Democrat Duckworth claimed two homeowner exemptions

Democrat Duckworth claimed two homeowner exemptions

That's according to a Daily Herald investigation.

A suburban congressional candidate improperly claimed two homeowner exemptions at once over a period of several years, a Daily Herald investigation has found.

But after the Daily Herald pointed out the error, Tammy Duckworth says she paid $1,928 in taxes she saved because of the extra exemption, plus an added $612 in penalties.

A spokesman said Duckworth was unaware she was claiming two exemptions between 2007 and 2010.
