Still Time to Apply: Circuit Breaker Program Ends July 1st

The Circuit Breaker Property Tax Relief Grant program is ending July 1, 2012 because the General Assembly did not appropriate funds for fiscal year 2013. However, it is not too late to apply for assistance this year. Applications postmarked by Saturday, June 30 will be processed on a first come basis.

To be eligible for the Circuit Breaker property tax grant, license plate discount and Ride Free Transit card through the end of the 2012 calendar year, your total income in 2011 must have been less than:

  • $27,610 for a household of one
  • $36,635 for a household of two, or
  • $45,657 for a household of three

Don’t wait to file online or print the forms from the Illinois Department on Aging here.
