Tax Increment Financing (TIF) and Payment-in-Lieu-of-Tax (PILOT) are two of the most common economic development public financing tools used in Tennessee. Tax Increment Financing is a public financing method used to promote redevelopment, infrastructure and other community improvement projects based on the property tax increment within a designated TIF District. Payment-in-Lieu-of-Tax (PILOT) is also a popular public financing method used to promote new development where a payment in lieu of tax is made to a government entity to compensate for some or all of the property tax revenue lost.
The Deep Dive on TIFs & PILOTs TCED Program elective will enable participants to learn step-by-step processes for these two key economic development financing tools. Case studies and group projects will allow for a fun, interactive session that will promote a better overall understanding of the mechanics of TIFs and PILOTs.
This elective is one of a series of economic development courses provided by the University of Tennessee Center for Industrial Services (UT CIS) designed to share best practices and trends with Tennessee’s economic development practitioners, private industry leaders and elected officials.
