Developments unlikely to occur “But For” the creation of a TIF

TIF bonds possess varying structures based on the project’s geographical location, influenced by state-specific regulations and municipal “But For” clauses within TIF areas. Typically, TIF districts are large tracts of land containing multiple parcels, any of which a developer can target for new projects. Moving forward with a development on an included parcel integrates it into the broader TIF proceeds. Working with your municipality, developers can negotiate a single-site or project specificTIF bond tailored to their parcel’s plans, thereby dividing the larger TIF into a smaller unique bond.
