Madison County Approved TIF for Dealership in Ridgeland, MS
Madison County has approved the Sunnybrook automotive TIF (tax increment financing), which will allow a Jaguar, Audi and Land Rover car dealerships to come to Ridgeland. With the county pledging 25 percent of the $33,000, approximately $8,250 every year will go toward retiring the debt, amounting to a total of approximately $123,750 from the county at the end of the 15-year bond life.

Prospect Heights, IL Hands $50k in TIF Funds to Sports Bar for Expansion
The sports bar is in the city's Palatine Road/Milwaukee Avenue TIF district. City officials last week handed over the final payment -- $50,391.01 -- of $500,000 in tax increment financing to Player's Pub and Grill to reimburse the establishment at River Road and Milwaukee Avenue for the final touches of its makeover.

Baltimore County Bill Would Allow Tradepoint Atlantic to Seek Public Financing Help
The company commissioned an economic study from Sage Policy Group that recommended a TIF as a way to help pay for at least part of the estimated $200 million needed for roads, bridges, utilities, stormwater management systems, rail upgrades and port improvements.

Cedar Rapids, IA Looks to Subsidize Ramp in 'Over-Parked' MedQuarter
Cedar Rapids taxpayers are being asked to help underwrite a 450-stall parking ramp for an expansion of Physicians' Clinic of Iowa in an area a 2013 study said is flush with parking — but that, officials say, is inconvenient for this project. Cedar Rapids would pay $8.27 million of the $9.5 million parking ramp cost through bond proceeds, which would be repaid over time by increased taxes generated from TIF.
