Deep Dive on TIFs & PILOTs



Tax Increment Financing (TIF) and Payment-in-Lieu-of-Tax (PILOT) are two of the most common economic development incentive tools used in Tennessee.  Tax Increment Financing is a public financing incentive used to promote economic development, including redevelopment based on the property tax increment within a designated TIF District. Payment-in-Lieu-of-Tax (PILOT) is also a popular incentive used to promote new development by providing property tax abatement to a project.

The Deep Dive on TIFs & PILOTs TCED elective will enable participants to learn step-by-step processes for these two key economic development 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 designed to share best practices and trends with Tennessee’s economic development practitioners, private industry leaders and elected officials.
