Illinois Extends 2019 Tax Filing and Payment to July 15, 2020
The Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) followed the federal government in providing special tax filing and payment relief to individuals and businesses in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak.
The filing deadline for Illinois income tax returns has been extended from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020. This filing and payment relief includes the 2019 income tax filing and payment deadlines for all taxpayers who file and pay their Illinois income taxes on April 15, 2020, are automatically extended until July 15, 2020.
The relief applies to all individual returns, trusts, and corporations. This relief is automatic; taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call IDOR to qualify. Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances as of July 16, 2020.
The relief is not extended to the first and second installments of estimated payments for 2020 taxes that are due April 15 and June 15.
