Through a combination of litigation and collection, Madigan’s office generated more than $36 for every tax dollar spent in 2012.
“My office seeks to maximize our ability to generate revenue to fund critical state programs and services while maintaining the lowest level of taxpayer funding since 1997. In 2012, we successfully collected over a billion dollars on behalf of the state,” Madigan said.
In 2012, Madigan’s office collected $1,118,090,309.69 billion on behalf of the state. The Attorney General’s office collected over $273.7 million through tobacco litigation and over $273.4 million in estate tax revenues. Every year, pursuant to state law, the Attorney General reports these collection totals to the General Assembly by February 1.
