State Spending To Be Part Of Tax Returns
State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says Illinois residents will get a breakdown of state spending in income tax returns received in 2014.
Topinka announced the initiative on Monday. She says her office will also make the information available online. In a statement, Topinka says there shouldn't be a mystery when it comes to public dollars in the state.
The tax return inserts will show what state agencies spend each year. It also gives a picture of the state's unpaid bills over time.
Topinka says that Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas started a similar insert in the previous tax season.
