Subdivision 1.

Requirement.

Except as otherwise provided in subdivision 5, 6, or 7,
whenever any real estate is sold for a consideration in excess of deleted text begin$1,000deleted text endnew text begin $3,000new text end, whether by
warranty deed, quitclaim deed, contract for deed or any other method of sale, the grantor,
grantee or the legal agent of either shall file a certificate of value with the county auditor
in the county in which the property is located when the deed or other document is presented
for recording. Contract for deeds are subject to recording under section 507.235, subdivision
1
. Value shall, in the case of any deed not a gift, be the amount of the full actual consideration
thereof, paid or to be paid, including the amount of any lien or liens assumed. The items
and value of personal property transferred with the real property must be listed and deducted
from the sale price. The certificate of value shall include the classification to which the
property belongs for the purpose of determining the fair market value of the property, and
shall include any proposed change in use of the property known to the person filing the
certificate that could change the classification of the property. The certificate shall include
financing terms and conditions of the sale which are necessary to determine the actual,
present value of the sale price for purposes of the sales ratio study. If the property is being
acquired as part of a like-kind exchange under section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code
of 1986, as amended through December 31, 2006, that must be indicated on the certificate.
The commissioner of revenue shall promulgate administrative rules specifying the financing
terms and conditions which must be included on the certificate. The certificate of value
must include the Social Security number or the federal employer identification number of
the grantors and grantees. However, a married person who is not an owner of record and
who is signing a conveyance instrument along with the person's spouse solely to release
and convey their marital interest, if any, in the real property being conveyed is not a grantor
for the purpose of the preceding sentence. A statement in the deed that is substantially in
the following form is sufficient to allow the county auditor to accept a certificate for filing
without the Social Security number of the named spouse: "(Name) claims no ownership
interest in the real property being conveyed and is executing this instrument solely to release
and convey a marital interest, if any, in that real property." The identification numbers of
the grantors and grantees are private data on individuals or nonpublic data as defined in
section 13.02, subdivisions 9 and 12, but, notwithstanding that section, the private or
nonpublic data may be disclosed to the commissioner of revenue for purposes of tax
administration. The information required to be shown on the certificate of value is limited
to the information required as of the date of the acknowledgment on the deed or other
document to be recorded.

(b) a plat of any townsite or addition thereto,

(c) a survey required pursuant to section 508.47,

is presented to the county auditor for transfer, the auditor shall ascertain from the records
if there be taxes delinquent upon the land described therein, or if it has been sold for taxes.
An assignment of a sheriff's or referee's certificate of sale, when the certificate of sale
describes real estate, and certificates of redemption from mortgage or lien foreclosure sales,
when the certificate of redemption encompasses real estate and is issued to a junior creditor,
are considered instruments conveying land for the purposes of this section and section
272.121. If there are taxes delinquent, the auditor shall certify to the same; and upon payment
of such taxesnew text begin or confession of judgment under section 279.37 stating that delinquent taxes

no taxes are delinquent, shall transfer the land upon the books of the auditor's office, and
note upon the instrument, over official signature, the words, "no delinquent taxes and transfer
entered," or, if the land described has been sold or assigned to an actual purchaser for taxes,
the words "paid by sale of land described within;" and, unless such statement is made upon
such instrument, the county recorder or the registrar of titles shall refuse to receive or record
the same; provided, that sheriff's or referees' certificates of sale on execution or foreclosure
of a lien or mortgage, certificates of redemption from mortgage or lien foreclosure sales
issued to the redeeming mortgagor or lienee, deeds of distribution made by a personal
representative in probate proceedings, transfer on death deeds under section 507.071, decrees
and judgments, receivers receipts, patents, and copies of town or statutory city plats, in case
the original plat filed in the office of the county recorder has been lost or destroyed, and
the instruments releasing, removing and discharging reversionary and forfeiture provisions
affecting title to land and instruments releasing, removing or discharging easement rights
in land or building or other restrictions, may be recorded without such certificate; and,
provided that instruments conveying land and, as appurtenant thereto an easement over
adjacent tract or tracts of land, may be recorded without such certificate as to the land
covered by such easement; and provided further, that any instrument granting an easement
made in favor of any public utility or pipe line for conveying gas, liquids or solids in
suspension, in the nature of a right-of-way over, along, across or under a tract of land may
be recorded without such certificate as to the land covered by such easement. Documents
governing homeowners associations of condominiums, townhouses, common interest
ownership communities, and other planned unit developments may be recorded without the
auditor's certificate to the extent provided in section 515B.1-116(e).

