15585: IL - Monthly Report (DAS)


Drake Accounting®: How do I generate an Illinois monthly report?


The Illinois Monthly Report is now available in Drake Accounting®. It creates a .csv file to display wages for the month you select under Employees > State Tax & Wage Forms.

To create this file:

Go to Employees or On the Fly > State Tax & Wage Forms.

  • For state, select IL.
  • Select IL Monthly Report.
  • Choose Monthly for the frequency.
  • Choose the Month for which the report should be run. 

In DAS 2019, the report will produce and you can select to save or print it if desired.  

In DAS 2018, the report will not produce within the software, but will be automatically saved. A message will display to inform you that the file has been created, along with its saved location.

When you click OK, it will open Windows Explorer and show the .csv file. Double-click on the file name to open it.

Note: The file name reports the month, year, and the number of the report. For example, the first file was run for January 2018, and is the first file created.

You can also verify the file has been created when you go to e-Filings > Manage e-Filings.

 Once you have successfully created the file, log in to MyTax Illinois to upload the file.
