City of O’Fallon announces new procedures for the annual Senior Utility Tax Rebate due to COVID-19
With O’Fallon’s annual senior utility tax rebate scheduled to start on April 15, the City of O’Fallon announced new procedures that will be in place for the 2020 rebate only.
Any senior who received the rebate in 2019 will receive a letter from the City asking the individual to confirm that he/she still lives in the City of O’Fallon. Once the City receives that letter, the individual will be mailed a rebate check equal to his/her 2019 senior utility tax rebate.
This year only, the City will not be accepting new applicants for 2020. Any new applicants who have either moved to O’Fallon during 2019 or aged into eligibility will be able to apply for a 2-year rebate during 2021 provided they meet the eligibility requirements for both 2020 and 2021. When applying in 2021, new applicants will need to bring their tax returns and utility bills (gas, electric and telephone) for both 2019 and 2020.To qualify for the Utility Tax Rebate, you must be an O’Fallon resident who is 65+ or you have been determined totally disabled by the Social Security Administration (legal proof of disability is required). And, you must have an annual gross adjusted gross income that is less than the Federal guidelines. The guidelines for 2020 are $45,550 for a single household or $52,050 for a married (two-person) household. Social Security income is not counted. As stated previously, new 2020 applicants must wait until 2021 to apply. Thank you for understanding!