A deed of distribution made by a personal representative in a probate proceeding, a
decree, or a judgment that conveys land shall be presented to the county auditor, who shall
transfer the land upon the books of the auditor's office and note upon the instrument, over
official signature, the words, "transfer entered", and the instrument may then be recorded.
A decree or judgment that affects title to land but does not convey land may be recorded
without presentation to the auditor.

A violation of this section by the county recorder or the registrar of titles shall be a gross
misdemeanor, and, in addition to the punishment therefor, the recorder or registrar shall be
liable to the grantee of any instrument so recorded for the amount of any damages sustained.

When, as a condition to permitting the recording of deed or other instrument affecting
the title to real estate previously forfeited to the state under the provisions of sections 281.16
to 281.25, county officials, after such real estate has been purchased or repurchased, have
required the payment of taxes erroneously assumed to have accrued against such real estate
after forfeiture and before the date of purchase or repurchase, the sum required to be so paid
shall be refunded to the persons entitled thereto out of moneys in the funds in which the
sum so paid was placed. Delinquent taxes are those taxes deemed delinquent under section
279.02.

must also be assessed class 2a.

(e) Agricultural land and buildings that were class 2a homestead property under section

agricultural land remain uninhabited.

(f) Agricultural land and buildings that were class 2a homestead property under section
273.13, subdivision 23, paragraph (a), for the 1998 assessment shall remain classified

Sec. 25.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 273.13, subdivision 23, is amended to read:


Subd. 23.

Class 2.

(a) An agricultural homestead consists of class 2a agricultural land
that is homesteaded, along with any class 2b rural vacant land that is contiguous to the class
2a land under the same ownership. The market value of the house and garage and immediately
surrounding one acre of land has the same classification rates as class 1a or 1b property
under subdivision 22. The value of the remaining land including improvements up to the
first tier valuation limit of agricultural homestead property has a classification rate of 0.5
percent of market value. The remaining property over the first tier has a classification rate
of one percent of market value. For purposes of this subdivision, the "first tier valuation
limit of agricultural homestead property" and "first tier" means the limit certified under
section 273.11, subdivision 23.

(b) Class 2a agricultural land consists of parcels of property, or portions thereof, that
are agricultural land and buildings. Class 2a property has a classification rate of one percent
of market value, unless it is part of an agricultural homestead under paragraph (a). Class 2a
property must also include any property that would otherwise be classified as 2b, but is
interspersed with class 2a property, including but not limited to sloughs, wooded wind
shelters, acreage abutting ditches, ravines, rock piles, land subject to a setback requirement,
and other similar land that is impractical for the assessor to value separately from the rest
of the property or that is unlikely to be able to be sold separately from the rest of the property.

An assessor may classify the part of a parcel described in this subdivision that is used
for agricultural purposes as class 2a and the remainder in the class appropriate to its use.

(c) Class 2b rural vacant land consists of parcels of property, or portions thereof, that
are unplatted real estate, rural in character and not used for agricultural purposes, including
land used for growing trees for timber, lumber, and wood and wood products, that is not
improved with a structure. The presence of a minor, ancillary nonresidential structure as
defined by the commissioner of revenue does not disqualify the property from classification
under this paragraph. Any parcel of 20 acres or more improved with a structure that is not
a minor, ancillary nonresidential structure must be split-classified, and ten acres must be
assigned to the split parcel containing the structure. Class 2b property has a classification
rate of one percent of market value unless it is part of an agricultural homestead under
paragraph (a), or qualifies as class 2c under paragraph (d).

