Requirements

Decrement Determination Examples

Example 1: TID created with a base value = $49,621,600
YearEqualized ValueCalculation ChangeDecline
201744,595,00044,595,000 - 49,621,600 = -5,026,200 / 49,621,600 =10.13%
201844,595,00044,595,000 - 49,621,600 = -5,026,200 / 49,621,600 =10.13%
Value decreased by 10 percent and was 10 percent lower for two consecutive years
TID qualifies for a redetermination — new base value is $44,595,000

Example 2: TID created with a base value = $8,113,400
YearEqualized ValueCalculation ChangeDecline
20176,513,8006,513,800 - 8,113,400 = -1,599,600 / 8,113,400 =19.72%
20186,852,6006,852,600 - 8,113,400 = -1,260,800 / 8,113,400 =15.54%
Value decreased by 10 percent for two consecutive years and met the requirement, even though the TID value increased from 2017 to 2018
TID qualifies for a redetermination — new base value is $6,852,600

Example 3: TID created with a base value = $56,813,200
YearEqualized ValueCalculation ChangeDecline
201753,843,10053,843,100 - 56,813,200 = -2,970,100 / 56,813,200 =5.23%
201849,582,60049,582,600 - 56,813,200 = - 7,230,600 / 56,813,200 =12.73%
TID does not qualify for a redetermination because 2017 TID value had only a 5 percent decline
If 2019 results in a decline of at least 10 percent, the TID would qualify for a base redetermination
