How does Tax Increment Affect Other Taxing Agencies?

Other taxing agencies lose part of the new property taxes generated in Redevelopment Project Areas, but they continue receiving their share of the base tax role. However, in blighted areas, the property values would not increase without redevelopment activities. Other taxing agencies benefit from increases in other, non-property tax revenues and revenues generated outside the project area as a direct result of Redevelopment activities, such as sales taxes, hotel room taxes, higher income taxes derived from job generation, and property taxes. Most school districts are fully compensated by the State for the loss of any property tax revenue due to Tax Increment.
