Pritzker To Repay Cook County Property Tax Money
Illinois governor candidate J.B. Pritzker will repay more than 330-thousand-dollars in property tax breaks he received on one of his mansions in Chicago's Gold Coast. The billionaire announced the move yesterday following a county inspector general report claiming he took part in a scheme to defraud Cook County taxpayers. Pritzker received the refunds after his wife asked a contractor to remove the mansion's toilets in order to obtain a property tax reduction. Pritzker's campaign said he will repay the county by the end of the week.
