Agenda  |  Registration

The Montana Economic Developers Association (MEDA) is organizing a workshop to strengthen your understanding of Tax Increment Financing and how it works as a valuable tool for economic development in Montana.  The workshop will be held at the Northwestern Energy Building in Butte on October 24, 2017.

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a state authorized, locally driven funding mechanism that allows cities and counties to direct a portion of property tax dollars that accrue from new development, within a specifically designated district, to community and economic development activities.  As federal and state resources have declined, TIF remains as one of the few mechanisms that local governments can use to encourage investment.  The cost is $65 which includes lunch and materials.

This workshop will provide attendees with information on how TIF districts are established and governed.  Specific attention will also be given to:

  • The nuts and bolts of tax increment financing
  • 2017 Legislative changes to the Montana tax increment law
  • Best practices in tax increment financing
