Tax Increment Financing

Welcome

Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is a special funding tool used by the City of San Antonio to promote public and private investment in areas where little to no private sector investment is currently taking place. A portion of collected taxes are contributed to a fund that is used to help revitalize a designated area of town called a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ). The funds are used to build and repair roads and infrastructure and rehabilitate historic facilities and existing vacant buildings.

Now a function of the Planning & Community Development Department, the TIF program has evolved since 1998 to ensure that TIF funds fully support the City's primary revitalization programs and initiatives.
