Thank you for filing your 2013 Illinois Individual Income Tax Return. To help you understand how your income tax dollars are spent, we've created the Taxpayer Receipt below. Please enter the Total Tax from your IL-1040. The portion results show how your tax dollars were spent.
Individual income taxes are deposited as revenue into the General Funds. As shown below, the General Funds do not represent the entire state budget.
General funds make up about 50 percent of all appropriations. The rest comes from several other funds and help pay for transportation, medical assistance, children's services, energy and many other programs.
Data Source: Figures are from the state’s 2013 fiscal year enacted budget and represent general revenue and expenditures. They are provided by the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget and are rounded to the nearest dollar. For complete information on the state budget, please visit www.budget.illinois.gov.
Note: Amounts in the Illinois Taxpayer Receipt are based on the percentage of overall general revenue spending for each category in the Fiscal Year. It might not exactly represent the amount of your contribution to each category. Totals may not equal individual components due to rounding.
*Debt Service is money used to pay principal and interest on money the state borrows. It is a continuing appropriation.
