To create a Tax Incremental District (TID), email the completed forms and required documents to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR). DOR uses this information to establish the district's base value and verify the municipality followed state law.

State law allows towns to use TIF only for specific agricultural, forest, manufacturing and tourism projects. For more information, review Eligible Projects for a Town TID.
