Question
Explain the IL PIN

Answer

 

 

To e-file an Illinois tax return, you (and/or spouse) must have: 

  • Filed an Illinois tax return within the past two years, or
  • A valid Illinois Driver's License or State ID

If you (and/or spouse) have not file an Illinois tax return within the past two years and you (and/or spouse) do not have a valid Illinois driver's license or Illinois State ID, you must paper file your Illinois return. However, you (and/or spouse) should be assigned an IL-PIN to e-file next year.

 

Note : If your return is rejected with Reject Code IL1040-8000-2, IL1040-8000-2, IL1040-10500-3 or IL1040-9900-2, the signature alternative for the taxpayer (and/or spouse) does not match the IDOR Records.  Your (and/or spouse’s) signature alternative options depends on whether or not you have filed an Illinois tax return within the past two years.

 

 If you did file a return within the last two years:  If you have filed an Illinois tax return within the past two years, the IDOR should have provided you with an Illinois Personal Identification Number(IL-PIN) on your IL-1040 booklet or on a postcard. To obtain your IL-PIN, visit the IL-PIN Inquiry website or call 1-800-732-8866. 

For your signature alternative, you have 3 options (shown below). The option that you select for your signature alternative must the IDOR’s records are your return will get rejected. 

  • Prior Year AGI (IL-1040 Line 1)
  • Illinois Driver’s License or
  • State ID Number Illinois Personal Identification Number (IL-PIN)

 

If you did not file a return within the last two years:  If you have not filed an Illinois tax return within the past two years, the IDOR has not issued you an Illinois Personal Identification Number (IL-PIN) and you will need a valid Illinois driver’s license or state ID to e-file. For your signature alternative, each of the following must be entered exactly as shown on your Illinois driver’s license or state ID: 

  • License or ID Number
  • First Name Middle Name (if present on Illinois driver’s license)
  • Last Name Suffix (if present on Illinois driver’s license)
  • Weight
