Electronic Filing for Liquor Tax


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.

If you wish to create your own software for filing or create software to sell, please refer to the RL-750, Electronic Filing - Liquor Returns. Once we have received your enrollment form, we will contact you regarding testing.
