About This Page

​You can find instructions, form, and Minnesota Department of Revenue-supplied values for the tax increase calculation under Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Fiscal Disparity Option A below. There is also separate information for the seven-county metropolitan area and the Iron Range area.

The Fiscal Disparities Program is a system for the partial sharing of commercial-industrial (C/I) property tax base among all jurisdictions within a geographic area. This promotes regional development and helps smaller (or poorer) communities provide the same services as larger ones without imposing disproportionately high taxes.

Minnesota currently has two fiscal disparities programs. The primary one was created in 1971 and operates in the seven counties of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. A smaller-scale version was created in 1995 and operates on the Iron Range in northern Minnesota.​ For more information, see the Auditor/Treasurer Manual, in particular, the section on Reporting Fiscal Disparity.
