Review of Rockford, Illinois


Property. taxes
Star Rating - 3/13/2016
We are planning on moving. This city is raping its citizens on property taxes and they are not getting anything for it. There has to be corruption going on if they have to keep raising taxes to cover their tracks. Do your homework on other cities, $ 150,000 house in Rockford property taxes= $ 6,000. Same house cost in a major city like Nashvile or Las Vegas taxes are $,1000 You can't afford to stay in this dead city I recommend all young people to leave.

It's not property taxes in Rockford alone. The state relies on property taxes to fund the schools. The system needs to change. I'll be staying to try to help make that change. Congratulations and best wishes on your move.
