We offer electronic direct transmission for this tax. Taxpayer participation in the Illinois Electronic Filing Program for Liquor returns is voluntary, with the exception of Schedule R, which must be electronically filed. The following returns and schedules are accepted: RL-26, RL-26-A, RL-26-X, RL-26-A-X, Sch A, Sch B, Sch C, Sch D, Sch E, Sch F, Sch G, Sch J, Sch L, Sch N, Sch R, and Sch RL-115.
To use this method of electronic filing, you can buy software from an accepted electronic filer (third party) or write your own software. Note: Liquor Tax returns can be filed online at MyTax Illinois. Participants using our free MyTax Illinois program do not complete Form IL-8633-B.
If you wish to create your own software for filing or create software to sell, please refer to the Implementation Guide for Direct Electronic Filing of Liquor Tax (below). To enroll, complete Form IL-8633-B, Business Electronic Filing Enrollment.
