Owe City Hall? FINES, WATER BILL, TICKETS? Rahm Emanuel may take it out of state tax refund
Illinois residents who owe money to Chicago City Hall could find a hold placed on their state income tax refunds under a measure endorsed today by the City Council Budget Committee. The city hopes to collect between $8 million and $20 million in unpaid debt from parking tickets, red-light citations and city administrative hearing judgments if the full council approves the measure Wednesday.
