Yes, you are taxed on the pension just like your brother would have been taxed.
You will report the taxable portion that is shown on the 1099R that you will be sent. You are not taxed in Illinois only your home state of MO.
If you had any state taxes withheld other than MO you can file a nonresident return and request a refund.
Please accept my condolences on the death of your brother.
