Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill increases the maximum life, the expenditure period, and the tax
increment allocation period for Tax Incremental Districts Number Three and Four
in the village of Lake Delton.
Under the current tax incremental financing program, a city or village may
create a TID in part of its territory to foster development under certain conditions.
Currently, towns and counties also have a limited ability to create a TID under
certain circumstances. Before a city or village may create a TID, several steps and
plans are required. These steps and plans include public hearings on the proposed
TID within specified time frames, preparation and adoption by the local planning
commission of a proposed project plan for the TID, approval of the proposed project
plan by the common council or village board, approval of the city's or village's

proposed TID by a joint review board that consists of members who represent the
overlying taxation districts, and adoption of a resolution by the common council or
village board that creates the TID as of a date provided in the resolution.
Also under current law, once a TID has been created, the Department of
Revenue calculates the “tax incremental base" value of the TID, which is the
equalized value of all taxable property within the TID at the time of its creation. If
the development in the TID increases the value of the property in the TID above the
base value, a “value increment" is created. That portion of taxes collected on the
value increment in excess of the base value is called a “tax increment." The tax
increment is placed in a special fund that may be used only to pay back the project
costs of the TID.
The project costs of a TID, which are initially incurred by the creating city or
village, include public works such as sewers, streets, and lighting systems; financing
costs; site preparation costs; and professional service costs. DOR authorizes the
allocation of the tax increments until the TID terminates or, generally, 20 years, 23
years, or 27 years after the TID is created, depending on the type of TID and the year
in which it was created. Also under current law, a city or village may not generally
make expenditures for project costs later than five years before the unextended
termination date of the TID. Under certain circumstances, the life of the TID, the
expenditure period, and the allocation period may be extended.
Under the bill, with regard to TID Number Three in the village of Lake Delton,
the expenditures for project costs may be made for up to 32 years after the TID was
created, DOR may allocate tax increments for up to 37 years after the TID's creation,
and the maximum life of the TID is extended for 17 years.
Also under the bill, with regard to TID Number Four in the village of Lake
Delton, the expenditures for project costs may be made for up to 32 years after the
TID was created, DOR may allocate tax increments for up to 37 years after the TID's
creation, and the maximum life of the TID is extended for 10 years.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
