid Illinois property taxes on your principal residence in 2021 to be eligible, and if you’re filing jointly, your adjusted gross income must be $500,000 or less. Your income must be $250,000 or less if you are filing alone.

According to the state of Illinois website, rebates will be given out using the same way that your first income tax refund was delivered. Your rebate will be given to you in the form of a paper check if you didn’t receive a refund, didn’t file an Illinois income tax return, or are seeking the property tax rebate separately.

Property owners who completed the IL-1040 form will automatically get rebates, much like with income tax rebates. However, if you didn’t, there is no need for concern.

If property owners complete the IL-1040 form, they can still obtain that reimbursement. You must turn in the application by October 17 in order to be eligible.
