Tax Incremental District

A Tax Incremental District (TID) is a contiguous geographical area within a municipality that consists solely of whole property units assessed for general property tax purposes.  A TID does not include railroad rights of way, rivers or highways, or wetlands under state law, (sec. 23.32, Wis. Stats.).  An area is identified as a TID for a certain type of development where projects are identified to encourage and facilitate the desired development.
