Illinois State Rebate Check

Tue Jul 30, 2013 2:14 pm

It finally arrived! I received my '10% of purchase price' IL state rebate!
I bought my car 11 months ago and submitted the paperwork once the license plates arrived.
The state only issues checks twice a year. I was really hoping to have the check by March.
A couple weeks ago I emailed the manager of Clean Air Programs with the IL EPA. He replied and stated the application was being processed and the check should arrive within three weeks.

Anyone else from IL get their checks, or still waiting?

Robb, did you get standard plates or EL plates? If EL, what number did you get? I have 373.

I bought my I-Miev in October and just received my Illinois rebate check a few weeks ago. Did you notice that our license plates are only $17 a year?

I live about a mile from the Mitsubishi dealer in Normal. I am curious how you got your I-Miev home to Rockford?

W9 form

As an individual do I need to submit this with my other documentation to get the rebate?
I am Not a business owner...

Does anyone know?

For the rebate, it has been a while, but I do believe you need to wait for the plates to arrive. The checks are issued twice a year. I think June might be one of the file-by dates.

My I-MiEV came from McHenry, about 45 miles away. I was able to drive home from the dealer.

The plates are $35 for two years, but if you get them initially issued at various intervals they are prorated.

So it will definitely be a while. By the way my plate is 1763 EL

Where are you in rockford....wish I could have driven mine home...but with L1 chargers between here and normal it would have taken Days!
