Honorable Tim Mapes
Clerk of the House
402 Capitol Building
Springfield, IL 62706
Dear Clerk Mapes:
I have set forth on the enclosed page collection statistics for the Attorney General's Office
for calendar year 2011 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 $533,107,171.64.
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' 2011 share of the proceeds of the settlement of the litigation
instituted by this Office against the tobacco industry, which totaled $268,443,765.94. Likewise,
these statistics do not include the Illinois Estate Tax which is administered directly by the Attorney
General. During 2011 the Office issued 355 certificates oftax determination and discharge reflecting
estate tax revenues in the amount of $106,945,099.41.' 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 2011 total $908,496,036.99.

1 Estate tax returns are generally filed within nine months of death. As there was no Illinois estate tax for
individuals dying in 2010, payments received through September 30, 2011 were generated from late-filed or
amended returns and estates that elected extended payments for individuals dying in 2009 or earlier. Returns for
2011 decedents were not due until after September 30 of 2011.
