What does the Third Party Designee mean on the IL-1040, Individual Income Tax Return?

If you want to allow another person to discuss your return with us, check the box and print the designee's name and telephone number. The authorization will allow your designee to answer any questions that arise during the processing of your return, call us with questions about your return, and receive or respond to notices we send. You may revoke the authorization at any time by calling or writing us.

Note: Form IL-2848, Power of Attorney, can be used in lieu of assigning a Third Party Designee on Form IL-1040.
