TIF IllinoisSM brings together two firms with expertise in public and private partnerships specializing in the use of Tax Increment Financing and business incentive tools to:

  • Stimulate economic development
  • Enhance community vitality through identification of creative growth solutions
  • Relieve TIF-related administrative burdens

Our Clients find value in our:

  1. Coordinated legal support and ongoing consulting and administrative services that provide your city simplicity in creating and managing TIF’s.
  2. Easy to understand billings that keep your development expenses manageable and easy to understand.
  3. Innovative economic “problem solving” that generates unique solutions and new opportunities in ways you may not have considered.
  4. Responsiveness and consistent quality so that you can focus on the results rather than the details of the process or the statutory requirements.


Contact us, and we will discover together what projects are applicable to your community. Here are some examples of what we have delivered for other communities:

  1. Substantial increases in municipal revenues as a result of the Tax Increment Financing Districts. Our average community generated more than 880,000 of real estate tax increment last year.
  2. New business development (retail, commercial, industrial) and job creation that otherwise would not have been possible. Our TIF programs have attracted more than $2.5 billion of new private investment and more than 4,000 new jobs since 1986.
  3. Stabilized population and school enrollments where TIF has attracted families and residents to towns where population would have otherwise continued to decline.
