Last day for taxes. What you need to know if you still haven’t deposited
CHICAGO, Ill. (WCIA) – We’ve had an extra month, but the deadline is fast approaching. Tax returns are due tomorrow.
And this year, a group said thousands of people in Illinois could leave hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on the table if they don’t know how to claim the expanded benefits.
A group of nonprofits have teamed up this year to help educate people on how to maximize their returns.
For example, parents earning less than $ 112,500 can claim an advance on their child tax credit and queue for $ 250 to $ 300 per month in tax credits starting in July.
“For people who don’t earn enough to file their taxes, it’s not too late, they can still do it after this deadline,” says Meegan Dugan Bassett of Get My Payment Il Coalition. “If they have kids, they might want to file their case right away before the 17th to get the maximum amount, especially if they’re really struggling because they lost their jobs this year.
The Get My Payment Illinois Coalition says some people still haven’t received their stimulus checks – this could be because you didn’t make enough money to file your taxes. You can file your income tax returns this year and check this box on the form to request your stimulus check.
