They are made possible thanks to a surplus of $18.4million from the northwest suburb’s general fund that was fueled by a strong recovery from the pandemic.

The rebates, which were approved by the village’s trustees this week, are only estimated to eat up the surplus by $2.8 million.

The $150 direct payments are “signed, sealed and about to be delivered,” reports the Daily Herald.

Also, keep in mind that this rebate program serves as a one-off payment to help village residents deal with inflation.

The U.S. Sun reached out to Mayor Daily to see if there was an exact date that they will go out.


Schaumburg is just one area in the country sending out rebates to help residents with inflation.

In fact, California is sending out cash between $200 and $1,050 under its Middle Class Tax Refund plan.

It plans to issue another batch from Friday, January 30 through Saturday, February 14.

To be eligible, California residents must have filed their 2020 tax returns by October 15, 2021.

Plus, they must have lived in the state for at least six months in 2020 and still reside there.

Payment amounts and other qualifications are based on filing status, dependents and adjusted gross income reported on your 2020 tax return.

Another state is Idaho, where residents are receiving rebates between $300 or $600 depending on filing status.

It could also be 10 percent of a taxpayer’s 2020 income taxes, whichever is greater.

About 75,000 checks are being sent out weekly.

And this month, seniors in Indiana can claim a $200 tax credit once the Internal Revenue Service starts accepting returns.

Social Security beneficiaries who did not qualify for the state’s first Automatic Taxpayer Refund worth $125 will be eligible for it.

They can claim the $200 ATR as a tax credit on their 2022 returns.

Social Security recipients in the state must file before January 1, 2024, to qualify for a rebate.

Also, you must not be claimed as a dependent by someone else.

The IRS announced Thursday that Americans can start filing their tax returns for 2022 on January 23.
