If you’re a disabled resident or senior (65+),
you can file for 2017 utility tax rebates

If you are age 65 or older or a resident with disabilities and you’d like to recoup some of your City phone and utilities taxes, be sure to save copies of your 2017 gas, electric and phone bills, including your cell phone. With those in hand, you may be able to file for O’Fallon’s utility tax rebates.

To qualify you must be (1) an O’Fallon resident who is 65 or older, or (2) you must be determined totally disabled by the Social Security Administration. And, (3) you must have an annual adjusted gross income of no more than $41,750 for a single head-of-household or $47,700 for a married (two-person) household. Social Security income is not counted.

If you qualify for the City’s tax rebates on utility bills, you can file for the rebates at City Hall on weekdays beginning Monday, April 2, through May 31st. City staff will assist you with filing from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. You must file for your rebate in person and be sure to bring:

  • A photo ID with your O’Fallon address (driver’s license, state ID or passport)
  • Copies of 2017 bills for gas, electricity, home phone and cell phone service (bills must show an O’Fallon address)
  • A copy of your 2017 federal income tax return
  • Proof of Social Security disability, if you are disabled

You can help speed the filing process by picking up a rebate form at City Hall or online (download here). For more information, contact the Citizens First Center at 636-379-5553.
