Tax Returns for GOP Gubernatorial Candidates

Republican Illinois Lieutenant Governor candidate Jil Tracy released her 2013 tax return following Chicago Tonight’s Illinois Lt. Governor Forum on Thursday. When asked by Host Phil Ponce about why she had not released her tax return, she said she had to wait until the tax return was ready and that no one had asked for them.

Tracy, whose husband’s parents founded one of the nation’s largest food distributors Dot Foods, was the last candidate to release her tax return among both Republican lieutenant governor and gubernatorial candidates.
