Tax season is now officially underway in Illinois.  You can now go ahead and file your state and federal income tax returns.  Illinois Department of Revenue spokesperson Sue Hofer says they are once again urging all taxpayers to electronically file, which help you get a faster refund.

She notes a few changes this year.

Hofer comments

In addition, couples entered into a civil union can file electronically for the first time.  Last year they had to submit a paper return.