(d) Class 2c managed forest land consists of no less than 20 and no more than 1,920
acres statewide per taxpayer that is being managed under a forest management plan that
meets the requirements of chapter 290C, but is not enrolled in the sustainable forest resource
management incentive program. It has a classification rate of .65 percent, provided that the
owner of the property must apply to the assessor in order for the property to initially qualify
for the reduced rate and provide the information required by the assessor to verify that the
property qualifies for the reduced rate. If the assessor receives the application and information
before May 1 in an assessment year, the property qualifies beginning with that assessment
year. If the assessor receives the application and information after April 30 in an assessment
year, the property may not qualify until the next assessment year. The commissioner of
natural resources must concur that the land is qualified. The commissioner of natural
resources shall annually provide county assessors verification information on a timely basis.
The presence of a minor, ancillary nonresidential structure as defined by the commissioner
of revenue does not disqualify the property from classification under this paragraph.

(e) Agricultural land as used in this section means:

(1) contiguous acreage of ten acres or more, used during the preceding year for
agricultural purposes; or

(2) contiguous acreage used during the preceding year for an intensive livestock or
poultry confinement operation, provided that land used only for pasturing or grazing does
not qualify under this clause.

"Agricultural purposes" as used in this section means the raising, cultivation, drying, or
storage of agricultural products for sale, or the storage of machinery or equipment used in
support of agricultural production by the same farm entity. For a property to be classified
as agricultural based only on the drying or storage of agricultural products, the products
being dried or stored must have been produced by the same farm entity as the entity operating
the drying or storage facility. "Agricultural purposes" also includes new text begin(i) new text endenrollment in a local
conservation program or the Reinvest in Minnesota program under sections 103F.501 to
103F.535 or the federal Conservation Reserve Program as contained in Public Law 99-198

or (ii) use of land, not to exceed three acres, to provide environmental benefits such as buffer
strips, old growth forest restoration or retention, or retention ponds to prevent soil erosion
new text end.
For purposes of this section, a "local conservation program" means a program administered
by a town, statutory or home rule charter city, or county, including a watershed district,
water management organization, or soil and water conservation district, in which landowners
voluntarily enroll land and receive incentive payments equal to at least $50 per acre in
exchange for use or other restrictions placed on the land. In order for property to qualify
under the local conservation program provision, a taxpayer must apply to the assessor by
February 1 of the assessment year and must submit the information required by the assessor,
including but not limited to a copy of the program requirements, the specific agreement
between the land owner and the local agency, if applicable, and a map of the conservation
area. Agricultural classification shall not be based upon the market value of any residential
structures on the parcel or contiguous parcels under the same ownership.

"Contiguous acreage," for purposes of this paragraph, means all of, or a contiguous
portion of, a tax parcel as described in section 272.193, or all of, or a contiguous portion
of, a set of contiguous tax parcels under that section that are owned by the same person.

(f) Agricultural land under this section also includes:

(1) contiguous acreage that is less than ten acres in size and exclusively used in the
preceding year for raising or cultivating agricultural products; or

(2) contiguous acreage that contains a residence and is less than 11 acres in size, if the
contiguous acreage exclusive of the house, garage, and surrounding one acre of land was
used in the preceding year for one or more of the following three uses:

(i) for an intensive grain drying or storage operation, or for intensive machinery or
equipment storage activities used to support agricultural activities on other parcels of property
operated by the same farming entity;

(ii) as a nursery, provided that only those acres used intensively to produce nursery stock
are considered agricultural land; or

(iii) for intensive market farming; for purposes of this paragraph, "market farming"
means the cultivation of one or more fruits or vegetables or production of animal or other
agricultural products for sale to local markets by the farmer or an organization with which
the farmer is affiliated.

