CHICAGO -- Polk County, Iowa, officials have warned that the growth of tax increment finance districts outside city limits could threaten the county's financial health.

James Koolhof, country manager, said officials intend to seek legislative changes in the state tax increment law to ensure that county finances are not harmed by creating the districts in unincorporated areas. Koolhof said he expected the issue to be discussed in the next session of the Iowa legislature, which begins Jan. 11.
