What Is a Tax Allocation District?

A TAD, sometimes called a TIF (tax increment financing) is a financing incentive tool in which bonds are issued to pay for infrastructure and other improvement in a designated area.

These bonds are repaid by increases in property values (and corresponding property ‘tax increments’) from that area.

It’s not an increase in property taxes, but rather a way to stimulate reinvestment in an area by financing needed infrastructure or improvements from future tax proceeds within a designated area.
