Honorable Mark Mahoney
Clerk of the House
402 Capitol Building
Springfield, IL 62706
Dear Clerk Mahoney:
I have set forth on the enclosed page collection statistics for the Attorney General's Office
for calendar year 2010 as required by § 2 of the Uncollected State Claims Act (30 ILCS 205/2).
These statistics reflect cases referred to this Office by other agencies for collection. These cases
involve a variety of receivables, including taxes, damage to State property, child support, unpaid
educational loans, fines, and penalties. Collections for these receivables totaled $401,855,046.16.
The attached statistics do not reflect a number of important collection activities of the
Attorney General's Office that do not originate with cases referred by other agencies, however. For
example, they do not include Illinois' 2010 share of the proceeds of the settlement of the litigation
instituted by this Office against the tobacco industry, which totaled $283,887,102.82. Likewise, these
statistics do not include the Illinois Estate Tax which is administered directly by the Attorney
General. During 2010 the Office issued 1,529 certificates of tax determination and discharge
reflecting estate tax revenues in the amount of $236,347,699.33.' When the totals from these latter
categories are added to the numbers described in paragraph one, the combined collections for the
Office of the Attorney General in 2010 total $922,089,848.31.

s Estate tax returns are generally filed within nine months of death. Consequently, the great majority of
returns and payments of tax for 2009 decedents have already been received. Because there was no Illinois estate tax
for individuals dying in 2010, we will mainly receive late-filed or amended returns for individuals dying in 2009 or
earlier through most of 2011, with substantial numbers of returns for 2011 decedents not appearing until September
of 2011.
