Legal Notices

Access to the Illinois Department of Revenue ("the Department") web pages is provided subject to the following terms and conditions. Please read these terms carefully as use of these pages constitutes acceptance of all of the following terms and conditions:

Persons Under 13 Years of Age

The Department is committed to complying fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Accordingly, if you are under the age of 13, you are not authorized to provide the Department with personally identifying information, and we will not use any such information in our database or other data collection activities. We appreciate your cooperation with this federally mandated requirement.

Personal Information and Choice

Information received by the Department from tax returns or from tax related investigations is not considered personal information and is discussed separately in the "IDOR Web Privacy Policy". "Personal information" is information about you that readily identifies you. Personal information includes personal identifiers such as your name, address, phone number, driver's license number and social security number. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (e.g., sending an email or participating in a survey). If you choose not to participate in these activities, your choice will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature of these web pages or any other State of Illinois web site. If personal information is requested on this web site or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law. Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children on-line or by email will be treated the same as information given by an adult and may be subject to public access. Again, information received by the Department from tax returns or from tax related investigations is not personal information and is accorded far greater privacy than personal information. For additional information please see "IDOR Web Privacy Policy".

Disclaimer of Liability

Neither the State of Illinois, nor any of its agencies nor any of its employees or agents shall be held liable for any improper or incorrect use of the information described and/or contained herein. The State of Illinois, its Agencies, employees and agents assume no responsibility for anyone's use of the information. In no event shall the State of Illinois, the Department, the Department's web site or any employees or agents of the same be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, procurement or substitute goods or services; loss of use, data, or profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of this system, even if advised of the possibility of such damage. This disclaimer of liability applies to any damages or injury, including but not limited to those caused by any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus, communication line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, alteration of, or use of record, whether for breach of contract, tortious behavior, negligence or under any other cause of action.