"Contiguous acreage," for purposes of this paragraph, means all of a tax parcel as
described in section 272.193, or all of a set of contiguous tax parcels under that section that
are owned by the same person.

(g) Land shall be classified as agricultural even if all or a portion of the agricultural use
of that property is the leasing to, or use by another person for agricultural purposes.

Classification under this subdivision is not determinative for qualifying under section
273.111.

(h) The property classification under this section supersedes, for property tax purposes
only, any locally administered agricultural policies or land use restrictions that define
minimum or maximum farm acreage.

(i) The term "agricultural products" as used in this subdivision includes production for
sale of:

(1) livestock, dairy animals, dairy products, poultry and poultry products, fur-bearing
animals, horticultural and nursery stock, fruit of all kinds, vegetables, forage, grains, bees,
and apiary products by the owner;

(2) aquacultural products for sale and consumption, as defined under section 17.47, if
the aquaculture occurs on land zoned for agricultural use;

(3) the commercial boarding of horses, which may include related horse training and
riding instruction, if the boarding is done on property that is also used for raising pasture
to graze horses or raising or cultivating other agricultural products as defined in clause (1);

(4) property which is owned and operated by nonprofit organizations used for equestrian
activities, excluding racing;

(5) game birds and waterfowl bred and raised (i) on a game farm licensed under section
97A.105, provided that the annual licensing report to the Department of Natural Resources,
which must be submitted annually by March 30 to the assessor, indicates that at least 500
birds were raised or used for breeding stock on the property during the preceding year and
that the owner provides a copy of the owner's most recent schedule F; or (ii) for use on a
shooting preserve licensed under section 97A.115;

(6) insects primarily bred to be used as food for animals;

(7) trees, grown for sale as a crop, including short rotation woody crops, and not sold
for timber, lumber, wood, or wood products; and

(8) maple syrup taken from trees grown by a person licensed by the Minnesota
Department of Agriculture under chapter 28A as a food processor.

(j) If a parcel used for agricultural purposes is also used for commercial or industrial
purposes, including but not limited to:

(1) wholesale and retail sales;

(2) processing of raw agricultural products or other goods;

(3) warehousing or storage of processed goods; and

(4) office facilities for the support of the activities enumerated in clauses (1), (2), and
(3),

the assessor shall classify the part of the parcel used for agricultural purposes as class 1b,
2a, or 2b, whichever is appropriate, and the remainder in the class appropriate to its use.
The grading, sorting, and packaging of raw agricultural products for first sale is considered
an agricultural purpose. A greenhouse or other building where horticultural or nursery
products are grown that is also used for the conduct of retail sales must be classified as
agricultural if it is primarily used for the growing of horticultural or nursery products from
seed, cuttings, or roots and occasionally as a showroom for the retail sale of those products.
Use of a greenhouse or building only for the display of already grown horticultural or nursery
products does not qualify as an agricultural purpose.

(k) The assessor shall determine and list separately on the records the market value of
the homestead dwelling and the one acre of land on which that dwelling is located. If any
farm buildings or structures are located on this homesteaded acre of land, their market value
shall not be included in this separate determination.

(l) Class 2d airport landing area consists of a landing area or public access area of a
privately owned public use airport. It has a classification rate of one percent of market value.
To qualify for classification under this paragraph, a privately owned public use airport must
be licensed as a public airport under section 360.018. For purposes of this paragraph, "landing
area" means that part of a privately owned public use airport properly cleared, regularly
maintained, and made available to the public for use by aircraft and includes runways,
taxiways, aprons, and sites upon which are situated landing or navigational aids. A landing
area also includes land underlying both the primary surface and the approach surfaces that
comply with all of the following:

(i) the land is properly cleared and regularly maintained for the primary purposes of the
landing, taking off, and taxiing of aircraft; but that portion of the land that contains facilities
for servicing, repair, or maintenance of aircraft is not included as a landing area;

(ii) the land is part of the airport property; and

(iii) the land is not used for commercial or residential purposes.

