    Indiana State Auditor Tera Klutz says all state tax rebate payments from the state’s budget surplus have been printed and mailed. Klutz says her office “completed printing on September 21 and sent the last batch of automatic taxpayer refund checks to the postal service on September 22.” She says "most Hoosiers who filed a 2020 tax return in 2021 should have received their automatic taxpayer refund via direct deposit or mailed check by now.” Klutz's office says more than 1.5 million checks with the $125 refund were mailed.

      A former suburban Chicago mayor in failing health is set to be released from federal prison just three months into a one-year sentence for taking $5,000 to help a red-light camera company. U.S. District Judge Thomas M. Durkin on Thursday ordered former Crestwood Mayor Louis Presta’s release from Federal Medical Center-Kentucky in Lexington. A petition from Presta’s lawyers said his already poor health had declined rapidly since reporting to prison in late June. Presta, who is in his early 70s, will be under home confinement supervised by federal probation officers for the remainder of his sentence and must repay $70,000 in restitution. Presta pleaded guilty last November to official misconduct and other crimes.
