Gov. Pat Quinn has prepared an election-year spending proposal that would make permanent the 67 percent income tax increase set to expire in 2015 and couple it with property tax relief for homeowners, sources familiar with the plan said Tuesday.
The temporary tax increase he signed into law in 2011 is needed to fund education and the property tax relief would take the form of a $500 refund.
So who gives the 500 dollar property tax refund? The state or the local counties?
