Tax Incremental Districts for Qualifying Towns - Sen. Jerry Petrowski

by Larry Lee

Senator Jerry Petrowski (R-Marathon) introduced the bill that passed the Legislature allowing qualifying Towns to utilize Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) Districts to help develop businesses and job creation.  Currently, only cities and villages can use TIF districts.  Once signed by Governor Scott Walker, about 26 qualifying towns will have this tool available.
