The Homebuyer’s Property Tax Refund Program initiative encourages investment in Rockford neighborhoods by rebating property taxes for three years on residential properties.
The program offers purchasers of foreclosed or short-sale homes, as well as newly-built homes in the City of Rockford, a property tax refund for three years. The refund, issued at the end of each tax year in a lump sum, would cover up to 80 percent of the owner’s property tax bill. How does it work?

The City of Rockford water has launched a new Interactive Lead Service Line Identification map in order to help minimize our customers exposure to lead in water. This interactive map will help assist customers in identifying where lead service lines are located and provide residents and businesses with information regarding public and private water service lines. It is important that customers are aware of their service line material, so they can make informed decisions on minimizing their exposure to lead in water.
Customers can simply click on the water drop located within the interactive lead service identification map to obtain information about their service. The information provided in the map was obtained from historical data, record drawings, plumbing inspections and service installations obtained over the years.
