City/Village Tax Incremental Finance (TIF)
Accounting & Termination
In 2004, major TIF reforms were adopted by the Wisconsin Legislature. The changes expanded the ways TIF could be used and bolstered the level of oversight the state had regarding its use. These changes strengthen the reporting requirements and modified the forms needed for maintaining a tax incremental district (TID). This site details the specific accounting requirements including sample reports, and provides the necessary forms for TID Termination.
|Sample Annual Report||Sample of the TID Accounting Report required annually to overlying taxing jurisdictions annually by May 1st|
|Sample Audit Report||Sample Audit Report that are required at three times during the life of the Tax Increment District:
A TID terminates/dissolves depending upon the following:
- when the municipality has received aggregate tax increments in an amount equal to the aggregate of all project costs under the project plan and any amendments to the project plan,
- or the TID has reached its maximum life. Maximum life varies and is determined by the type of TID and resolution date.
- or the municipality chooses to dissolve the district early.
Upon termination or dissolution, the municipality shall give the Department of Revenue (DOR) written notice within 60 days of the termination resolution, by completing a PE-223 (below) and sending it along with a copy of the resolution to DOR at P.O. Box 8971, MS 6-97; Madison, WI 53708. This form establishes the date by which the PE-110 and Final Accounting Report will be submitted. Additionally, notification of the termination should also be sent to the County Property Lister, Municipal Assessor and the overlying taxing jurisdictions.
On or before the agreed upon submission date, the municipality shall electronically submit the PE-110 and the TID Final Accounting Excel spreadsheet.
Remember: Failure to submit the required termination forms or information within the timeframe agreed to by the municipality will cause DOR to deny certification of any additional tax incremental base.
Fill-in forms option: Please read the instructions first before using this option. This is not available for all the forms. This option will not electronically file your form.