The land contained in a landing area under this paragraph must be described and certified
by the commissioner of transportation. The certification is effective until it is modified, or
until the airport or landing area no longer meets the requirements of this paragraph. For
purposes of this paragraph, "public access area" means property used as an aircraft parking
ramp, apron, or storage hangar, or an arrival and departure building in connection with the
airport.

(m) Class 2e consists of land with a commercial aggregate deposit that is not actively
being mined and is not otherwise classified as class 2a or 2b, provided that the land is not
located in a county that has elected to opt-out of the aggregate preservation program as
provided in section 273.1115, subdivision 6. It has a classification rate of one percent of
market value. To qualify for classification under this paragraph, the property must be at
least ten contiguous acres in size and the owner of the property must record with the county
recorder of the county in which the property is located an affidavit containing:

(1) a legal description of the property;

(2) a disclosure that the property contains a commercial aggregate deposit that is not
actively being mined but is present on the entire parcel enrolled;

(3) documentation that the conditional use under the county or local zoning ordinance
of this property is for mining; and

(4) documentation that a permit has been issued by the local unit of government or the
mining activity is allowed under local ordinance. The disclosure must include a statement
from a registered professional geologist, engineer, or soil scientist delineating the deposit
and certifying that it is a commercial aggregate deposit.

For purposes of this section and section 273.1115, "commercial aggregate deposit"
means a deposit that will yield crushed stone or sand and gravel that is suitable for use as
a construction aggregate; and "actively mined" means the removal of top soil and overburden
in preparation for excavation or excavation of a commercial deposit.

(n) When any portion of the property under this subdivision or subdivision 22 begins to
be actively mined, the owner must file a supplemental affidavit within 60 days from the
day any aggregate is removed stating the number of acres of the property that is actively
being mined. The acres actively being mined must be (1) valued and classified under
subdivision 24 in the next subsequent assessment year, and (2) removed from the aggregate
resource preservation property tax program under section 273.1115, if the land was enrolled
in that program. Copies of the original affidavit and all supplemental affidavits must be
filed with the county assessor, the local zoning administrator, and the Department of Natural
Resources, Division of Land and Minerals. A supplemental affidavit must be filed each
time a subsequent portion of the property is actively mined, provided that the minimum
acreage change is five acres, even if the actual mining activity constitutes less than five
acres.

(o) The definitions prescribed by the commissioner under paragraphs (c) and (d) are not
rules and are exempt from the rulemaking provisions of chapter 14, and the provisions in
section 14.386 concerning exempt rules do not apply.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 273.13, subdivision 35, is amended to read:


Subd. 35.

Homestead market value exclusion.

(a) Prior to determining a property's
net tax capacity under this section, property classified as class 1a or 1b under subdivision
22, and the portion of property classified as class 2a under subdivision 23 consisting of the
house, garage, and surrounding one acre of land, shall be eligible for a market value exclusion
as determined under paragraph (b).

(b) For a homestead valued at $76,000 or less, the exclusion is 40 percent of market
value. For a homestead valued between $76,000 and $413,800, the exclusion is $30,400
minus nine percent of the valuation over $76,000. For a homestead valued at $413,800 or
more, there is no valuation exclusion. The valuation exclusion shall be rounded to the nearest
whole dollar, and may not be less than zero.

(c) Any valuation exclusions or adjustments under section 273.11 shall be applied prior
to determining the amount of the valuation exclusion under this subdivision.

(d) In the case of a property that is classified as part homestead and part nonhomestead,
(i) the exclusion shall apply only to the homestead portion of the property, but (ii) if a portion
of a property is classified as nonhomestead solely because not all the owners occupy the
property, not all the owners have qualifying relatives occupying the property, or solely
because not all the spouses of owners occupy the property, the exclusion amount shall be

Agricultural homestead market value credit.

