Cook County plans crackdown on tax violators
CHICAGO – Cook County is trying two new methods to go after unpaid taxes and fines.
Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle's office announced the programs Wednesday, predicting they could bring in $4 million to the 2013 budget.
New software will allow the county to identify scofflaw businesses that are unregistered and failing to pay taxes. Another program will use an Illinois tax-refund intercept program to collect unpaid fines for traffic violations and civil court penalties going back seven years.
