13 WREX to air special 3-part series about Rockford’s tax burden

ROCKFORD (WREX) — Starting Tuesday, 13 WREX will air a special digging deeper series that looks in to the tax burden for homeowners in Rockford.

The series starts Tuesday on 13 News at 10 with a story about the number of unpaid property taxes in Winnebago County. The county is $25 million in the red when it comes to collecting property taxes. We’re digging deeper in to the problem.

Meanwhile, hundreds of businesses in the county are fighting to lower the value of their buildings so they have to pay less. Tune in to 13 News at 10 on Wednesday for this story.

And to end the series, we tell you about how despite a push to lower their property values, businesses are still getting handed tax incentives to come here. Many times, that puts the burden back on you as a homeowner.

Tune in starting Tuesday for Delinquent: A 3-part Digging Deeper series.
