Tax Increment Financing Boards

Texas Tax Code Chapter 311 gives Cities the authority to create these special districts, one of the most effective key economic development tools in the State. The City of Garland has three tax increment financing (TIF) districts to promote the development and redevelopment of the following key geographic areas: Downtown and the area around the Forest-Jupiter Light Rail Station, Interstate-30 Corridor, and Tax Increment Financing Zone 3.
