Less Than One Week Left to File Taxes for 2019

Illinois Department of Revenue (“IDOR”) reminds taxpayers that the deadline to file 2018 state individual income tax returns is less than one week away – April 15, 2019. Individuals needing assistance by phone may call IDOR’s telephone assistance hotline at 1-800-732-8866.  Extended hotline hours for the 2019 tax filing season are being offered on April 12 (Friday) 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and April 15 (Monday) 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Automated tax assistance is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Over four million taxpayers have already filed their 2018 Illinois individual income tax return.  Of those, 2.2 million taxpayers have received refunds totaling $878.3 million.  IDOR anticipates an additional two million Illinois tax returns will be filed by the April 15 deadline.  An estimated 86% of all individual income tax returns are now filed electronically. Taxpayers can file their Form IL-1040 for free using MyTax Illinois.  Individuals may also utilize MyTax Illinois to make payments, check the status of their Illinois Individual Income Tax refunds using the Where’s My Refund? link, and look up their IL-PINs, amounts of any estimated tax payments they have made, and (when necessary) amounts reported on Form 1099-G
