BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

ARTICLE 1

INDIVIDUAL INCOME AND CORPORATE FRANCHISE TAXES

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 289A.08, subdivision 7, is amended to read:


Subd. 7.

Composite income tax returns for nonresident partners, shareholders, and
beneficiaries.

(a) The commissioner may allow a partnership with nonresident partners to
file a composite return and to pay the tax on behalf of nonresident partners who have no
other Minnesota source income. This composite return must include the names, addresses,
Social Security numbers, income allocation, and tax liability for the nonresident partners
electing to be covered by the composite return.

(b) The computation of a partner's tax liability must be determined by multiplying the
income allocated to that partner by the highest rate used to determine the tax liability for
individuals under section 290.06, subdivision 2c. Nonbusiness deductions, standard
deductions, or personal exemptions are not allowed.

(c) The partnership must submit a request to use this composite return filing method for
nonresident partners. The requesting partnership must file a composite return in the form
prescribed by the commissioner of revenue. The filing of a composite return is considered
a request to use the composite return filing method.

(d) The electing partner must not have any Minnesota source income other than the
income from the partnership, other electing partnerships, and other qualifying entities
electing to file and pay the pass-through entity tax under subdivision 7a. If it is determined
that the electing partner has other Minnesota source income, the inclusion of the income
and tax liability for that partner under this provision will not constitute a return to satisfy
the requirements of subdivision 1. The tax paid for the individual as part of the composite
return is allowed as a payment of the tax by the individual on the date on which the composite
return payment was made. If the electing nonresident partner has no other Minnesota source
income, filing of the composite return is a return for purposes of subdivision 1.

(e) This subdivision does not negate the requirement that an individual pay estimated
tax if the individual's liability would exceed the requirements set forth in section 289A.25.
The individual's liability to pay estimated tax is, however, satisfied when the partnership
pays composite estimated tax in the manner prescribed in section 289A.25.

(f) If an electing partner's share of the partnership's gross income from Minnesota sources
is less than the filing requirements for a nonresident under this subdivision, the tax liability
is zero. However, a statement showing the partner's share of gross income must be included
as part of the composite return.

(g) The election provided in this subdivision is only available to a partner who has no
other Minnesota source income and who is either (1) a full-year nonresident individual or
(2) a trust or estate that does not claim a deduction under either section 651 or 661 of the
Internal Revenue Code.

(h) A corporation defined in section 290.9725 and its nonresident shareholders may
make an election under this paragraph. The provisions covering the partnership apply to
the corporation and the provisions applying to the partner apply to the shareholder.

(i) Estates and trusts distributing current income only and the nonresident individual
beneficiaries of the estates or trusts may make an election under this paragraph. The
provisions covering the partnership apply to the estate or trust. The provisions applying to
the partner apply to the beneficiary.

(j) For the purposes of this subdivision, "income" deleted text beginmeans the partner's share of federal
adjusted gross income from the partnership modified by the additions provided in section
290.0131, subdivisions 8 to 10, 16, and 17, and the subtractions provided in: (1) section
290.0132, subdivisions 9, 27, and 28, to the extent the amount is assignable or allocable to
Minnesota under section 290.17; and (2) section 290.0132, subdivision 14. The subtraction
allowed under section 290.0132, subdivision 9, is only allowed on the composite tax
computation to the extent the electing partner would have been allowed the subtraction.

Sec. 2.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 289A.08, subdivision 7a, is amended to read:


Subd. 7a.

Pass-through entity tax.

