The office of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx settled 5,208
property-tax appeals during her first 11 months in office, resulting
in refunds to businesses totaling more than $79.5 million, with the
largest single settlement costing Barrington Area Unit District 220
$1.1 million in property tax revenue this year, the Chicago Sun-Times
is reporting.

The break for AT&T Corp. related to refunds it sought for its Hoffman
Estates office complex, which it has largely vacated in recent
years. AT&T was represented by the law firm owned by powerful Chicago
alderman Edward Burke, who held a fundraiser for Foxx at his home
shortly before her election and contributed $10,000 to her campaign.
