About This Tax Season

We are taking additional steps to protect Illinois taxpayers from identity theft and fraud. As a result of the new security measures, your Individual Income Tax refund may take longer to process this year than in previous years. Filing your Form IL-1040 electronically and requesting direct deposit is still the fastest way to receive your refund. You can file your Form IL-1040 for free on MyTax Illinois, our online account management program for taxpayers.

Due dates which fall on April 15, 2016, have been extended to April 18, 2016. We are following the Internal Revenue Service in extending the due date because of the Emancipation Day holiday being observed on April 15 in the District of Columbia.
