One State Has a New Tax Rebate Plan (Let’s Call it Stimulus Check)


Less than a month to claim Illinois tax credits (aka an incentive check by another name) – Illinois residents are all set to receive a tax credit worth as much as $700 under the Illinois Family Relief Plan. What amounts to a new incentive scheme has been enacted as part of legislation introduced by state senator Meg Loughran Cappel, and it sets aside millions of dollars to be returned to those who filed their 2021 taxes.

In a statement, Cappel cited the rising cost of fuel and food as the reason for the rebates, and emphasized the importance of two-pronged efforts in the state legislature to help those in need.

“From pandemic losses to the increased cost of living, families across the state are facing financial hardship,” Cappel said. “As a General Assembly, we recognized the daily struggles of hard-working people and adopted a comprehensive plan to provide them with much-needed assistance to help them get back on their feet.”

Stimulus Control: Are You Eligible?

To receive the rebates, you must be an Illinois resident and must have paid Illinois real estate taxes in 2021. Taxes must be paid on a primary residence by 2020, and an eligible person’s income will be $400,000 or less for those jointly and $200,000 or less for individuals.

How much can you claim?

Under the scheme, taxpayers can expect a $50 and $100 discount per married couple filing taxes jointly. Although it is significantly less than the discounts given in other states, such as California, where residents can expect as much as $1,050 from the middle-class tax refund scheme, the Illinois discount is easy to come by and is distributed to most workers in the United States. sent throughout the state.

Less than a month to claim this kind of new stimulus check

Although the payments are already being handed out, there are still some who qualify for the stimulus check but have not filed the necessary paperwork to receive them.

Fortunately, there is still time for people to file a report. To receive payment, taxpayers must file Form IL-1040 by October 17.

Those who have not submitted that form, or who are not required to submit their 2021 IL-1040, must still submit the form to receive the income tax credit. There are also other forms that must be submitted to ensure you are eligible. These include Schedule IL-E/EIC, Illinois Exemption, and Earned Income Credit, all of which are used to determine eligible dependents.

Submitting the papers is easy. You can complete and submit the form digitally using the MyTax Illinois system or submit the paper form IL-1040-PTR.
