Memphis, TN


The Center City Revenue Finance Corporation (CCRFC) and the Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC) are searching for an economic development consultant to conduct a review of the Downtown Payment In Lieu Of Taxes (PILOT) program. The main purpose of this review is to evaluate whether the current PILOT program is providing the public benefits it was designed to deliver, and to recommend policy changes if necessary.


This review will help DMC Staff & the CCRFC Board answer the following key questions:

  1. Is the CCRFC PILOT program delivering the desired results of growing the tax base and helping projects happen that couldn't otherwise?
  2. Can the But-For Test be formalized to provide clearer guidelines for financial analysis to aid staff review and create a more predictable process for developers?
  3. Are there any other policy changes that should be considered to maximize the public benefit of this vital economic development tool?
