Gov. Rauner gives tax break to IL tornado victims

CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ill. (WREX) — People in parts of Illinois devastated by tornadoes this month are getting a break on their tax deadline.

Gov. Bruce Rauner is waving penalties and interest for storm victims in Christian County if they can’t file their tax returns on time. More than two dozen tornadoes touched down in the Central Illinois area on Saturday.

Those who want more time for their taxes need to request a waiver.
