deriving income which has a taxable situs in this state regardless of whether the income is
exempt from taxation, that an employee of that employer is delinquent in a certain amount
with respect to any taxes, including penalties, interest, and costs. The commissioner can
proceed under this section only if the tax is uncontested or if the time for appeal of the tax
has expired. The commissioner shall not proceed under this section until the expiration of
30 days after mailing to the taxpayer, at the taxpayer's last known address, a written notice
of (1) the amount of taxes, interest, and penalties due from the taxpayer and demand for
their payment, and (2) the commissioner's intention to require additional withholding by
the taxpayer's employer pursuant to this section. The effect of the notice shall expire one

employer, the claim of the state of Minnesota shall have priority over any subsequent
garnishments or wage assignments. The commissioner may arrange between the employer
and the employee for withholding a portion of the total amount due the employee each pay
period, until the total amount shown by the notice plus accrued interest has been withheld.

(b) The "compensation due" any employee is defined in accordance with the
provisions of section 571.921. The maximum withholding allowed under this section for
any one pay period shall be decreased by any amounts payable pursuant to a garnishment
action with respect to which the employer was served prior to being served with the notice
of delinquency and any amounts covered by any irrevocable and previously effective
assignment of wages; the employer shall give notice to the commissioner of the amounts
and the facts relating to such assignments within ten days after the service of the notice of
delinquency on the form provided by the commissioner as noted in this section.

(i) On or before the 14th day of the month following the month in which the taxable
event occurred, the vendor must remit to the commissioner 90 percent of the estimated
liability for the month in which the taxable event occurred.

(ii) On or before the 20th day of the month in which the taxable event occurs, the
vendor must remit to the commissioner a prepayment for the month in which the taxable
event occurs equal to 67 percent of the liability for the previous month.

(iii) On or before the 20th day of the month following the month in which the taxable
event occurred, the vendor must pay any additional amount of tax not previously remitted
under either item (i) or (ii ) or, if the payment made under item (i) or (ii) was greater than
the vendor's liability for the month in which the taxable event occurred, the vendor may
take a credit against the next month's liability in a manner prescribed by the commissioner.

(iv) Once the vendor first pays under either item (i) or (ii), the vendor is required to
continue to make payments in the same manner, as long as the vendor continues having a
liability of $120,000 or more during the most recent fiscal year ending June 30.

(v) Notwithstanding items (i), (ii), and (iv), if a vendor fails to make the required
payment in the first month that the vendor is required to make a payment under either item
(i) or (ii), then the vendor is deemed to have elected to pay under item (ii) and must make
subsequent monthly payments in the manner provided in item (ii).

(vi) For vendors making an accelerated payment under item (ii), for the first month
that the vendor is required to make the accelerated payment, on the 20th of that month, the

paid with the chapter 297A taxes, then the payment of all the liabilities on the return must
be accelerated as provided in this subdivision.

(f) At the start of the first calendar quarter at least 90 days after the cash flow account
established in section 16A.152, subdivision 1, and the budget reserve account established in
section 16A.152, subdivision 1a, reach the amounts listed in section 16A.152, subdivision
2
