Environmental Remediation Tax Incremental Finance (TIF) (Sec. 66.1106, Wis. Stats.)
Base Year Packet

The Environmental Remediation Tax Incremental Finance Law (ER TIF) was approved by the Wisconsin Legislature in 1997 as a financial tool political subdivisions could use to pay for specific environmental remediation expenses. See the Department of Natural Resources Remediation and Redevelopment Program website for additional information.

The Department of Revenue (DOR) uses the information on the forms to establish the district's base value and to verify that proper legal procedures were followed. When completing these forms, use consistent identification numbers on the forms and on the required maps. These forms must be completed and submitted to DOR on or before December 31 of the creation year. The process of certifying base values does not begin until after January 1 of the year following creation.
