Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's latest tax returns give some insights beyond how much he paid in taxes. IPR’S Amanda Vinicky has more.
According to the handwritten returns, Quinn donated $7500 of his $177,412 paycheck. That's about 4-percent to charity. His office didn't provide a list of which charities. But his state tax refund check-offs demonstrate his longstanding affection for veterans' issues.
Illinois gives taxpayers eight funds they can donate to. Quinn gave $10 each to seven of them including breast and cervical cancer research, child abuse prevention and an after school rescue fund. But military family relief got $100.
