McHenry, IL. — On March 25, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced that the state’s income tax deadline will be extended from April 15 to July 15, 2020.
State Senator Craig Wilcox (R-McHenry) issued the following statement in response:
“I’m pleased the Governor acted on the Senate Republican’s request to extend the state income tax filing and payment deadline during this unprecedented time of challenge for citizens of Illinois and the nation.
The Federal government recently moved to delay the Federal tax filing deadline, and our Caucus felt it was only fair and considerate to also delay the state’s tax deadline to the same July 15, 2020 date.
The delay will help Illinois citizens maintain the recommended social-distancing practices while also easing their concerns about taxes owed. Extending the deadline is a simple act, but it will make a big difference for many people.”
