IL Taxpayers Affected By Tornadoes Get Extension
Illinois taxpayers affected by last month's deadly tornadoes are getting more time to file their returns.
Gov. Pat Quinn says property owners harmed by the Nov. 17 twisters that raked portions of the state now will have until May 31 to file any Illinois tax returns that were due on or after Nov. 15.
The Chicago Democrat says "communities across Illinois should focus on recovery — not deadlines" in the wake of the two dozen tornadoes that barreled through the state, killing seven people.
Quinn's office says anyone filing paper tax forms by mail should write "Tornado — November 2013" in red on the outside of the envelope and on the top of the tax return.
