Libertyville Sharing $2.9M in TIF Funds With Schools and Other Taxing Bodies
Nine local taxing bodies will get a cut of $2.9 million from a special financing district created to fund parking decks and other projects in downtown Libertyville. Libertyville received state approval to extend its TIF beyond the normal 23 years. That approval required the village to share 70% percent of the increment each year.
Deserve Plans Salt Lake Valley, UT, Operations Center
As an incentive, Deserve may earn up to 20% of the new state taxes it will pay over the five-year life of the agreement in the form of a Utah Legislature-authorized Economic Development Tax Increment Finance (EDTIF) tax credit. The GOED Board has approved a post-performance tax credit not to exceed $374,089. Each year that Deserve meets the criteria in its contract with the state, it will earn a portion of the total tax credit.
MO Senate Backs New Tax Break for Businesses
Missouri senators have given their approval for a new state break that could benefit business developments. The legislation would allow cities and counties to join together to create special development zones. Twenty-five percent of the state withholding taxes generated by new employees in those areas could be re-routed to help pay for infrastructure development costs.
County Letting East Butte Tax District Fade Away Next Year
County officials have decided to let a tax-increment district in upper East Butte expire, but more than $500,000 in remaining funds will likely be steered toward projects or street upgrades, sidewalks and other improvements before it sunsets next year.
The City of Durango Looks to Create New Economic Development Tool
The key financial tool that creation of an urban renewal authority would provide Durango is the ability to use tax increment financing, or TIF, that would devote any increased sales and property taxes generated by a URA project to that specific project, paying for things like utilities and roads needed as a project builds-out over time.
Monmouth City Council Approves $6.2M Housing Plan
The terms call for the development of 44 housing units over two years. Bergman will finance the surveying, engineering design, construction of water mains, sanitary sewer, surface water drainage, and Jackson Street road construction. The city, in turn, will establish a tax increment financing district to generate revenue to reimburse the developer for eligible expenses, including public infrastructure.
Chicago Reveals TIF Overhaul Plan
The mayor moves to tighten requirements on getting and spending tax-increment financing funds, to help poorer neighborhoods. She also delays some key decisions and loosens a blanket ban on new downtown TIF projects.
Alatus to Build City Hall/Apartment Combo
The Columbia Heights City Council approved plans for a $60 million project that will combine 265 market-rate apartments and 20,650 square feet of office and meeting space that will serve as the new city hall.
