Local governments across Illinois now have financial information at their fingertips thanks to the Illinois Department of Revenue’s (IDOR) new online portal. MyLocalTax provides a centralized location for local government officials to access information from IDOR, providing increased communications and control over finances through timely and transparent information-sharing. The new portal also frees up IDOR staff to serve localities more effectively on other pressing issues. Today’s announcement came as the department held a workshop for local government officials in Naperville, the first of many that will be held across the state during June. The MyLocalTax portal provides monthly access to financial tax allocation information, streamlines the local business tax data verification process, and allows for electronic communication between the agency and locality. MyLocalTax is just the latest step in IDOR’s continuous mission to innovate and improve its operations while safeguarding taxpayer dollars. Last year, IDOR launched a new mobile-friendly website to provide businesses, tax professionals, and the public easier access to the information needed most. Updates include a drop-down menu system at the top of every page, and real-time traffic-driven listings showing users what questions, forms, and tax types are currently garnering wide interest.
