Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT)

The federal Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) Program provides payments to local governments that contain certain federally-owned lands known as "entitlement lands". PILT payments are intended to help offset losses in property taxes due to nontaxable federal lands within municipal boundaries. The U.S. Department of Interior administers PILT payments to boroughs, and DCRA administers federal PILT payments to cities within the unorganized borough. Eligible applicants in the unorganized borough are notified of the administrative requirements by April 1st each year. To receive funding, an eligible municipality must submit a resolution to the department that requests the distribution and verifies the municipality meets all eligibility requirements. Distributions under the Payment in Lieu of Taxes Program are made beginning in July of each fiscal year.
