Illinois residents are in line for payments of $1,200 per person plus $500 per child from federal tax dollars under terms of a bill President Donald Trump is set to sign.
The legislation will provide payments of $1,200 to each adult and $500 to each child younger than 17, depending on 2019 household income. A married couple with children could get up to $3,400. The payments start to phase out for people with income of $75,000 or more, or income of $150,000 for couples filing jointly. People making more than $99,000 or couples earning more than $198,000 would not be eligible.
