No. The Form IL-2000 may be filed instead of the Form IL-941-X if you are not making changes to the originally filed Form IL-941. If you are making a change to your originally filed Form IL-941, you must file Form IL-941-X along with copies of the Form W-2’s, Form W-2c’s, and Form 1099’s issued to your employees or when appropriate, payroll records. If, upon our review, it is determined that all or a portion of the requested amount of credit is not available, you will be notified in writing and receive protest rights. Please note: You must request verification of the IDOR-approved credit no later than three years after the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the calendar year in which the tax was withheld, or one year after the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. Make sure to allow time for processing.
If no changes to the amounts reported on the original Form IL-941 are necessary, you may complete Form IL-2000 solely to request that an overpayment be validated for use as a credit against withholding liabilities in future periods. You must attach the required copies of the Form W-2’s, Form W-2c’s, and Form 1099’s issued to your employees or when appropriate, payroll records. You will receive a letter advising you of the amount of IDOR-approved credit that is available for use against withholding liabilities in subsequent periods. If you disagree with the amount we indicate as IDOR-approved credit, you should file a Form IL-941-X so that you can receive protest rights.
The Form IL-2000 was created to provide taxpayers a more convenient way to request the validation of an overpayment for use as a credit against future liabilities. It also allows timely notification of the availability of an IDOR-approved credit.
