Bernthal-The Way It Oughta Be: Ticket Tax Refund

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

If you failed to pay a ticket then the money will be reduced from your tax refund.  It's a way for the state to collect from deadbeat drivers.

Several Illinois communities participate including Collinsville.

Sounds like a great idea.  In fact I like it so much why not do the same for dead beat dads.

Reduce the refund and send it to the person entitled to it.

The whole idea was a way for cash strapped Illinois to recoup some of its losses.

It just goes to show if there's a will there's a way.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
