Johnstown Plaza Metropolitan District Public Improvement & Credit Public Improvement Fees

The Public Improvement Fee (PIF) and the Credit Public Improvement Fee (CPIF) are fees that are collected by retailers within the Johnstown Plaza Metropolitan District.  The fees are used to finance a portion of the cost of the public improvements in the Johnstown Plaza area.
 
The PIF is 2.5% and the CPIF is 2.0% and is added to all taxable transactions.  The PIF and CPIF are specifically fees and are NOT sales tax; therefore, the PIF and CPIF become a part of the overall cost of the sale and are subject to sales tax.  The Town of Johnstown has agreed to reduce the Town sales tax rate within this area from 3.0% to 1.0%.
