Tax Incremental Finance (TIF) (sec. 66.1105 and sec. 60.23, Wis. Stats.) Municipal Creation

To create a Tax Incremental District (TID), submit the completed forms and required information to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR). We use this information to establish the district's base value and to verify the municipality followed proper legal procedures.

Town TIDs created under state law (sec. 60.23, Wis. Stats.), have additional requirements that must be met:

  • In the year before the town adopts a resolution, the following two criteria must be met:
  • Sewer service is or will be provided before use or operation of any improvements

Due date/process

  • If the municipal resolution is adopted by September 30, the forms are due to DOR by October 31
  • DOR certifies base values after January 1 of the year following creation
  • Tax Incremental Financing Remittance Fee - after you notify DOR that your municipality created a TID, we will send you a bill through "My Tax Account"
