Tax Increment Financing (TIF)

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a financing technique that helps municipal governments stimulate redevelopment in a designated area. Using this financing tool, the City can reimburse developers for certain expenses using the property tax revenue that new development in the TIF district generates. Expenses eligible for reimbursement include

  • Architectural, engineering, legal, environmental, financial, planning, and other services
  • Property assembly costs, including acquisition of land, demolition of buildings and site preparation
  • Costs of rehabilitation, reconstruction or repair or remodeling of existing buildings, fixtures and leasehold improvements
  • Cost of financing during construction
  • A portion of the interest cost incurred by a developer related to the construction, renovation or rehabilitation of a redevelopment project

Reimbursement is approved by the City Council through a redevelopment agreement.
