2022StateOfIllinoisTaxRebatesCHAMPAIGN – Illinois taxpayers can expect to see up to $700 in tax rebates in the coming weeks thanks to the Illinois Family Relief Plan, backed by State Senator Scott Bennett.

“In recent years, communities have been struck with financial distress,” said Bennett (D-Champaign). “Giving back to these communities so they can start to recover is the right thing to do.”

Supported by Bennett, the Illinois Senate championed Senate Bill 157, which provides millions of Illinois taxpayers with financial relief – including direct tax rebates.

Under the law, people who filed 2021 Illinois taxes are eligible to receive up to $700. Individual filers who make less than $200,000 will receive a $50 income tax rebate, and couples who make less than $400,000 will receive $100. Filers are also eligible for $100 per dependent, with a maximum of three. 

Additionally, people who paid property taxes in 2021 on their primary residence in 2020 – and make less than $250,000 individually or $500,000 jointing – are eligible for up to $300. The rebate will be equal to the property tax a resident was qualified to claim on their 2021 taxes.

People who filed taxes will automatically receive their rebate– otherwise they have until Oct. 17 to do so. 

“It is important for families in Illinois to know they are not alone,” Bennett said. “The purpose of these rebates is to help residents with everyday expenses – from buying gas to putting food on the table, and everything in between.”
