IDOR Workshops


The Illinois Department of Revenue will be holding informational workshops in calendar year 2019 to act as tutorials on the new MyLocalTax portal.  If time permits, we will also discuss items related to the allocation and distribution of taxes to local governments including updates on changes that have happened due to legislation. 

We encourage municipal officials, county officials and their staff members to attend the workshops.  Clerks, treasurers, fiscal officers, and staff who are responsible for reviewing taxpayer listings, requesting & reviewing confidential information or are directly involved in the financial operations of the local government would benefit from these workshops.

There are no fees and no limit on the number of people from each local government who may attend.  More information about the workshops can be found at https://www2.illinois.gov/rev/localgovernments/Pages/localgovworkshop.aspx

Please provide the following information for each person attending the workshop when you register:

  • Name

  • Local government name
  • E-mail address
  • Address
  • Telephone number
