Am I required to submit copies of my employees' W-2G, 1099, 1099-R, 1099-INT, or 1099-MISC forms to the Illinois Department of Revenue?

I am an employer.  Am I required to submit copies of my employees' W-2G, 1099, 1099-R, 1099-INT, or 1099-MISC forms to the Illinois Department of Revenue?

You are not required to send us copies of the following, unless we request them:

  • federal Form W-2G, Certain Gambling Winnings
  • federal Form 1099R, Distributions from Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs, Insurance Contracts, etc.
  • federal Form 1099-INT, Interest Income
  • federal Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income
  • federal Form 1099-OID, Original Issue Discount
  • federal Form 1099-K, Payment Card and Third Party Network Transactions

You must, however, continue to maintain employee Form W-2, W-2G, and 1099 records for a period of three years from the due date or payment date, whichever is later. Each year the Illinois Department of Revenue requests these records from a sample group of employers.

Additionally, all employers and payroll companies mandated by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to electronically file Forms W-2 and W-2cs are required to electronically file Forms W-2 and W-2c with Illinois.