(a) For the purposes of this subdivision, the following
terms have the meanings given:

(1) "income" has the meaning given in deleted text beginsubdivision 7, paragraph (j), modified by the
addition provided in section 290.0131, subdivision 5, and the subtraction provided in section
290.0132, subdivision 3, except that the provisions that apply to a partnership apply to a
qualifying entity and the provisions that apply to a partner apply to a qualifying owner. The
income of both a resident and nonresident qualifying owner is allocated and assigned to
this state as provided for nonresident partners and shareholders under sections 290.17,
290.191, and 290.20;
deleted text endnew text begin section 290.01, subdivision 19, paragraph (i);
new text end

(2) "qualifying entity" means a partnership, limited liability companynew text begin taxed as a
partnership or S corporation
new text end, or S corporation including a qualified subchapter S subsidiary
organized under section 1361(b)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code. Qualifying entity does
not include a partnership, limited liability company, or corporation that has a partnership,
limited liability company other than a disregarded entity, or corporation as a partner, member,
or shareholder; and

(3) "qualifying owner" means:

(i) a resident or nonresident individual or estate that is a partner, member, or shareholder
of a qualifying entity; or

(ii) a resident or nonresident trust that is a shareholder of a qualifying entity that is an
S corporation.

(b) For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2020, in which the taxes of a
qualifying owner are limited under section 164(b)(6)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code, a
qualifying entity may elect to file a return and pay the pass-through entity tax imposed under
paragraph (c). The election:

(1) must be made on or before the due date or extended due date of the qualifying entity's
pass-through entity tax return;

(2) may only be made by qualifying owners who collectively hold more than a 50 percent
ownership interest in the qualifying entity;

(3) is binding on all qualifying owners who have an ownership interest in the qualifying
entity; and

(4) once made is irrevocable for the taxable year.

(c) Subject to the election in paragraph (b), a pass-through entity tax is imposed on a
qualifying entity in an amount equal to the sum of the tax liability of each qualifying owner.

(d) The amount of a qualifying owner's tax liability under paragraph (c) is the amount
of the qualifying owner's income multiplied by the highest tax rate for individuals under
section 290.06, subdivision 2c. When making this determination:

(1) nonbusiness deductions, standard deductions, or personal exemptions are not allowed;
and

(2) a credit or deduction is allowed only to the extent allowed to the qualifying owner.

(e) The amount of each credit and deduction used to determine a qualifying owner's tax
liability under paragraph (d) must also be used to determine that qualifying owner's income
tax liability under chapter 290.

(f) This subdivision does not negate the requirement that a qualifying owner pay estimated
tax if the qualifying owner's tax liability would exceed the requirements set forth in section
289A.25. The qualifying owner's liability to pay estimated tax on the qualifying owner's
tax liability as determined under paragraph (d) is, however, satisfied when the qualifying
entity pays estimated tax in the manner prescribed in section 289A.25 for composite estimated
tax.

(g) A qualifying owner's adjusted basis in the interest in the qualifying entity, and the
treatment of distributions, is determined as if the election to pay the pass-through entity tax
under paragraph (b) is not made.

(h) To the extent not inconsistent with this subdivision, for purposes of this chapter, a
pass-through entity tax return must be treated as a composite return and a qualifying entity
filing a pass-through entity tax return must be treated as a partnership filing a composite
return.

(i) The provisions of subdivision 17 apply to the election to pay the pass-through entity
tax under this subdivision.

(j) If a nonresident qualifying owner of a qualifying entity making the election to file
and pay the tax under this subdivision has no other Minnesota source income, filing of the
pass-through entity tax return is a return for purposes of subdivision 1, provided that the
nonresident qualifying owner must not have any Minnesota source income other than the
income from the qualifying entity, other electing qualifying entities, and other partnerships
electing to file a composite return under subdivision 7. If it is determined that the nonresident
qualifying owner has other Minnesota source income, the inclusion of the income and tax
liability for that owner under this provision will not constitute a return to satisfy the
requirements of subdivision 1. The tax paid for the qualifying owner as part of the
pass-through entity tax return is allowed as a payment of the tax by the qualifying owner
on the date on which the pass-through entity tax return payment was made.

new text begin (k) Once a credit is claimed by a qualifying owner under section 290.06, subdivision
40, the qualifying entity cannot receive a refund for tax paid under this subdivision for any
amounts claimed under that section by the qualifying owners. Once a credit is claimed under
section 290.06, subdivision 40, any refund must be claimed in conjunction with a return
filed by the qualifying owner.

Sec. 6.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 290.06, subdivision 22, is amended to read:


Subd. 22.

