The check I received has rebates for both income and property taxes. The amount is immaterial when compared to the Pritzker tax increases, renters don’t get property tax rebates even though property taxes are included in the rent they pay: https://www.illinoispolicy.org/pritzkers-record-24-tax-fee-hikes-taking-5-24-billion-more-from-illinoisans/
Remember Pritzker doubling the gas tax? Adding $50 to the price of a sticker for your car? Why would anyone play video games in restaurants and bars when up to 50% goes to the state? See the list of tax increases at the link above. Notice the ones on businesses? Democrats think businesses pay that tax. They don’t, they raise their prices so they can pay them, they don’t have stacks of cash in the back room.
After the election the gas tax will go up again and the grocery tax will be back. Both were vote buying schemes.
There is a campaign under way to show Pritzker you can’t be bought. Donate your check to Darren Bailey. https://baileyforillinois.com/
One more thing: If you itemize your taxes the property tax portion will be federally taxable this year since you took a deduction for it last year: https://www2.illinois.gov/rev/programs/Rebates/Pages/default.aspx
