If you are an O’Fallon resident age 65 or older or a resident with disabilities, you may be able to recoup some of the City utilities taxes paid on your 2015 household gas, electric and phone bills, including your cell phone.
To fully qualify for filing, in addition to being a resident age 65 or older, or determined totally disabled by the Social Security Administration, your annual adjusted gross income must be no more than $39,400 for a single head-of-household or $45,000 for a married (two-person) household. Social Security income is not counted.
If you are eligible, City staff will assist you with filing for the tax rebates from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday at City Hall from Friday, April 1, through Tuesday, May 31. You must file in person and be sure to bring:
- A photo ID with your O’Fallon address (driver’s license, state ID or passport)
- Copies of 2015 bills for gas, electricity, home phone and cell phone service (bills must show an O’Fallon address)
- A copy of your 2015 federal income tax return
- Proof of Social Security disability, if you are disabled
