SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (NEXSTAR) – Governor JB Pritzker promised tax cuts in this year’s budget. Part of that relief will come in the form of a check directly to your mailbox.
Unlike the stimulus checks sent out by the federal government in the early stages of the pandemic, the state plan will scale based on a person’s tax applications.
If you filed tax independently in 2021 and earned under $ 200,000, you will receive at least a $ 50 check by mail. Shared files that brought less than $ 400,000 home in 2021 will receive a $ 100 check.
The state will send you even more if you have relatives – increase the total dollar amount by $ 100 for each independent. However, there are only three.
This means that the maximum amount that an individual Philistine can receive is $ 350, and the maximum amount that a common Philistine can receive is $ 400.
The governor signed the budget on Tuesday, which means these checks are coming, but no hard date has been set for when they will show up at taxpayers’ homes. The law says the Illinois Department of Revenue will complete the list by July 5, so checks will be sent out some time thereafter.
All data will be determined by 2021 tax applications, so if you did not file taxes that year, you will not receive a check.
