* You’ll recall that the Illinois State Board of Education claimed this week that the Department of Revenue staff reported “a significant error in the TIF EAV data that the Department of Revenue submitted to the State Board of Education for modeling.” I immediately FOIA’d the board for all e-mail correspondence. This is their reply today…
Dear Mr. Miller:
This letter is in response to your request for information under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. Your request was received on Aug. 8, 2017.
You have requested all e-mail correspondence on August 7 and August 8, 2017 between the Illinois Department of Revenue and the Illinois State Board of Education.
The attached document (18-029-miller-doc.pdf) has been provided in response to your request.
* This is the sum total of all e-mails between ISBE and the Illinois Department of Revenue about the mistake in Revenue’s calculations, according to ISBE…
It has been brought to my attention that the queries that were built for the Chicago TIF values were not correct. I pulled these distributions from cook county and I think what was sent to you for U299 did not include all city of Chicago TIF’s. Please give me a call.
Illinois Department of Revenue Property Tax Division
