Certification Request Dates and Certification Dates

A TIF district’s certification request date (CRD) is as important as its certification date (CD). Various provisions of the TIF Act are tied to one or the other.

The CRD is the postmark date or the date of hand delivery of the request for certification to the county. For requests made by electronic transmission, including fax and e-mail, the CRD is the date of transmission. An authority should retain documentation to substantiate this date.

The CD is the actual date on which the county auditor signed and dated the certification of the ONTC. The authority and the county should agree on the CRD and CD.
