State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says Illinois residents will get a breakdown of state spending in income tax returns received in 2014.

Topinka announced the initiative on Monday. She says her office will also make the information available online.

In a statement, Topinka says there shouldn't be a mystery when it comes to public dollars in the state.

The tax return inserts will show what state agencies spend each year. It also gives a picture of the state's unpaid bills over time.

Topinka says that Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas started a similar insert in the previous tax season.
