Illinois State Credit Card Disclaimer
The Illinois Department of Revenue is committed to providing its customers with the highest levels of service. In furtherance of this commitment, Illinois Department of Revenue allows taxpayers to pay many types of tax liabilities with a credit card, using the Internet. Taxpayers should check Illinois Department of Revenue’s website for information and updates regarding the types of tax liabilities for which credit card payment is available. Illinois Department of Revenue has made arrangements with the credit card service providers participating in the IRS’ credit card payment program to provide these services. A taxpayer making a payment by credit card may choose between three credit card processors. Taxpayers who decide to pay their tax liabilities by credit card will be asked by the credit card service provider to furnish personal identifying information, the credit card number and expiration date, the amount of the payment and payment application information. The credit card service provider will charge a convenience fee to taxpayers to cover its cost of providing this service. However, taxpayers will be informed of the amount of the fee before they confirm the credit card payment. Taxpayers who decide to proceed with the transaction will receive a confirmation number from the credit card service provider as proof of payment. Taxpayers should also note that, following authorization of the credit card payment, the credit card service provider will forward to Illinois Department of Revenue only that information necessary for Illinois Department of Revenue to properly credit the payment to the taxpayer’s account (i.e., identifying information, payment amount and application information). Illinois Department of Revenue will not receive any personal credit card information, such as credit card number or account status. Illinois Department of Revenue provides hyperlinks to the Web sites of the credit card service providers that participate in these programs. Illinois Department of Revenue does not indicate a preference for any credit card service provider, but presents such links solely as a convenience to taxpayers. The decision to use or not to use the products or services offered by these companies is entirely up to the taxpayer. Questions regarding content, privacy policies and/or security procedures of the credit card service providers should be directed to those providers, and not to Illinois Department of Revenue.
