Tax Increment Financing (TIF)

The City of West Fargo offers Tax Increment Financing (TIF) in several designated areas throughout the city (called TIF districts). These districts allow the property taxes generated due to the increased valuation of the properties to be used to pay off qualifying special assessments and in some cases the purchase of property.

Those public improvements for the development district that are special assessed can include both local and regional infrastructure depending on the district. The tax increment exemptions will be granted over a period of time and depending on the number of years it takes for the property tax increments to cover the public improvement costs.

The program is offered through and administered by the City of West Fargo Economic Development office. For program eligibility requirements and further details, please contact the Economic Development Office.
