Today is Tax Day… the deadline for filing your 2012 taxes or for seeking an extension to do so.
The State of Illinois expects to process around 6 million individual returns… the majority of them filed electronically rather than mailed in.
If you do mail it in, it must be in the mail and postmarked by midnight tonight.
Meanwhile, Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon thinks you should get a receipt when you pay your taxes.
Simon is proposing that taxpayers who file electronically get an itemized receipt breaking down how the state spends their tax dollars.
Her proposal could take effect as early as next year.
