Early Illinois tax filers collecting their refunds

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

More than 2.3 million Illinois taxpayers have already filed their income tax returns, with more than half getting refunds.

The Illinois Department of Revenue announced Thursday that $524 million in refunds have been paid to early filers.

Department officials say most of the early tax filings are coming in electronically. The state has its own tax filing program allowing taxpayers to file their returns at no cost on a secure website.

Working families and senior citizens can obtain free tax filing help at hundreds of locations in Illinois communities. A complete list of tax filing assistance centers can be viewed on the department's tax website.

Taxpayers with refunds coming can request direct deposit, a paper check or a Chase debit card.
