Use for tax years ending on or after December 31, 2020 and before December 31, 2021. Illinois Department of Revenue IL-1041-X Instructions 2020 What’s New? • Schedules NLD, Illinois Net Loss Deduction, and UB/NLD, Unitary Illinois Net Loss Deduction, are no longer schedules to be completed and sent in with the return. Both schedules have been redesigned as worksheets to be completed to assist you with calculating your Illinois Net Loss Deduction. The worksheets are not required to be submitted with your return and should be retained with your records. See Appendices C and E in these instructions. • Due to the elimination of the NLD schedules, a checkbox for merged losses has been added to Step 4, Line 30 and a request for a detailed statement of the merged loss(es) has been added to the instructions. • If you are claiming a discharge of indebtedness loss, a detailed statement is to be enclosed and the box checked in Step 1, Line O. • A checkbox has been added to Step 7, Line 62, to indicate if there is credit carryforward to a different FEIN on the taxpayer’s final return. A detailed statement must be attached to your return. • Schedule I, Income Received, has been eliminated. Instead, all Schedules K-1-P and K-1-T you received must be attached to your return. General Information Who must file Form IL-1041-X? You should file Form IL-1041-X if you are amending a previously filed, processable Form IL-1041, Illinois Fiduciary Income and Replacement Tax Return, for a tax year ending on or after December 31, 2007. Your change can occur from a state or federal change that affects items used to compute your Illinois net income, net loss, or credit, such as • an amendment of your federal income tax return, • an adjustment made by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or • any other recomputation or redetermination. A separate amended return must be filed for each tax year you need to amend. What if I need to change my return before the extended due date expires? If you filed your original Form IL-1041 and a state or federal correction or change needs to be made before the extended due date expires (see the instructions of your original return), you should file Form IL-1041-X. Due to the automatic extension, any return filed after the original return and on or before the extended due date will be treated as the original return. If you are filing Form IL-1041-X before the extended due date to change the election on your original return to treat all income other than compensation as business income, check the box on Schedule NR, Nonresident Computation of Fiduciary Income, Step 3, and provide a written explanation indicating the change to your election in the “Explain the changes on this return” area of Form IL-1041-X. How long do I have to amend my return? The amount of time you have to amend your return depends on whether your Form IL-1041-X is being filed to report a state or federal change. State change - If your change creates or increases the Illinois net loss for the year, you must file Form IL-1041-X showing the increase in order to carry the increased loss amount to another year. If your change decreases the tax due to Illinois and you are entitled to a refund or credit carryforward, you must file Form IL-1041-X within • three years after the due date of the return (including extensions), • three years after the date your original return was filed, or • one year after the date your Illinois tax was paid, whichever is latest. IL-1041-X Instructions (R-12/20) If your change increases the tax due to Illinois, you should file Form IL-1041-X and pay the tax, penalty, and interest promptly. Federal change - You should not file this form until you receive a federal finalization notification from the IRS stating that they have accepted your change, either by paying a refund, or by final assessment, agreement, or judgment. Acknowledgement that the IRS received your amended return is not acceptable proof of federal finalization. If your federal change decreases the tax due to Illinois and you are entitled to a refund or credit carryforward, you must file Form IL-1041-X within two years plus 120 days of federal finalization. If your federal change increases the tax due to Illinois, you must file Form IL-1041-X and pay any additional tax within 120 days of IRS partial agreement or finalization. In order to avoid late payment penalties, you must attach proof of the federal finalization date, showing the change was reported to Illinois within 120 days of IRS acceptance, or you may be assessed a late-payment penalty. If you fail to notify us of your change by filing Form IL-1041-X, we may issue a notice of deficiency at any time. Once you file your change, we may issue a notice of deficiency within two years. What if I am amending my return due to multiple federal adjustments? If you are amending your original Form IL-1041 due to multiple federal adjustments that were finalized on different dates, then you must complete separate amended Illinois returns for each federal finalization date. For example, if you receive a 2020 return adjustment from the IRS on July 10, 2021, then in August, you amend your federal Form 1041 and receive federal finalization on October 22, 2021, then you must submit one Form IL-1041-X for the July 10, 2021, adjustments and a separate Form IL-1041-X for the October 22, 2021, adjustments. Failure to file separate amended returns for each federal finalization date may result in the denial of the entire claim, a delay in processing, or the assessment of penalty and interest. What if my amended return involves an Illinois net loss deduction (NLD)? If you have an Illinois NLD from any loss year ending on or after December 31, 1986, it is subtracted from and limited to base income allocable to Illinois. Printed by the authority of the State of Illinois - Web only, One copy Page 1 of 6 To determine your “Illinois net loss” start with your total unmodified base income and apply all addition and subtraction modifications, and all allocation and apportionment provisions. If you are carrying an Illinois NLD, refer to the “General Information” section of Form IL-1041 Instructions and Appendix C in the Form IL-1041 Instructions for how to calculate your Illinois Net Loss Deduction if you do not have a method of determining your net loss deduction. Who should sign the return? Your Form IL-1041-X must be signed by the fiduciary of the trust or estate. If there are two or more joint fiduciaries, the signature of one will comply with the requirements of the IITA. In the case of bankruptcy, a receiver, trustee, or assignee must sign any return required to be filed on behalf of the trust or estate. Any person paid to prepare the return (other than a fiduciary of the trust or estate, or a regular, full-time employee of the taxpayer, such as a clerk, secretary, or bookkeeper) must provide a signature, date the return, enter the preparer tax identification number (PTIN) issued to them by the Internal Revenue Service, and provide their firm’s name, address, and phone number. Can a reasonable facsimile be used? In general, you must obtain and use forms prescribed by the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR). Separate statements not on forms provided or approved by IDOR will not be accepted and you will be asked for appropriate documentation. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in failure to file penalties, a delay in the processing of your return, or a delay in the generation of any overpayment. Additionally, failure to submit appropriate documentation when requested may result in a referral to our Audit Bureau for compliance action. Trusts and Estates must complete Form IL-1041-X. Do not send a computer printout with line numbers and dollar amounts attached to a blank copy of the return. Computer generated printouts are not acceptable, even if they are in the same format as IDOR forms. Computer generated forms from an IDOR-approved software developer are acceptable. What are the penalties and interest? Penalties — You will owe • a late-filing penalty if you do not file a processable return by the extended due date; • a late-payment penalty if you do not pay the tax you owe by the original due date of the return; • a bad check penalty if your remittance is not honored by your financial institution; • a cost of collection fee if you do not pay the amount you owe within 30 days of the date printed on your bill. Interest — The interest rate is the federal underpayment rate, which is set by the IRS under IRC Section 6621.

About the Corporate Income Tax

The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.

Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).

Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
