New TIF Book Just Published by the ABA

The American Bar Association just released its newest publication, entitled About Tax Increment Financing.  The book provides a comprehensive look at the use of TIF's throughout the country.  The first chapter begins with an overview of tax increment financing fundamentals. Other chapters survey the experience of different states with tax increment financing, in connection with urban redevelopment projects.  Ancel Glink partner David Silverman is the author of the chapter titled "Illinois: TIF and the City of Chicago."  The book is edited by David Callies and W. Andrew Gowder Jr.

Included in the chapters describing various state experiences with TIFS are the following topics:
  • the income stream tapped for the tax increment;
  • the form of long-term project financing, usually in the form of bonds;
  • the need for urban redevelopment as part of the TIF package;
  • the presence or need for a plan; and
  • the presence or need for public participation.
