Most Idaho stimulus payments have already been sent, but for those who filed their taxes late, rebates will be processed throughout 2022 and into 2023. Two stimulus payments were authorized in Idaho. The first was the higher of $75 or 12% of a tax filer’s liability before credits and other adjustments, while the second was the greater of $300 for single filers ($600 for joint filers) or 10% of the tax liability before credits and other adjustments. 


Illinois began sending stimulus payments in September 2022, but the process is ongoing and is expected to last throughout much of the rest of the year.

The property tax rebate is equal to the property tax credit claimed on a filer’s return, up to $300.
