State Sales Tax Holiday August 5 -14, 2022

The state sales tax holiday is a 10-day period during which consumers can purchase certain clothing and school-related items and pay sales tax a reduced rate. The state's portion of sales tax due throughout the holiday is reduced by 5 percent (5%) from 6.25% to 1.25%.


Effective July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, Public Act 102-0700 requires retailers to notify customers of the suspension of the state one-percent (1%) low rate of sales and use tax on retail sales of groceries.


The IRS announced the beginning of the 2022 tax filing season on January 24th. Everyone is encouraged to have all the information they need in hand to make sure they file a complete and accurate return. Having an accurate tax return can avoid processing delays, refund delays and later IRS notices.

This is especially important for people who received advance Child Tax Credit payments or Economic Impact Payments (American Rescue Plan stimulus payments) in 2021; they will need the amounts of these payments when preparing their tax return. The IRS is mailing special letters to recipients, and they can also check amounts received on

The deadline for filing State of Illinois income tax returns will be extended three months to July 15.


On Tuesday, the IRS announced that most Americans can get a three-month reprieve to pay their income taxes for 2019.

The IRS will postpone the April 15 tax deadline by 90 days for millions of individuals who owe $1 million or less and corporations that owe $10 million or less.

Please understand that the deadline to file has NOT been extended. Taxpayers still have to meet the April 15 deadline if they are expecting a refund or are requesting a six-month extension, but they can defer payment for up to 90 days beyond that.

Have you been asked to complete a NEW, redesigned W-4?

Employees who have furnished Form W-4 in any year before 2020 are not required to furnish a new form merely because of the redesign.

The form is divided into 5 steps. The only two steps required for all employees are Step 1, where you enter personal information like your name and filing status, and Step 5, where you sign the form.

Complete Steps 2 - 4 only if they apply to you. Doing so will make your withholding more accurately match your liability.
