2017 IL W-2s Required to be Filed Electronically by January 31

By Michelle Harrington

The Illinois Department of Revenue confirmed that ALL Illinois employers (anyone who has withheld IL tax in 2017) are required to file 2017 IL W-2s electronically by January 31, 2018.

If you have DHJJ handle your quarterly returns, then your DHJJ CPA will handle the filing.

If you process your own payroll, here are your options:

    1. Manually enter each W-2 through My Tax IL.
    2. Submit through the File Forms screen in QuickBooks (must be Standard or Enhanced subscription, Basic subscription not eligible)
    3. If using a different software, please check with your provider to see if the information can be submitted through the software.

If your company is using a payroll provider, DHJJ suggests double-checking that the W-2s are being filed.

If you have any questions, please fill out the form below or contact DHJJ at 630-420-1360.