Property classified as agricultural
homestead under section 273.13, subdivision 23, paragraph (a), is eligible for an agricultural
credit. The credit is computed using the property's agricultural credit market value, defined
for this purpose as the property's market value excluding the market value of the house,
garage, and immediately surrounding one acre of land. The credit is equal to 0.3 percent of
the first $115,000 of the property's agricultural credit market value plus 0.1 percent of the
property's agricultural credit market value in excess of $115,000, subject to a maximum
credit of $490. In the case of property that is classified as part homestead and part
nonhomestead solely because not all the owners occupy or farm the property, not all the
owners have qualifying relatives occupying or farming the property, or solely because not
all the spouses of owners occupy the property, the credit is computed on the amount of
agricultural credit market value corresponding to the new text beginowner-occupant's new text endpercentage of

county auditor under sections 282.01 to 282.13, the auditor shall immediately certify to the
commissioner of revenue such information relating to such sale, on such forms as the
commissioner of revenue may prescribe as will enable the commissioner of revenue to
prepare an appropriate deed if the sale is for cash, or keep necessary records if the sale is
on terms; and not later than October 31 of each year the county auditor shall submit to the
commissioner of revenue a statement of all instances wherein any payment of principal,
interest, or current taxes on lands held under certificate, due or to be paid during the preceding
calendar years, are still outstanding at the time such certificate is made. When such statement
shows that a purchaser or the purchaser's assignee is in default, the commissioner of revenue
may instruct the county board of the county in which the land is located to cancel said
certificate of sale in the manner provided by subdivision 5, provided that upon
recommendation of the county board, and where the circumstances are such that the
commissioner of revenue after investigation is satisfied that the purchaser has made every
effort reasonable to make payment of both the annual installment and said taxes, and that
there has been no willful neglect on the part of the purchaser in meeting these obligations,
then the commissioner of revenue may extend the time for the payment for such period as
the commissioner may deem warranted, not to exceed one year. On payment in full of the
purchase price, appropriate conveyance in fee, in such form as may be prescribed by the
attorney general, shall be issued by the commissioner of revenue, which conveyance must
be recorded by the county and shall have the force and effect of a patent from the state
subject to easements and restrictions of record at the date of the tax judgment sale, including,
but without limitation, permits for telephone and electric power lines either by underground
cable or conduit or otherwise, sewer and water lines, highways, railroads, and pipe lines for
gas, liquids, or solids in suspension.

new text begin (b) The commissioner of revenue shall issue an appropriate conveyance in fee when
approval from the county auditor is given based upon written confirmation from a licensed
closing agent, title insurer, or title insurance agent as specified in section 82.641. For purposes
of this paragraph, "written confirmation" means a written commitment or approval that the
funding for the conveyance is held in an escrow account available for disbursement upon
delivery of a conveyance. The conveyance issued by the commissioner of revenue shall not
be effective as a conveyance until it is recorded. The conveyance shall be issued to the
county auditor where the land is located. Upon receipt of the conveyance, the county auditor
shall hold the conveyance until the conveyance is requested from a licensed closing agent,
title insurer, or title insurance agent to settle and close on the conveyance. If a request for
the conveyance is not made within 30 days of the date the conveyance is issued by the
commissioner of revenue, the county auditor shall return the conveyance to the commissioner.
If the conveyance is delivered to the licensed closing agent, title insurer, or title insurance
agent and the closing does not occur within ten days of the request, the licensed closing
agent, title insurer, or title insurance agent shall immediately return the conveyance to the
county auditor and, upon receipt, the county auditor shall return the conveyance to the
commissioner of revenue. The commissioner of revenue shall cancel and destroy all
conveyances returned by the county auditor pursuant to this subdivision. The licensed closing
agent, title insurer, or title insurance agent must promptly record the conveyance after the
closing and must deliver an attested or certified copy to the county auditor and to the grantee
or grantees named on the conveyance.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 287.21, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Determination of tax.

