State tax filing deadline delayed
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.
