Gov. Quinn Says Filing Last-Minute Taxes is OK



    Gov. Pat Quinn admitted he's a procrastinator when it comes to taxes.

    The Governor said there's nothing wrong with waiting until the last minute to file tax returns. In fact, Quinn said he’s filing them close to the deadline himself.

    With Monday’s deadline for filing taxes quickly approaching, Quinn said he just hopes people get them in on time.

    “You can file early on and if people want to do that I commend them, but those of us who often do our term papers at the last minute often times do our taxes at the last minute,” he said. “But as long as you get in on the deadline you’re OK and that’s what I plan to do.”

    Quinn admitted that filing taxes is “no fun,” but said it’s the price of living in a democracy.
