  2. Document from certified appraisers, which includes:
    1. Appraisal showing the current fair market value of the new TID's taxable property
    2. Second appraisal showing the fair market value of the taxable property being subtracted from the existing TID
  3. Fair market value of the property that is subtracted equals or exceeds the fair market value of the new TID
  4. No other TID was created under sec. 66.1105 (17), Wis. Stats.
