SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – With the COVID-19 outbreak negatively impacting families and businesses across the state, state Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, is highlighting the decision to push the state tax filing deadline back from April 15 to July 15 as part of an effort to support middle-class families during the pandemic.
“With so many people in the community facing financial impacts from this virus, pushing the filing deadline back will bring some much-needed relief to our families,” Mussman said. “I applaud the Governor for putting our families first, and I will work diligently to find additional solutions to support Illinoisans as we face this crisis together.”
With the decision to move Illinois’s tax deadline back, both Illinois’s filing deadline and the federal government’s filing deadline are now July 15. During the pandemic, Mussman has made it a priority to bring vital information to residents to help ease the burden that is being caused by the virus. Raising awareness on the new filing deadline is just one way that she is working to bring relevant information to community members.
“I have been committed to providing accurate information regarding the pandemic to maximize our relief efforts,” Mussman added. “I stand with our communities in solidarity, and will continue to keep everyone updated as more information becomes available.”
For any general questions about COVID-19 and Illinois’ response and guidance, Mussman is encouraging residents to reach out to the Illinois Department of Public Health at 1-800-889-3931 or Dph.Sick@Illinois.gov.
