effectiveness in achieving their objectives, (3) their effect on
the fairness and equity of the distribution of the tax burden,
and (4) the public and private cost of administering tax
expenditure financed programs. This section is intended to
facilitate a regular review of the state and local tax
expenditure budget by the legislature by providing for the
preparation of a regular biennial tax expenditure budget.

installment payments or offers-in-compromise of tax liabilities,
the commissioner shall prescribe guidelines for employees of the
department to determine whether an offer-in-compromise or an
offer to make installment payments is adequate and should be
accepted to resolve a dispute. In prescribing the guidelines,
the commissioner shall develop and publish schedules of national
and local allowances designed to provide that taxpayers entering
into a compromise or payment agreement have an adequate means to
provide for basic living expenses. The guidelines must provide
that the taxpayer's ownership interest in a motor vehicle, to
the extent of the value allowed in section 550.37, will not be
considered as an asset; in the case of an offer related to a
joint tax liability of spouses, that value of two motor vehicles
must be excluded. The guidelines must provide that employees of
the department shall determine, on the basis of the facts and
circumstances of each taxpayer, whether the use of the schedules
is appropriate and that employees must not use the schedules to
the extent the use would result in the taxpayer not having
adequate means to provide for basic living expenses. The
guidelines must provide that:

the offer; and

information for verification of the liability; and

be based upon information available to the commissioner. It
must be made within the prescribed period of limitations for
assessing the underlying tax, or within one year after the date
of an order assessing underlying tax, whichever period expires

amount paid in excess of that person's share of the liability.
A claim for recovery of contribution may be made only in a
proceeding which is separate from, and cannot be joined or
consolidated with, an administrative or judicial proceeding or
investigation involving the commissioner's administration or
enforcement of this section. An order assessing liability under
this section against the person from whom contribution is being
sought is not a prerequisite for bringing an action for recovery
of contribution, nor is the issuance of an order binding on the
court in which the proceeding is brought. The court can
determine whether each person would be liable under this section
and the share of liability. The commissioner cannot be made a
party to any proceeding for recovery of contribution, nor is a
determination in such a proceeding binding on the commissioner
for the purpose of administering or enforcing this section. An
action for contribution arises when the liability under this
section is paid in full, or the liability of the person seeking
contribution has been determined by agreement between the
commissioner and such person and paid, and must be brought
within the time period prescribed in section 541.05.

new text begin Definitions. new text end

new text begin (a) The following terms used
in this section have the following meanings.
new text end

new text begin (b) "Successor" means a person who directly or indirectly
purchases, acquires, is gifted, or succeeds to the business or
stock of goods of any person quitting, selling, or otherwise
disposing of a business or stock of goods. Successor does not
include a personal representative or beneficiary of an estate, a
trustee in bankruptcy, a debtor in possession, a receiver, a
secured party, a mortgagee, an assignee of rents, or any other
lienholder.
new text end

new text begin (c) "Person" means an individual, partnership, corporation,
sole proprietorship, joint venture, limited liability company,
or any other type of business entity or association.
new text end

new text begin (d) "Withhold" means setting aside money or dealing with
the payment of consideration in a manner that denies a
transferring business the benefit of the transfer in an amount
equal to the sales and withholding tax liability of the
transferring business.
new text end

new text begin (e) "Purchase price" means the consideration paid or to be
paid for the transfer by the successor to the transferring
business, and includes amounts paid for tangible property or
intangibles such as leases, licenses, or goodwill. Purchase
price also includes debts assumed or forgiven by the successor,
or real or personal property conveyed or to be conveyed by the
successor to the transferring business.
new text end

new text begin (f) "Arm's-length transaction" means a transfer for
adequate consideration between independent parties both acting
in their own best interests. If the parties are related to each
other, a rebuttable presumption arises that the transaction is
not at arm's length.
new text end

new text begin (g) "Transfer" means every mode, direct or indirect,
absolute or conditional, voluntary or involuntary, of disposing
of or parting with a business or an interest in a business, or a
stock of goods, whether by gift or for consideration. Transfer
includes a change in the type of business entity or the name of
the business, where one business is discontinued and a new one
started. Transfer also includes the acquisition by a new
corporation of the assets of a prior business in exchange for
the stock of the new corporation. Transfer does not include an
assignment for the benefit of creditors, foreclosure or
enforcement of a mortgage, assignment of rents, security
interest or lien, sale or disposition in a bankruptcy
proceeding, or sale or disposition by a receiver.
new text end

