What? You Want Your Money?
- New security measures to deter identity theft and fraud will delay Illinois income tax returns this year, Illinois Department of Revenue officials said.
The agency won't say what those security measures are, but they could cause returns to take a week or longer, rather than days, spokesman Terry Horstman told the State Journal-Register in Springfield.
He said both paper and electronic filings will be affected, though electronic filings - the vast majority of the 6 million returns filed last year - still will be quicker.
You trying being a heartbeat late on any of your payments and see how the government tacks on fines, fees, charges, etc. But hey, your retro, your refund of overpayment, your contracted payment for doing business with the government, well, that's a whole separate story.
