Following the state’s Monday start of issuing the one-time reimbursements, around six million Illinois households should anticipate receiving stimulus check in the upcoming days and weeks. The rebates are given to people who meet certain requirements as part of the Illinois Household Relief Plan, which Governor J.B. Pritzker authorized in April.
Monday’s press conference by Governor Pritzker marked the beginning of the check rollout, and he also tweeted that the rebates would soon be sent.
In a statement, Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton praised the Illinois Family Relief programme as a successful means of helping the state’s residents “combat inflation and decrease prices” amid “difficult economic times.”
Although the reimbursements are likely appreciated, they are much smaller than the cheques in other states.
Stimulus Check: How Much Are These Rebates:
Individual taxpayers will get a $50 rebate from the state, while joint filers will get a $100 reimbursement. A rebate of up to $300 will be given to taxpayers with dependents, with a cap of three dependents and a maximum of $100 per dependent.
The program will be open to a lot of Illinois people. The checks are available to taxpayers in Illinois in 2021 and have an adjusted gross income below $400,000 for jointly filing and $200,000 for individual filers. Additionally, eligible filers must have paid their principal residence’s 2021 property taxes.
The state will still give the rebate to taxpayers who haven’t submitted their income or property taxes as long as they do so by October 17.
Even though the stimulus check have been handed out since Monday, not everyone will get one immediately.
After eight weeks, the stimulus check should have been delivered to every qualified resident of Illinois, according to the governor’s office.
After their submission has been examined, people who have not yet filed their taxes or turned in Form IL-1040-PTR will be given the checks.
