Tuesday, April 27, 2004 11:47:52 PM - Monroe Ohio
A TIF (Tax Increment Financing) district is a financial instrument comprised of a parcel or designated parcels of property bundled in a manner that under certain circumstances enables townships, cities, and counties to divert property tax payments from their intended use for the purpose of financing certain projects authorized by law by directing payments to finance specified projects in lieu of paying taxes otherwise owed. A TIF diverts certain taxes otherwise owed to eligible taxing districts to fund community improvement projects designated by a township, county, or city.
