The tax amnesty program signed by Gov. Pat Quinn last year brought in
$314 million for the state, more than originally projected. Delinquent taxpayers had five weeks to pay the state unpaid back taxes
accrued between July 2002 to July 2009 without facing fines. Quinn's office predicted the program would add $250 million to the state, but officials are now saying the program brought in $314 million. In total, the amnesty brought in $717 million, with the rest of the revenue going to local governments.
