Illinois’ current income tax filing deadline is April 15. Recently, the federal government has already pushed back the income tax filing deadline from April 15 to July 15.
State Senator Dave Syverson (R-Rockford) issued the following statement urging Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker to do the same:
“The ongoing COVID-19 health crisis has placed so many unforeseen burdens on the residents and businesses of Illinois. As the people of this state continue to work to navigate these daily challenges, I would urge the governor to recognize the hardships facing our residents and extend the state’s income-tax filing deadline to match the federal government’s extension.”