new text begin (h) "Transfer in bulk" means a transfer, other than in the
ordinary course of the transferor's trade or business, of more
than one-half of all the property of a business at all locations
combined, as measured by the value of the property at the time
of the transfer.
new text end

new text begin Subd. 2. new text end

new text begin Bulk transfers; liability of successor; lien.
new text end

new text begin (a) Whenever a business transfers in bulk to a successor the
business assets, and an enforceable lien for unpaid sales and
withholding taxes has been filed against the business by the
commissioner under section 270C.63, at least 20 days before
taking possession of the assets or paying the purchase price,
the successor shall notify the commissioner of the transfer and
the terms and conditions related to it. The notice must include
the tax identification number of the transferring business. If
an agreement to transfer has been entered into, this notice
requirement only applies: (1) if a lien described under this
paragraph has been filed prior to the date of the agreement; or
(2) if the date of the transfer is more than 30 days after the
date of the agreement, and a lien described under this paragraph
is filed at least 30 days prior to the date of transfer.
new text end

new text begin (b) If the successor fails to give the notice required in
paragraph (a), the successor is liable for any unpaid sales and
withholding taxes, interest, and penalties due from the
transferring business to the extent of the purchase price. If
the successor provides the notice required in paragraph (a) and,
within 20 days after receipt of the notice, the commissioner
notifies the successor that tax liabilities exist in addition to
those included on the lien or there are sales and withholding
tax returns due but not filed, the successor is, in addition to
being liable for the amounts included on the lien, liable for
all other uncontested sales and withholding taxes, interest, and
penalties as stated in the commissioner's notice from the
transferring business to the extent of the purchase price if the
successor pays the purchase price or takes possession of the
assets without withholding and remitting the liability to the
commissioner. The successor is liable whether the purchase
price is paid or the assets are transferred prior to or after
notification from the commissioner. The commissioner may also
notify the successor that there are no sales or withholding tax
liabilities or returns due from the transferring business other
than the liabilities included on the lien, and of the current
balance due to satisfy the lien.
new text end

new text begin (c) If, based upon the information available, the
commissioner determines that a transfer was not at arm's length
or was a gift, the successor's liability under this section
equals the value of the assets transferred. For purposes of
imposing the liability, the value of the property transferred is
presumed, subject to rebuttal, to equal the unpaid sales and
withholding taxes, interest, and penalties of the transferring
business.
new text end

new text begin (d) In the case of a gift resulting in successor liability
under this section, return of the gifted property by the donee
to the donor releases the donee's successor liability.
new text end

new text begin (e) A successor who complies with the requirements of
paragraphs (a) and (b) is not liable for any assessments of
sales and withholding taxes of the transferring business made
after the commissioner provides notice to the successor under
paragraph (b), except for taxes assessed on returns filed to
comply with the notice. If the commissioner fails to provide
the notice and the 20-day period expires, the successor is not
liable for any sales and withholding taxes of the transferring
business other than those included on the lien.

new text begin Assessment abatement; review. new text end

new text begin The commissioner
may assess liability under this section within the time
prescribed for collecting the underlying sales and withholding
taxes, interest, and penalties. The assessment is presumed to
be valid, and the burden is upon the successor to show it is
incorrect or invalid. An order assessing successor liability is
reviewable administratively under section 270C.35 and is
appealable to Tax Court under chapter 271. The commissioner may
abate an assessment if the successor's failure to give the
notice required under this section is due to reasonable cause.
The procedural and appeal provisions under section 270C.34 apply
to abatement requests under this subdivision. Collection
remedies available against the transferring business are
available against the successor from the date of assessment of
successor liability.

payment occurs. The debt is, in the case of the personal
representative of the estate of a decedent and in the case of
any fiduciary, that of the individual in the individual's
official or fiduciary capacity only, unless the individual has

limitation for assessment against the preceding transferee, but
only if within 3-1/2 years after the expiration of the period of
limitation for assessment against the taxpayer. The tax may be
collected by action brought within one year after the expiration
of the period of limitation for the starting of an action
against the preceding transferee, but only if within four years
after the expiration of the period of limitation for bringing an
action against the taxpayer; except that if before the
expiration of the period of limitation for the assessment of the
liability of the transferee a court proceeding for the
collection of the tax or liability has been begun against the
taxpayer or last preceding transferee, liability of the
transferee expires one year after the return of execution in the
court proceeding and the period of limitation for collection by
action will expire one year after the liability is assessed.

to show it is incorrect or invalid. An order assessing
liability for failure to honor a levy is reviewable
