Oops. State officials on Tuesday announced they want millions of dollars back in alleged tax revenue overpayment.
The Illinois Department of Revenue said it’s discovered an overpayment of $168 million in tax revenues to some 6,500 taxing districts across Illinois. That means Chicago must return more than $19 million, Chicago Public Schools another $23.5 million and the Chicago Park District $5.5 million. Cook County owes $6.5 million, and the Cook County Forest Preserve owes about $994,000.
