IDES to Implement New Unemployment Insurance Process

IDES is working with the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR) to integrate the monthly wage reporting, the quarterly unemployment insurance report filing and the contribution payment process into the MyTax Illinois portal.

MyTax Illinois is the secure website used by Illinois employers and individual taxpayers to electronically file and pay more than 200 taxes and fees. Bringing the unemployment insurance process into MyTax Illinois makes great business sense and simplifies the tax experience for both new and existing Illinois employers.

Some of the benefits that you can expect to see will include the ability to:

  • Register your new business with IDES and IDOR in one secure location
  • Eliminate the time you now spend completing and mailing paper reports by filing your wage reports and paying your unemployment contributions electronically
  • Make changes to your account information quickly and easily
  • Get immediate online confirmation that reports and payments have been received and processed timely
  • View IDES correspondence, account balances and other documents through a secure message center

The scheduled roll out date is September 2017. Keep watching the IDES website for additional information. If you have any questions, please contact the IDES Employer Hotline at 800-247-4984.
