What is the Illinois exemption allowance?

  • For tax years beginning January 1, 2016, it is $2175 per exemption. If someone else can claim you as a dependent and your Illinois base income is $2175 or less, your exemption allowance is $2175. If income is greater than $2175, your exemption allowance is 0.
  • For tax years beginning January 1, 2015, it is $2150 per exemption. If someone else can claim you as a dependent and your Illinois base income is $2150 or less, your exemption allowance is $2150. If income is greater than $2150, your exemption allowance is 0.
  • For tax years beginning January 1, 2014, it is $2125 per exemption. If someone else can claim you as a dependent and your Illinois base income is $2125 or less, your exemption allowance is $2125. If income is greater than $2125, your exemption allowance is 0.

If you (or your spouse if married filing jointly) were 65 or older and/or legally blind, the exemption allowance is an additional $1000, whichever is applicable. Please see the IL-1040 instructions for additional information.