Credit for taxes paid to another state.

(a) A taxpayer who is liable for taxes
based on net income to another state, as provided in paragraphs (b) through (f), upon income
allocated or apportioned to Minnesota, is entitled to a credit for the tax paid to another state
if the tax is actually paid in the taxable year or a subsequent taxable year. A taxpayer who
is a resident of this state pursuant to section 290.01, subdivision 7, paragraph (b), and who
is subject to income tax as a resident in the state of the individual's domicile is not allowed
this credit unless the state of domicile does not allow a similar credit.

(b) For an individual, estate, or trust, the credit is determined by multiplying the tax
payable under this chapter by the ratio derived by dividing the income subject to tax in the
other state that is also subject to tax in Minnesota while a resident of Minnesota by the
taxpayer's federal adjusted gross income, as defined in section 62 of the Internal Revenue
Code, modified by the addition required by section 290.0131, subdivision 2, and the
subtraction allowed by section 290.0132, subdivision 2, to the extent the income is allocated
or assigned to Minnesota under sections 290.081 and 290.17.

(c) If the taxpayer is an athletic team that apportions all of its income under section
290.17, subdivision 5, the credit is determined by multiplying the tax payable under this
chapter by the ratio derived from dividing the total net income subject to tax in the other
state by the taxpayer's Minnesota taxable income.

(d)(1) The credit determined under paragraph (b) or (c) shall not exceed the amount of
tax so paid to the other state on the gross income earned within the other state subject to
tax under this chapter; and

(2) the allowance of the credit does not reduce the taxes paid under this chapter to an
amount less than what would be assessed if the gross income earned within the other state
were excluded from taxable net income.

(e) In the case of the tax assessed on a lump-sum distribution under section 290.032, the
credit allowed under paragraph (a) is the tax assessed by the other state on the lump-sum
distribution that is also subject to tax under section 290.032, and shall not exceed the tax
assessed under section 290.032. To the extent the total lump-sum distribution defined in
section 290.032, subdivision 1, includes lump-sum distributions received in prior years or
is all or in part an annuity contract, the reduction to the tax on the lump-sum distribution
allowed under section 290.032, subdivision 2, includes tax paid to another state that is
properly apportioned to that distribution.

(f) If a Minnesota resident reported an item of income to Minnesota and is assessed tax
in such other state on that same income after the Minnesota statute of limitations has expired,
the taxpayer shall receive a credit for that year under paragraph (a), notwithstanding any
statute of limitations to the contrary. The claim for the credit must be submitted within one
year from the date the taxes were paid to the other state. The taxpayer must submit sufficient
proof to show entitlement to a credit.

(g) For the purposes of this subdivision, a resident shareholder of a corporation treated
as an "S" corporation under section 290.9725, must be considered to have paid a tax imposed
on the shareholder in an amount equal to the shareholder's pro rata share of any net income
tax paid by the S corporation to another state. For the purposes of the preceding sentence,
the term "net income tax" means any tax imposed on or measured by a corporation's net
income.

(h) For the purposes of this subdivision, a resident partner of an entity taxed as a
partnership under the Internal Revenue Code must be considered to have paid a tax imposed
on the partner in an amount equal to the partner's pro rata share of any net income tax paid
by the partnership to another state. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the term "net
income" tax means any tax imposed on or measured by a partnership's net income. For
purposes of this paragraph, "partnership" includes a limited liability company and "partner"
includes a member of a limited liability company.

(i) For the purposes of this subdivision, "another state":

(1) includes:

(i) the District of Columbia; and

(ii) a province or territory of Canada; but

(2) excludes Puerto Rico and the several territories organized by Congress.

(j) The limitations on the credit in paragraphs (b), (c), and (d), are imposed on a state
by state basis.

(k) For a tax imposed by a province or territory of Canada, the tax for purposes of this
subdivision is the excess of the tax over the amount of the foreign tax credit allowed under
section 27 of the Internal Revenue Code. In determining the amount of the foreign tax credit
allowed, the net income taxes imposed by Canada on the income are deducted first. Any
remaining amount of the allowable foreign tax credit reduces the provincial or territorial
tax that qualifies for the credit under this subdivision.

