The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) is now accepting 2018 state individual income tax returns. The Revenue Department is reminding taxpayers that filing tax returns electronically and requesting direct deposit into a checking or savings account is still the fastest, most secure way to receive a refund. Direct deposit refunds could be issued around four weeks from the time an error-free electronically-filed return is submitted.
Taxpayers can file their Forms IL-1040 for free using MyTax Illinois. Individuals may also utilize the site to make payments, check the status of their Illinois Individual Income Tax refunds, and more.
