The state’s tax filing deadline has now been delayed three months to July 15, just like the federal deadline.
Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced the move during a press briefing saying any refunds are still expected to go out on time.
“As Illinois families face unprecedented economic challenges during the #COVID19 pandemic, I’m proud to announce that Illinois will delay our tax filing deadline from April 15 to July 15 – giving our millions of taxpayers three additional months to file their individual returns,” the governor said.
In addition to the state income tax filing delay, Pritzker announced a $60 million small business loan fund which would offer low-interest financing to companies with less than 50 workers and under $3 million in revenue.
