On Tuesday, following calls from legislators including State Sen. Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods), Illinois Governor JB Pritzker announced that he would extend the deadline to file state income taxes. The Senate Republican Caucus sent the Governor a joint letter this morning asking for this action.
"I want to thank the Governor for heeding our call to extend the income-tax filing deadline. This move will provide needed relief to taxpayers throughout the state of Illinois at this difficult time and bring the state's deadline in line with that of the federal government. This action will help our residents maintain needed social-distancing and provide financial relief that people can feel immediately."
The Governor's action today will extend the state's income tax filing deadline to July 15.
