The joint review board may request that the department of revenue certify that a district meets the decline in value increment percentage described in this paragraph.
66.1105(4e)(b)1.1. Adoption of a resolution under par.

66.1105(4e)(d)3.b. b.

The request must be in writing and must specify which particular objective fact or item the members believe is incomplete or inaccurate. Not later than 10 working days after receiving a request that complies with the requirements of this subdivision, the department of revenue shall investigate the issues raised in the request and shall send its written response to the board.

The board shall request, but may not require, that the city resolve the problems in its proposal and resubmit the proposal to the board.

66.1105(4m)(c)1.c. c. Whether the benefits of the proposal outweigh the anticipated tax increments to be paid by the owners of property in the overlying taxing districts.
66.1105(4m)(c)2. 2. The board shall issue a written explanation describing why any proposal it rejects fails to meet one or more of the criteria specified in subd. 1.
