Volunteer Emergency Worker $500 Tax Credit

Volunteer Emergency Workers are eligible to receive a $500 tax credit if they apply! Our first responders are the backbone of community safety. Illinois is still in need of volunteer first responders and this tax credit was passed through the General Assembly to support our firefighters and emergency workers. The $500 non-refundable credit can be used to lower your income tax liability beginning on or after January 1, 2023, and beginning prior to January 1, 2028. Do you qualify for the $500 tax credit?
