Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced Wednesday that Illinois residents will have until July 15 to file their state income tax return, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune.

Here is a link to Pritzker’s formal announcement, which also includes more than $90 million in financial relief to Illinois small businesses.

The extension from the usual April deadline mirrors the extension for federal tax returns that was announced March 20. Both extensions have been made to accommodate the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

The Director of the Illinois Department of Revenue David Harris encouraged taxpayers who expect a refund to file their state tax returns as soon as possible. She urged them to use electronic filing and direct deposit.
