Waiting for an Illinois state income tax refund?

The Illinois Office of Comptroller sends out income tax refunds within 24-48 hours of receiving the information from the Illinois Department of Revenue. If you have any questions about your refund or the timing of your refund, please contact the Department of Revenue- My Tax IL. If you have questions about your federal tax refund, please contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-Check My Refunds Status.

Refunds will continue to be paid as Department of Revenue completes their reviews. The extension of the tax filing deadline to July 15 will not slow down refunds.
