Interstate Commuters' Taxes

— NPR's Cheryl Corley reports on a tax argument between Illinois and Indiana. The problem is that many Indiana residents commute to work in Illinois... Commuters had been allowed to file taxes in the state where they lived, and not where they worked. Illinois said that deal cost them 20-million dollars a year in lost taxes. The agreement broke down recently and Illinois wants Indiana to pay back half that money.
