Why is the Illinois 2017 form IL1040 not the correct form?

The income tax rate on line 13 of 2017 IL1040 is shown as 3.75%, but it should be 4.3549% according to the 2017 form IL1040 downloaded from the Illinois Department of Revenue website.

Why is the Illinois 2017 form IL1040 not the correct form?

IF you filed Federal first, and IL later, then the easy-access PDF is NOT the one that was filed with IL.

....if you filed Federal but haven't filed IL, then you need to do that now, and it will use the updated proper IL-1040 form

_________________________________________

..in certain situations the PDF file downloaded form your Tax Home page will be the wrong one.

_________________________________________________

First, if you just filed, you need to wait until the IRS (and state if that was filed)) both accept your tax returns.

Then wait at least another 24 hours

Then...........Carefully get back into your 2017 tax file.

1)  You do that by clicking on "Add A State" just below the state showing in the left panel. (picture 1)

*****That doesn't do anything but get you into your 2017 file.  Do NOT change anything.

2)  then go to the left side and go into the "Tax Tools" menu to find the "Print Center"  print out or save your tax return PDF file that way to see what's in it.  (Picture 2).

That will be the correct one that was actually filed.
