is a tool which has been used for redevelopment and community improvement projects throughout the United States for more than half a century. With federal and state sources for redevelopment generally less available, TIF has become an often-used financing mechanism for municipalities. Similar or related approaches are used elsewhere in the world. See for example, Value capture. TIF is a tool to use future gains in taxes to finance the current improvements that will create those gains. When a public project such as a road, school, or hazardous waste cleanup is carried out, there is an increase in the value of surrounding real ...

Toward a Coalition for TIF Reform in Missouri: How Tax Increment ...
TIFs are an abomination, and any entity that accepts a TIF does so at the expense our common good. From a municipal budgeting perspective, monies allocated for a TIF are no different than monies allocated for combating HIV (or, in the case of the St. Louis Health Department , monies that support the operations of the Archdiocese of St. Louis ). From a  libertarian ‘s perspective, TIFs distort the marketplace for real estate development, creating vast economic inefficiencies as local governments sanction winners and losers. If you are a Republican, you should give pause when considering that TIFs in St. Louis City function ... market research, surveys and trends
Election 2010: Live reaction
We are about to enter a period of extreme austerity with large scale cuts in public expenditure. As always it will be capital expenditure and especially transport and housing that will bear the brunt of such cuts. There will almost certainly be no new centrally government funded transport schemes in this Parliament and public sector housing provision will collapse once again. Those promoting public sector investment projects will need to demonstrate an even stronger economic and social case than ever, as well as being able to put together more innovative funding packages which are less dependent on up front public sector funds. ... market research, surveys and trends

Tucson Choices » 2008 » December
The subsidies mentioned in yesterday’s post about Denver were in the form of tax-increment financing (TIF). For those unfamiliar with the term, tax-increment financing is the principal method of funding urban renewal. An urban-renewal agency draws a line around an area to be renewed, and for the next twenty or so years all property taxes collected on any new improvements in that district — the “incremental” taxes — are used to subsidize the renewal program. Usually, the agency estimates future tax revenues and then sells bonds to be repaid by those revenues. The bond revenues might be used for infrastructure such as streets, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Visioning Group Starts with Trails
A visioning effort to identify common goals in the community and a focal point for community effort is continuing with the development of trails, a mini-master plan, and a proposed convention center emerging as priorities, among a diverse coalition of leadership groups in Billings.   With a press conference last week to underscore their commitment to developing trails in Billings, the Billings Area Chamber of Commerce is one of those groups involved in identifying what big project can be pushed forward that could make a difference in the promotion of the Billings economy and to improve amenities in the community.   At Earl Guss ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Go On, Smash It
The great TIF scam might turn out to be useful in a way no one—particularly the mayor—ever imagined. It might provide hundreds of millions of dollars in rainy-day relief to get Chicago through these hard economic times. I've described the program as a slush fund, with the mayor and his cronies lining up to gorge themselves. But maybe we should be thinking of it as a piggy bank. And after more than 20 years of stuffing more than $2 billion in property taxes into that piggy bank—which to all intent and purposes he controls—Mayor Daley has nearly $700 million socked away in about 160 bank accounts, one ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Ohio's Tax Increment Financing Program, CD-1559-06
Tax Increment Financing (TIF) provides local governments with a way to fund public infrastructure improvements (such as roadways, bridges, ditches, water, and sewer lines) that are associated with new development. TIF programs have been widely popular since states began authorizing their use in the 1950s. According to the Tax Increment Finance Coalition, 49 states have enabled local governments to designate TIF districts to finance public infrastructure in some manner or another. Local governments in Ohio are provided authority to redirect funds for such improvements through Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 5709.40-5709.43 for ...
