Can I get an IL-PIN if this is the first time I have filed an individual income tax return with Illinois?

No. We do not issue an IL-PIN for first time filers with Illinois. However, if you have a valid Illinois Driver's License or Illinois State Identification Card, you can use MyTax Illinois or tax preparation software to file your individual income tax return without an IL-PIN. If you are married and filing a joint return, your spouse also must have an IL-PIN, a valid Illinois Driver's License, or a valid Illinois State Identification Card. Once you file a return with us, we will issue you an IL-PIN.

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