Last day to file for the Illinois Family Relief tax rebate payments
Illinois taxpayers must file a 2021 state income tax return by today 17 October 2022 to claim a one-time tax rebate under the Illinois Family Relief Plan Gov. JB Pritzker announced in September that payments for income and property tax rebates would start going out automatically on 12 September to those that meet certain requirements.
Those who made less than $200,000 in 2021 and are not claimed as a dependent on another return will receive $50 rebates, the amounts double for couples filing jointly. Households will also receive up to $300 if they have dependents, $100 per dependent up to three.
Households that pay property tax can also claim the amount that is equal to the property tax credit they qualified to claim on their 2021 IL-1040 up to a maximum of $300.
Anyone who hasn’t filed can still access the rebates if they file no later than 17 October 2022.
