Multijurisdictional Tax Incremental Finance (TIF)
Base Year Packet

To create a Tax Incremental District (TID) you must submit a completed base year packet to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR). We use the submitted information to establish your district's base value and to verify you followed proper legal procedures.
