Have You Filed an Illinois Tax Return Two of the Last Three Years?

Yes, I have filed an Illinois tax return two of the last three years.

In order to electronically file your Illinois tax return, Illinois requires that you complete one or more of the following signature options:

  • Illinois PIN Number - (*Recommended*) If you have filed an Illinois tax return within two of the last three years, you should have an Illinois PIN number assigned to both the taxpayer and spouse (if applicable) by the Illinois Department of Revenue. If you do not have your Illinois PIN number, you can call (800) 732-8866 or click here.
  • Illinois Drivers License Information - Enter the following requested information exactly as it appears on your Illinois Drivers License or State ID for both the taxpayer and spouse (if applicable); 1)Drivers License Number (no dashes) 2)Drivers License First Name 3)Drivers License Middle Name (if present on Illinois Drivers License) 4)Drivers License Last Name 5)Drivers License Suffix Name (if present on Illinois Drivers License) 6)Drivers License Weight.
  • Illinois Prior Year Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) - found on Line 1 of your 2012, IL-1040
  • Nine Digit Zip Code - Enter your nine (9) digit zip code from the most current address on file at the Illinois Department of Revenue.

Note: At least one of the options must match the Illinois Department of Revenue records to be accepted electronically. We recommend obtaining an Illinois PIN Number directly from the Illinois Department of Revenue.

No, this is the first time filing or it has been more than two years since the last time I filed.

First-time filers or taxpayers who have not filed an Illinois tax return within the last two years are required by the Illinois Department of Revenue to print and mail your Illinois tax return. You may continue and complete the preparation of your Illinois state return within your TaxSlayer account. We will then give you the opportunity to print the return for filing from the summary page located right after the state return section of TaxSlayer.
