Tax RebatesOAKBROOK TERRACE – Illinois taxpayers can expect to see up to $700 in tax rebates in the coming weeks thanks to the State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton-supported Illinois Family Relief Plan.

“Hardworking families and individuals in Illinois have been financially affected by the pandemic, increasing gas prices and rising costs of groceries,” said Glowiak Hilton (D-Western Springs) said. “As a state senator, it was a priority of mine to provide direct relief to taxpayers who have endured so much over recent years.”

Supported by Glowiak Hilton, 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 starting this week – otherwise they have until Oct. 17 to do so.

“Hardworking Illinoisans have expressed their worries about being able to get back on their feet after years of financial turmoil,” Glowiak Hilton said. “It’s time for them to be heard – and this relief does just that.”
