  • Illinois is one of the few states that have a flat tax system in which everyone pays the same tax rate regardless of income. Illinois tax code is based heavily on the federal tax code. This combined with the flat tax philosophy of simplifiying taxation, makes Illinois tax returns much less complicated than other states.
