Tax Incremental Financing (TIFs)

    The Colorado Property Rights Coalition studied the use of tax-incremental financing for the Arvada Urban Renewal project created in 1981 that lasted until early 2000.
Original URA

The retention of taxes by the urban renewal authority is here.
    The CPRC also looked at how all Jefferson County urban renewal projects affected the Jefferson County school district in 2009.
    For the year 2010, the CPRC looked at how tax-incremental financing affected both the Jefferson County school district and the library district. Also, for 2010, the CPRC studied the 5-county Metropolitan Denver area (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver and Jefferson counties). See it here.
    The 2011 results for Jefferson County school and library districts are here. And the results of the 2012 Jefferson County school and library districts  can be seen here.