(a) A tax is imposed on each deed or instrument
by which any real property in this state is granted, assigned, transferred, or otherwise
conveyed. The tax applies against the net consideration. For purposes of the tax, the
conversion of a corporation to a limited liability company, a limited liability company to a
corporation, a partnership to a limited partnership, a limited partnership to another limited
partnership or other entity, or a similar conversion of one entity to another does not grant,
assign, transfer, or convey real property.

(b) The tax is determined in the following manner: (1) when transfers are made by
instruments pursuant to (i) consolidations or mergers, or (ii) designated transfers, the tax is
$1.65; (2) when there is no consideration or when the consideration, exclusive of the value
of any lien or encumbrance remaining thereon at the time of sale, is deleted text begin$500deleted text endnew text begin $3,000new text end or less,
the tax is $1.65; or (3) when the consideration, exclusive of the value of any lien or
encumbrance remaining at the time of sale, exceeds deleted text begin$500deleted text endnew text begin $3,000new text end, the tax is .0033 of the net
consideration.

(c) If, within six months from the date of a designated transfer, an ownership interest in
the grantee entity is transferred by an initial owner to any person or entity with the result
that the designated transfer would not have been a designated transfer if made to the grantee
entity with its subsequent ownership, then a tax is imposed at .0033 of the net consideration
for the designated transfer. If the subsequent transfer of ownership interests was reasonably
expected at the time of the designated transfer, the applicable penalty under section 287.31,
subdivision 1
, must be paid. The deed tax imposed under this paragraph is due within 30
days of the subsequent transfer that caused the tax to be imposed under this paragraph.
Involuntary transfers of ownership shall not be considered transfers of ownership under this
paragraph. The commissioner may adopt rules defining the types of transfers to be considered
involuntary.

(d) The tax is due at the time a taxable deed or instrument is presented for recording,
except as provided in paragraph (c). The commissioner may require the tax to be documented
in a manner prescribed by the commissioner, and may require that the documentation be
attached to and recorded as part of the deed or instrument. The county recorder or registrar
of titles shall accept the attachment for recording as part of the deed or instrument and may
not require, as a condition of recording a deed or instrument, evidence that a transfer is a
designated transfer in addition to that required by the commissioner. Such an attachment
shall not, however, provide actual or constructive notice of the information contained therein
for purposes of determining any interest in the real property. The commissioner shall
prescribe the manner in which the tax due under paragraph (c) is to be paid and may require
grantees of designated transfers to file with the commissioner subsequent statements verifying
that the tax provided under paragraph (c) does not apply.

Subd. 13.

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, deleted text beginand for homesteads
which are

by a cooperative organized under chapter 308A or 308B, and
new text end 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 15 of the assessment year to which the "property taxes payable" relate;
or (ii) the claimant must provide documentation from the local assessor that application for
homestead classification has been made on or before December 15 of the year in which the
"property taxes payable" were payable and that the assessor has approved the application.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 469.177, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Original net tax capacity.

(a) Upon or after adoption of a tax increment
financing plan, the auditor of any county in which the district is situated shall, upon request
of the authority, certify the original net tax capacity of the tax increment financing district
and that portion of the district overlying any subdistrict as described in the tax increment
financing plan and shall certify in each year thereafter the amount by which the original net
tax capacity has increased or decreased as a result of a change in tax exempt status of
property within the district and any subdistrict, reduction or enlargement of the district or
changes pursuant to subdivision 4. The auditor shall certify the amount within 30 days after
receipt of the request and sufficient information to identify the parcels included in the district.
The certification relates to the taxes payable year as provided in subdivision 6.

(b) If the classification under section 273.13 of property located in a district changes to
a classification that has a different assessment ratio, the original net tax capacity of that
property must be redetermined at the time when its use is changed as if the property had
originally been classified in the same class in which it is classified after its use is changed.

