Property Tax Credit

The Illinois Property Tax Credit is a credit on your individual income tax return equal to 5 percent of Illinois Property Tax (real estate tax) you paid on your principal residence. You must own your residence in order to take this credit.

For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2017, the Illinois Property Tax Credit is not allowed if a taxpayer’s federal Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) exceeds $500,000 for returns with a federal filing status of married filing jointly, or $250,000 for all other returns.

For more information see Schedule ICR, Illinois Credits, and Publication 108, Illinois Property Tax Credit.