(l)(1) The credit allowed to a qualifying individual under this section for tax paid to a
qualifying state equals the credit calculated under paragraphs (b) and (d), plus the amount
calculated by multiplying:

(i) the difference between the preliminary credit and the credit calculated under paragraphs
(b) and (d), by

(ii) the ratio derived by dividing the income subject to tax in the qualifying state that
consists of compensation for performance of personal or professional services by the total
amount of income subject to tax in the qualifying state.

(2) If the amount of the credit that a qualifying individual is eligible to receive under
clause (1) for tax paid to a qualifying state exceeds the tax due under this chapter before
the application of the credit calculated under clause (1), the commissioner shall refund the
excess to the qualifying individual. An amount sufficient to pay the refunds required by this
subdivision is appropriated to the commissioner from the general fund.

(3) For purposes of this paragraph, "preliminary credit" means the credit that a qualifying
individual is eligible to receive under paragraphs (b) and (d) for tax paid to a qualifying
state without regard to the limitation in paragraph (d), clause (2); "qualifying individual"
means a Minnesota resident under section 290.01, subdivision 7, paragraph (a), who received
compensation during the taxable year for the performance of personal or professional services
within a qualifying state; and "qualifying state" means a state with which an agreement
under section 290.081 is not in effect for the taxable year but was in effect for a taxable
year beginning before January 1, 2010.

new text begin (m) For purposes of this subdivision, a resident sole member of a disregarded limited
liability company must be considered to have paid a tax imposed on the sole member in an
amount equal to the net income tax paid by the disregarded limited liability company to
another state. For the purposes of this paragraph, the term "disregarded limited liability
company" means a limited liability company that is disregarded as an entity separate from
its owner as defined in Code of Federal Regulations, title 26, section 301.7701, and "net
income tax" means any tax imposed on or measured by a disregarded limited liability
company's net income.

Property taxes payable.

"Property taxes payable" means the property tax
exclusive of special assessments, penalties, and interest payable on a claimant's homestead
after deductions made under sections 273.135, 273.1384, 273.1391, 273.42, subdivision 2,
and any other state paid property tax credits in any calendar year, and after any refund
claimed and allowable under section 290A.04, subdivision 2h, that is first payable in the
year that the property tax is payable. In the case of a claimant who makes ground lease
payments, "property taxes payable" includes the amount of the payments directly attributable
to the property taxes assessed against the parcel on which the house is located. Regardless
of the limitations in section 280A(c)(5) of the Internal Revenue Code, "property taxes
payable" must be apportioned or reduced for the use of a portion of the claimant's homestead
for a business purpose if the claimant deducts any business depreciation expenses for the
use of a portion of the homestead or deducts expenses under section 280A of the Internal
Revenue Code for a business operated in the claimant's homestead. For homesteads which
are manufactured homes as defined in section 273.125, subdivision 8, including manufactured
homes located in a manufactured home community owned by a cooperative organized under
chapter 308A or 308B, and park trailers taxed as manufactured homes under section 168.012,
subdivision 9
, "property taxes payable" shall also include 17 percent of the gross rent paid
in the preceding year for the site on which the homestead is located. When a homestead is
owned by two or more persons as joint tenants or tenants in common, such tenants shall
determine between them which tenant may claim the property taxes payable on the
homestead. If they are unable to agree, the matter shall be referred to the commissioner of
revenue whose decision shall be final. Property taxes are considered payable in the year
prescribed by law for payment of the taxes.

In the case of a claim relating to "property taxes payable," the claimant must have owned
and occupied the homestead on January 2 of the year in which the tax is payable and (i) the
property must have been classified as homestead property pursuant to section 273.124, on
or before December deleted text begin15deleted text endnew text begin 31new text end of the assessment year to which the "property taxes payable"
relate; or (ii) the claimant must provide documentation from the local assessor that application

which the "property taxes payable" were payable and that the assessor has approved the
application.
