Greetings! Welcome to the website of the Illinois Office of the Comptroller. This site was recently revamped to make it even easier for taxpayers to access news and information from the office, and “follow the money.” As the state’s Chief Fiscal Officer, the Comptroller is responsible for managing government finances, paying the state’s bills, and watching over public dollars. That role brings the added responsibility of ensuring that all financial information is not only available, but readily accessible to taxpayers – and that is what our new website is all about.
