Illinois Department of Revenue Extension Payment IL-505-I Automatic for Individuals Filing Form IL-1040 2020 What is the purpose of Form IL-505-I? Will I owe penalties and interest? The purpose of Form IL-505-I, Automatic Extension Payment, is to provide taxpayers who are unable to file their tax return by the due date a means of calculating and remitting their tentative tax liability (including any other taxes you will report on your Form IL-1040) on or before the original due date of the return (see "When should I file and pay?"). You will owe a late-filing penalty if you do not file a processable return by the extended due date, late-payment penalty if you do not pay the tax you owe by the original due date of the return, and bad check penalty if your remittance is not honored by your financial institution. You will owe interest on tax from the day after the original due date of your return through the date you pay the tax. We will bill you for penalties and interest. For more information about penalties and interest, see Publication 103, Penalties and Interest for Illinois Taxes. To receive a copy of this publication, see "What if I need additional forms or assistance?" on the back of this form. Who must file Form IL-505-I? You must file Form IL-505-I if all of the following apply to you: you cannot file your tax return by the due date, and you will owe a tentative tax (complete the Tax Payment Worksheet on the back of this page to determine this), and you submit your payment by paper check or money order (i.e., you do not use any electronic means, such as electronic funds transfer, to make your payment). If Line 7 of the worksheet shows you owe tentative tax, you must pay the full amount due by the original due date of the return. An extension of time to file does not extend the amount of time you have to make your payment. Do not file Form IL-505-I if: after you complete the Tax Payment Worksheet, you find that you do not owe additional tax, or you make your extension payment electronically by credit card, electronic funds transfer (EFT), or bank account debit. If an unpaid liability is disclosed when you file your return, you may owe penalty and interest charges in addition to the tax. See “Will I owe penalties and interest?” What are the extensions? Automatic Illinois six-month extension We automatically grant you a six-month extension of time to file your tax return. For calendar year filers, the filing date is automatically extended to October 15. You are not required to file Form IL-505-I to obtain this automatic extension. However, you must pay any tentative tax due by the original due date of your return in order to avoid any late-payment penalty and interest on unpaid tax. Additional extension beyond six months If you cannot file your tax return within the automatic six-month extension period, we will grant you an extension of more than six months to file only if the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) grants you an additional extension. When should I file and pay? If you owe any tentative tax, and you pay with a paper check or money order, file Form IL-505-I along with your payment on or before the original due date of your annual return, or as soon as you realize you owe tentative tax. Where should I file? Mail your Form IL-505-I to: Illinois Department of Revenue, P.O. Box 19005, Springfield, Illinois 62794-9005. Make your check or money order payable to “Illinois Department of Revenue.” Be sure to write your Social Security number, tax year, and “IL‑505‑I” on your payment. IL‑505‑I (R-12/20) Printed by authority of the State of Illinois, web only, 1. What should I attach to my Form IL-1040? If you file your return within the automatic six-month extension period, do not attach anything to your return to explain your delayed filing. If you file your return after the automatic six-month extension period and the IRS grants you an extension of more than six months, you must attach a copy of the document granting your federal extension to your tax return to avoid a late-filing penalty. Be sure to claim any Form IL-505-I payments on your 2020 Form IL-1040, Line 26.

Illinois usually releases forms for the current tax year between January and April. We last updated Illinois Form IL-505-B from the Department of Revenue in February 2021.
Form IL-505-B is an Illinois Individual Income Tax form. The IRS and most states will grant an automatic 6-month extension of time to file income tax and other types of tax returns, which can be obtained by filing the proper extension request form. Obtaining an extension will prevent you from being subject to often very large failure-to-file penalties. However, in most cases this extension does not exempt you from the requirement to pay any tax owed in full by the return's original filing date.
About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
