Board of Education TIF Resolution

At the May 20 Board of Education meeting, the Board adopted a resolution regarding the impact of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) on school districts. 

ED-RED has developed a summary of information about TIFs and what they mean for school districts below. 

What is a TIF district?

A Tax Increment Finance District (TIF) is an urban development tool created to combat urban blight. 

How do TIF districts work?

TIF districts divert property tax revenue from local taxing bodies, i.e. school, park, and library districts, to developers as incentives to invest in the TIF area.

How do TIF's impact school districts?

The TIF freezes the property tax revenue available for taxing bodies at the time of the TIF's creation.