(c) The amount to be added to the original net tax capacity of the district as a result of
previously tax exempt real property within the district becoming taxable equals the net tax
capacity of the real property as most recently assessed pursuant to deleted text beginsection 273.18deleted text endnew text begin information
reported to the commissioner under section 270C.85, subdivision 2, clause (4),
new text end or, if that
assessment was made more than one year prior to the date of title transfer rendering the
property taxable, the net tax capacity assessed by the assessor at the time of the transfer. If
improvements are made to tax exempt property after the municipality approves the district
and before the parcel becomes taxable, the assessor shall, at the request of the authority,
separately assess the estimated market value of the improvements. If the property becomes
taxable, the county auditor shall add to original net tax capacity, the net tax capacity of the
parcel, excluding the separately assessed improvements. If substantial taxable improvements
were made to a parcel after certification of the district and if the property later becomes tax
exempt, in whole or part, as a result of the authority acquiring the property through
foreclosure or exercise of remedies under a lease or other revenue agreement or as a result
of tax forfeiture, the amount to be added to the original net tax capacity of the district as a
result of the property again becoming taxable is the amount of the parcel's value that was
included in original net tax capacity when the parcel was first certified. The amount to be
added to the original net tax capacity of the district as a result of enlargements equals the
net tax capacity of the added real property as most recently certified by the commissioner
of revenue as of the date of modification of the tax increment financing plan pursuant to
section 469.175, subdivision 4.

(d) If the net tax capacity of a property increases because the property no longer qualifies
under the Minnesota Agricultural Property Tax Law, section 273.111; the Minnesota Open
Space Property Tax Law, section 273.112; or the Metropolitan Agricultural Preserves Act,
chapter 473H, the Rural Preserve Property Tax Program under section 273.114, or because
platted, unimproved property is improved or market value is increased after approval of the
plat under section 273.11, subdivision 14a or 14b, the increase in net tax capacity must be
added to the original net tax capacity. If the net tax capacity of a property increases because
the property no longer qualifies for the homestead market value exclusion under section
273.13, subdivision 35, the increase in net tax capacity must be added to original net tax
capacity if the original construction of the affected home was completed before the date the
assessor certified the original net tax capacity of the district.

(e) The amount to be subtracted from the original net tax capacity of the district as a
result of previously taxable real property within the district becoming tax exempt or
qualifying in whole or part for an exclusion from taxable market value, or a reduction in
the geographic area of the district, shall be the amount of original net tax capacity initially
attributed to the property becoming tax exempt, being excluded from taxable market value,
or being removed from the district. If the net tax capacity of property located within the tax
increment financing district is reduced by reason of a court-ordered abatement, stipulation
agreement, voluntary abatement made by the assessor or auditor or by order of the
commissioner of revenue, the reduction shall be applied to the original net tax capacity of
the district when the property upon which the abatement is made has not been improved
since the date of certification of the district and to the captured net tax capacity of the district
in each year thereafter when the abatement relates to improvements made after the date of
certification. The county auditor may specify reasonable form and content of the request
for certification of the authority and any modification thereof pursuant to section 469.175,
subdivision 4
.

(f) If a parcel of property contained a substandard building or improvements described
in section 469.174, subdivision 10, paragraph (e), that were demolished or removed and if
the authority elects to treat the parcel as occupied by a substandard building under section
469.174, subdivision 10, paragraph (b), or by improvements under section 469.174,
subdivision 10
, paragraph (e), the auditor shall certify the original net tax capacity of the
parcel using the greater of (1) the current net tax capacity of the parcel, or (2) the estimated
market value of the parcel for the year in which the building or other improvements were
demolished or removed, but applying the classification rates for the current year.

(g) For a redevelopment district qualifying under section 469.174, subdivision 10,
paragraph (a), clause (4), as a qualified disaster area, the auditor shall certify the value of
the land as the original tax capacity for any parcel in the district that contains a building
that suffered substantial damage as a result of the disaster or emergency.

2, 1982, assessed value in the case of a township and 50 percent of the January 2, 1980,
assessed value in the case of a city and its current assessed value to (2) the sum of its current
