Tax Incremental District (TID) Residential Incentive Program

The City of Merrill offers incentives for newly constructed single-family homes or duplexes built on privately-owned lots within a tax incremental district or within a 1/2 mile of a TID boundary. 

Those who apply for the TID Residential Incentive Program may receive up to 5 percent of the preliminary assessment valuation (or a maximum of $10,000) for newly constructed residential homes or duplexes.

If approved, applicants will be paid within 30 after an Occupancy Permit has been issued by the City of Merrill Building Inspector and after preliminary assessment valuation by the City of Merrill Assessor.
