If your husband is a resident of Illinois, the he will have to file an Illinois resident tax return whether he lived there or not.  If you can provide more information about your situation we may be able to help further.

Active duty military file their tax returns in their state of legal residence. A nonmilitary spouse may be able to choose to keep that same legal residence as the military spouse. See the link below for additional information:
