    Does Illinois exempt the retirement income regardless of age?
    I know in some states you must be age 59 1/2 before the state income tax exemption kicks in.

      Hi Clyde,

      According to Publication 120 from the IL Department of Revenue, you may include early distributions from qualified plans and IRAs in the amount subtracted from your IL-1040, line 5. This means early withdrawals are also excluded from state income tax in IL.

      Yes. Amazing as it sounds, pretty much all retirement income is exempt from IL state income tax.

      No wonder we’re in so much trouble – well, the corruption thing too – but still! :)
