In the current economic environment, the incentives that can be obtained by developers or prospective purchasers of real estate often can “make or break” the deal. The experience of the attorneys of Thomson Walker in analyzing, applying for, negotiating, and securing financial and tax incentives for developers in the Midwest allows us to assist as business advisors as well as attorneys. We have significant experience helping clients form and implement Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Districts, Transportation Development Districts (TDD), Community Improvement Districts (CID), Chapter 353 incentives, and a variety of other available incentive arrangements depending on the governing jurisdiction. Our strength lies in our understanding of the incentives available and our ability to work closely with governmental bodies to negotiate and secure the appropriate incentives. Our work in this area has been particularly strong in Kansas City, Missouri and the surrounding suburbs.
