Officials in Illinois have said that rebate checks will start going out to taxpayers on September 12, but they warn that it could take up to eight weeks for the checks to get there.
Tax returns could take anywhere from 90 to 120 days to process. Taxpayers who file separately will get a $50 rebate, while those who file jointly will get a $100 payment.
The government says that families with children will get up to $300. Single Illinoisans whose adjusted gross income was less than $200,000 will be able to get their money back.
The limit for joint filers is $400,000. Illinoisans have until October 17 to file their taxes, but those who have already done so will automatically get their rebates.
My Tax Illinois lets them track their tax rebate. Illinois is also giving homeowners who made less than $250,000 or $500,000 as a couple a tax rebate.
Homeowners can get up to $300, which is the amount of the property tax credit they were eligible for in 2021.
October 17 is also the last day to file for a property tax rebate. The government has confirmed that neither of the rebates will be taxed.
The first batch of rebates was sent out on September 6, so taxpayers should have their checks by September 12.
If you are a single taxpayer and your adjusted gross income is less than $100,000, you will get $300.
