Tax filing deadline less than two weeks away
CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Revenue reminded taxpayers that there are less than two weeks before the traditional April 15 filing deadline.
To date, the Department has processed almost 3.2 million tax returns and has issued more than $745 million in tax refunds. Taxpayers who file their returns electronically receive their refunds much faster than those who file paper returns.
More than 93 percent of taxpayers have filed their taxes electronically, and of those, more than a quarter million used the free WebFile program at tax.illinois.gov. Taxpayers using the Department’s website to file their state returns have the option of direct deposit of refunds or having refunds put on pre-paid debit cards, to avoid the cost of check cashing services. More than 2,000 taxpayers received a debit card as part of this year’s pilot program.
