New Program to Help Illinoisans Claim Tax Money

Springfield – A new program is set to give Illinois residents their unclaimed tax money back hassle free. According to a release from State Treasurer Michael Frerichs, the so-called ‘Money Match’ program will utilize technology and state records to match unclaimed cash with qualifying Illinois taxpayers. The property must be $2,000 or less in cash with only one owner.
