Illinois Tax Refunds Come with Spending Info

Chicago Tribune: "Illinois taxpayers will get a little something extra with their tax refunds in 2014: a one-page sheet from Republican Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka that offers a broad overview of how state government spends money."

"The flier will be sent to those who receive their refunds via a check in the mail. It features a chart showing how the state's $35.2 billion budget is divided among various programs including education, health care and retirement funds for state workers. It will also detail the state's backlog of unpaid bills, currently estimated at $7.6 billion."
