Taxes & Incentives
Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) and the creation of a TIF District provides a means to facilitate and finance economic development related projects within a designated Economic Development allocation area.
Projects to Promote Growth
- Installation of critical infrastructure
- Assistance with land acquisition
- Special incentives to employers
Projects solely funded by the private sector would not likely be able to occur, but for the involvement of the Redevelopment Commission and the establishment of a TIF District for the proposed Allocation Area.
Utilities and Infrastructure
Additionally, we work to help provide guarantees on timelines by which infrastructure can be made available and it is essential. Infrastructure is considered a distinct advantage for Montgomery County as recent improvements have provided significant capacity for water and wastewater to serve future uses.
