E-file rejection error IL1040-8600-2: Primary Taxpayer Drivers License signature fields must be exactly as shown
Your e-filed Illinois state return is rejected with this error:
IL1040-8600-2: All of the following Primary Taxpayer Drivers License signature fields must be exactly as shown on the Illinois Drivers License or State ID and must be valid on IDOR's DLN production file, PrimarySignature, ILStateDLorID, 'DLOrStateIDNumber', 'DLOrStateIDFirstName', 'DLOrStateIDMiddleName', 'DLOrStateIDLastName', 'DLOrStateIDSuffix', and 'DLOrStateIDWeight'.
What this means, in English, is that the driver's license or state ID info you entered on the Illinois e-file agreement doesn't match what's on file with the Illinois Department of Revenue for the first person listed on the return.
You can either correct your Illinois driver's license/state ID information, or use a different signature verification method on your Illinois return (click here and follow the instructions in the Try This First section).
Note: If you didn't file an Illinois return in 2014 and 2015, your Illinois driver's license/state ID is the only signature verification method available to you. If you don't have this, you'll be filing a paper return this year. Next year, however, you should be able to e-file.
What if my info is correct, but I keep getting rejected?
If you've tried signing your Illinois return with information you know is correct, but you still keep getting rejected, you'll need to file a paper return.
The Illinois e-file servers will continue rejecting your return because your data doesn't match what they have on file.
Regrettably, we are unable to assist you further, as the problem lies with government agencies' data that we have no control over.
After mailing your return, we suggest you follow up with the Illinois Department of Revenue and request that they correct their records so you can e-file next year.
