Where's My RebateCHAMPAIGN – Millions of Illinoisans are waiting to receive their tax rebates as part of the Illinois Family Relief Plan. State Senator Scott Bennett is reminding residents they can easily check their rebate status online.

“Many Illinois residents are set to receive tax rebates that will help with current financial burdens,” said Bennett (D-Champaign). “Many have already received their rebates, but if you have not, it’s simple to check the status of it.”

Supported by Bennett, the Illinois Senate championed Senate Bill 157, a bipartisan bill which provides millions of Illinois taxpayers with financial relief – including direct tax rebates. The rebates began to roll out Sept. 12, leaving many to wonder when the funds will arrive.

People who filed taxes will automatically receive their rebate – otherwise they have until Oct. 17 to do so. To check the status of a rebate, click here and select “Where’s My Rebate?” An IL-PIN number is necessary to check the status. To find an IL-PIN number, click here and select “IL-PIN Inquiry.”

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 independent, 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.

“The rebates are intended to help families and individuals with daily necessities,” said Bennett. “Don’t worry if you still haven’t received your rebate. You can check the status online today.”
