Does my spouse need an IL-PIN if we are using tax preparation software to file a joint return?

If you are filing a joint return, each taxpayer must have an IL-PIN or a valid Illinois driver's license or Illinois identification card on file with the Illinois Secretary of State to use tax preparation software. You may use our automated IL-PIN inquiry system to check to see if you were issued IL-PINs. You may be eligible to use Illinois' free MyTax Illinois program. Visit the MyTax Illinois Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

If you have additional inquiries, you may submit them to the Questions, Comments, or Request form.
