Tax Increment Financing Districts

A Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District is an area of the city that is designated for special development or redevelopment. As new homes and businesses are built in the TIF District, the growth in property tax revenues is set aside in a TIF Fund and reinvested in the district. There are two TIF Districts in North Richland Hills.

Tax Increment Financing District #1


TIF #1 was created in 1998 to help revitalize a 95 acre area off Boulevard 26 around the old Richland Plaza Shopping Center. Through the TIF Fund, significant public drainage improvements were made, which spurred private reinvestment and redevelopment of the area.

TIF #1 was expanded in 2009 to include a total of 392 acres along Boulevard 26, Rufe Snow Drive and Glenview Drive. Under the expansion plan, a portion of property taxes from the district is designated for intersection and utility improvements within the district.

The City of North Richland Hills, Birdville ISD, Tarrant County, Tarrant County College District and Tarrant County Hospital District contribute a portion of their property tax revenue from the TIF District to the TIF Fund for public improvements. The District is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from each of the participating entities.

The City of North Richland Hills, Tarrant County, Tarrant County College District and Tarrant County Hospital District contribute a portion of their property tax revenue from the TIF District to the TIF Fund for public improvements. The District is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from each of the participating entities.

In 2015, the TIF #2 boundaries were expanded to include a portion of the Tarrant County College Northeast Campus.
