The West Branch Building Incentive Program provides up to $5,000 in property tax rebates as well as reduced permit fees and free water and sewer hook-ups. Click here for the program brochure. The program was developed by a group of builders, realtors, bankers, and associated professionals who reside and work professionally in the West Branch Community. The program provides discounted building permits and free water and sewer hook-ups. After the homeowner receives an occupancy permit, that homeowner is eligible to receive a 100% rebate on the City of West Branch portion of the homeowner’s tax bill. The rebate is available for up to $5,000 or five years from the date of the occupancy permit, whichever comes first.
