What is State of Illinois ID #?

Turbo tax is asking for the State ID number in box 10 b on my 1099-G.  There is no box 10 b it ends with box 9 which shows the amount of IL income tax withheld.  Do I need to show the State ID # somewhere or not?
  • Im looking for this answer too! I will let you know if I get it.. The 1099-G for Illinois only have 9 boxes!
  • Same here. My 1099-G only goes up to box 9 as well.
  • I too need the state id # where is it sooo frustated
TT throws back an error with your return if you leave it blank.  I put the fed id # in and both my returns were accepted.
  • I called IDES regarding IL state ID # and was told that IL has no state ID # and that the standard 1099-G form only has 9 boxes. I entered the Federal ID # where it was asking for state ID and my return was accepted. Hope this helps.
I read on another Q&A site for a different tax program that it is the same as the Federal ID # shown directly below IDES address.  Does anyone know if this is true or not?
  • @xanderlink, I am would also love to know if this is true.

    I called and they simply said everything i need is on the 1099-G form. I tried to explain to them that this is not on the 1099-G and they said all they have is a federal id number. They also said there is no state id number. So not sure if i should populate the federal id in the field or if i should leave it blank.
Mine was 36-3042127 (western sub of Illinois) I need the state of illinois address and zip?
  • The federal carryover worksheet asks for the St loc Id, and when I put in the fed Id recommended in the community there isn't enough room.  This box only take 4 or 5 characters

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
