Fiscal Analysis Tool

This tool is useful as a planning guide. It contains components that will be useful to cities or counties of any size; however, it may lack components that some larger cities or counties may desire. These counties or cities should use this as a template. The tool is created in Microsoft Excel and is left unlocked and completely changeable. Users with enough knowledge of Excel should feel free to customize this tool to fit their needs. Users are encouraged to spot check results to ensure accuracy. This is especially critical if the user makes changes.

This tool was designed in collaboration by the Florida Department of Community Affairs, Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, and Dr. James Nicholas. This version was completed on September 30, 2007.

The Fiscal Tool utilizes colors and hyperlinks in order to assist the user in working with the tool. Cells with a red background and a white font color should be filled out by the user and are thought of as changeable cells. Some of the cells are filled out by the model and will not need to be changed, but still should be reviewed. Notes, Instructions, and Tips are highlighted in a blue font. Hyperlinks are placed at the top of each page and help the user navigate through the pages.
