Tax Increment Financing

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is made available for certain development projects to induce positive redevelopment within MDHA Redevelopment Districts. Because tax increment capacity is limited within each district, only the more publicly-beneficial developments are likely to be offered TIF. Additional consideration is given to projects with public open space greenspace and other sustainable activities. For more information on MDHA’s TIF Policy, the process and requirements of applying for TIF and priorities established for each district, please reference the documents below.

Tax Increment Financing Study and Formulating Committee

The Study and Formulating Committee studied how the Metropolitan Government utilizes tax increment financing and formulated recommendations for its implementation in a more transparent, equitable, effective and understandable manner. Such study assessed (i) how tax increment financing is awarded, (ii) the strengths and weaknesses of how tax increment financing is currently awarded, (iii) whether alternative lawful approaches exist for structuring tax increment financing awards, and (iv) whether methods for awarding tax increment financing should be revised following the emergence of transit-oriented redevelopment districts and other developments.
