Distressed/Severely Distressed TID
An active Tax Incremental District (TID) may be designated as distressed or severely distressed in specific cases and on or before September 30, 2015.
Distressed vs. severely distressed
- Distressed - allows the municipality to extend a TID 10 years past the original termination date
- Severely distressed - allows a municipality to extend a TID up to 40 years from the creation date
- To become distressed/severely distressed, the TID must:
- Be created before October 1, 2008
- Not be amended after October 1, 2009
- Have projected TID increments that show the TID will not be able to pay project costs and debt within the normal life of the TID
- Use any increment that exceeds the TID's annual expenditures to retire the TID debt or establish a reserve fund that can only be used to retire the debt of the distressed or severely distressed TID
- Note: Severely Distressed TIDS only - must have an increment in any year that has declined at least 25% from the highest value increment
- Distressed/severely distressed TIDs may not:
- Make any additional expenditures after the original expenditure period ends
