Only one weekend is left to prepare your taxes if you’re trying to make the Monday deadline. If you need help getting all the final forms filled out, help is available.

“For any individual needing assistance the Illinois Department of Revenue has its telephone assistance hotline available, 1-800-732-8866,” says IDOR spokesperson Terry Horstman.

Horstman sad the easiest way to get the job done is to e-file. So far, more than four million Illinoisans have filed, about 86 percent of them electronically.
