Tax Increment Financing (TIF)

Category: State Incentives, Grants and Loans


Tax Increment Financing(TIF) uses the increased property taxes that a new real estate development generates to finance costs of the development.  In Minnesota, TIF is used for two basic purposes:

  • To induce or cause a development or redevelopment that otherwise would not occur.
  • To finance public infrastructure (streets, sewer, water, or parking facilities) that are related to the development.
