Information provided by the Illinois Department of Revenue

CHICAGO, Ill. (January 18, 2022) – The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) will begin accepting 2022 state individual income tax returns on Monday, January 23, the same date that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) begins accepting federal individual income tax returns.

The 2023 tax filing deadline is Tuesday, April 18.

My Tax Illinois

“I encourage taxpayers to try My Tax Illinois, our free online account management program that has been recently updated and allows taxpayers to file their individual income taxes electronically,” IDOR Director David Harris said. “Electronic filing is also available through third party software or with most tax preparers.”

MyTax Illinois is an electronic management system that enables taxpayers to report income and claim credits and payments, pay taxes electronically, or receive refunds quickly with direct deposit, and receive immediate confirmation after returns are submitted.

IDOR received a total of nearly 6.2 million IL-1040 returns last year in 2022. Of those returns received, close to 5.6 million were filed electronically, or 90.3%.

MyTax Illinois also allows taxpayers to look up Illinois-Personal Identification Numbers (IL-PINs), which are eight-digit numbers assigned by the department and used as signatures when e-filing returns. Amounts of any estimated tax payments can also be viewed and (when necessary), amounts reported on Forms 1099-G and 1098-F can also be found on the site.

  1. Is there a new law in NW IN that allows restaurants to impose a surcharge when you use your credit card? This happened in 2 different restaurants this week.
