It’s not too late to file a tax return to claim your missing stimulus money! The IRS extended the tax-filing deadline to May 17, 2021. Even after the deadline, you can still file to claim your money! If you do not owe any Federal taxes, then you can file your return after the deadline without a penalty - in fact, you have 3 years to claim your refund.

You could be eligible for thousands of dollars in stimulus checks and tax credits!

Most Illinoisans are eligible for stimulus checks from the Federal government and many may also qualify for more money through tax credits like the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Even if you have little to no income you may be eligible, but you may need to take action.
