Subd. 2.

Tax imposed.

(a) Except as provided in paragraph (e), a county that
imposes the aggregate production tax shall impose upon every operator a production tax
of 21.5 cents per cubic yard or 15 cents per ton of aggregate material excavated in the
county except that the county board may decide not to impose this tax if it determines
that in the previous year operators removed less than 20,000 tons or 14,000 cubic yards of
aggregate material from that county. The tax shall not be imposed on aggregate material
excavated in the county until the aggregate material is transported from the extraction site
or sold, whichever occurs first. When aggregate material is stored in a stockpile within the
state of Minnesota and a public highway, road or street is not used for transporting the
aggregate material, the tax shall not be imposed until either when the aggregate material
is sold, or when it is transported from the stockpile site, or when it is used from the
stockpile, whichever occurs first.

(b) Except as provided in paragraph (e), a county that imposes the aggregate
production tax under paragraph (a) shall impose upon every importer a production tax
of 21.5 cents per cubic yard or 15 cents per ton of aggregate material imported into the
county. The tax shall be imposed when the aggregate material is imported from the
extraction site or sold. When imported aggregate material is stored in a stockpile within
the state of Minnesota and a public highway, road, or street is not used for transporting
the aggregate material, the tax shall be imposed either when the aggregate material is
sold, when it is transported from the stockpile site, or when it is used from the stockpile,
whichever occurs first. The tax shall be imposed on an importer when the aggregate
material is imported into the county that imposes the tax.

(c) If the aggregate material is transported directly from the extraction site to a
waterway, railway, or another mode of transportation other than a highway, road or street,
the tax imposed by this section shall be apportioned equally between the county where the
aggregate material is extracted and the county to which the aggregate material is originally
transported. If that destination is not located in Minnesota, then the county where the
aggregate material was extracted shall receive all of the proceeds of the tax.

(d) A county, city, or town that receives revenue under this section is prohibited
from imposing any additional host community fees on aggregate production within that
county, city, or town.

(e) A county that borders two other states and that is not contiguous to a county
that imposes a tax under this section may impose the taxes under paragraphs (a) and (b)
at the rate of ten cents per cubic yard or seven cents per ton. deleted text beginThis paragraph expires

for certification was made after June 30, 1997:

(1) The original net tax capacity and the current net tax capacity shall be determined
before the application of the fiscal disparity provisions of chapter 276A or 473F. Where
the original net tax capacity is equal to or greater than the current net tax capacity, there is
no captured net tax capacity and no tax increment determination. Where the original net
tax capacity is less than the current net tax capacity, the difference between the original
net tax capacity and the current net tax capacity is the captured net tax capacity. This
amount less any portion thereof which the authority has designated, in its tax increment
financing plan, to share with the local taxing districts is the retained captured net tax
capacity of the authority.

(2) The county auditor shall exclude the retained captured net tax capacity of the
authority from the net tax capacity of the local taxing districts in determining local taxing
district tax rates. The local tax rates so determined are to be extended against the retained
captured net tax capacity of the authority as well as the net tax capacity of the local taxing
districts. The tax generated by the extension of the lesser of (A) the local taxing district
tax rates or (B) the original local tax rate to the retained captured net tax capacity of the
authority is the tax increment of the authority.

(b) The following method of computation applies to any deleted text begineconomic development

deleted text end other district for which the governing body, by resolution approving the tax increment
financing plan pursuant to section 469.175, subdivision 3, elects:

(1) The original net tax capacity shall be determined before the application of the
fiscal disparity provisions of chapter 276A or 473F. The current net tax capacity shall
exclude any fiscal disparity commercial-industrial net tax capacity increase between
the original year and the current year multiplied by the fiscal disparity ratio determined
pursuant to section 276A.06, subdivision 7, or 473F.08, subdivision 6. Where the original
net tax capacity is equal to or greater than the current net tax capacity, there is no captured
net tax capacity and no tax increment determination. Where the original net tax capacity is
less than the current net tax capacity, the difference between the original net tax capacity
and the current net tax capacity is the captured net tax capacity. This amount less any
portion thereof which the authority has designated, in its tax increment financing plan, to
share with the local taxing districts is the retained captured net tax capacity of the authority.

(2) The county auditor shall exclude the retained captured net tax capacity of the
authority from the net tax capacity of the local taxing districts in determining local taxing
district tax rates. The local tax rates so determined are to be extended against the retained
captured net tax capacity of the authority as well as the net tax capacity of the local taxing
districts. The tax generated by the extension of the lesser of (A) the local taxing district
tax rates or (B) the original local tax rate to the retained captured net tax capacity of the
authority is the tax increment of the authority.

(3) An election by the governing body pursuant to paragraph (b) shall be submitted

subdivision 1.

(c) The method of computation of tax increment applied to a district pursuant to

is in jeopardy, the commissioner may proceed under section 270C.36 and terminate the
agreement without regard to the 14-day period.

appropriate to secure satisfaction of the tax liability. The principal sum specified in the

(f) If it appears to the commissioner that the tax reported by the taxpayer is in excess
of the amount actually owing by the taxpayer, the extension agreement or the judgment
entered pursuant thereto shall be corrected. If after making the extension agreement
or entering judgment with respect thereto, the commissioner determines that the tax as
reported by the taxpayer is less than the amount actually due, the commissioner shall
assess a further tax in accordance with the provisions of law applicable to the tax.

(g) The authority granted to the commissioner by this section is in addition to any
other authority granted to the commissioner by law to extend the time of payment or the
time for filing a return and shall not be construed in limitation thereof.

(h) The commissioner shall charge a fee for entering into payment agreements deleted text beginthat

$50 and is charged for entering into a payment agreement, for entering into a new payment
agreement after the taxpayer has defaulted on a prior agreement, and for entering into a
new payment agreement as a result of renegotiation of the terms of an existing agreement.
The fee is paid to the commissioner before the payment agreement becomes effective and
does not reduce the amount of the liability.

Methodology.

In making its annual assessment/sales ratio studies, the
Department of Revenue must use a methodology consistent with the most recent Standard

that changed classification as soon as practicable. A change in status from homestead to
nonhomestead or from nonhomestead to homestead is not a change under this subdivision.

Subdivision 1.

Ordinary board; meetings, deadlines, grievances.

(a) The town
board of a town, or the council or other governing body of a city, is the board of appeal
and equalization except (1) in cities whose charters provide for a board of equalization or
(2) in any city or town that has transferred its local board of review power and duties to
the county board as provided in subdivision 3. The county assessor shall fix a day and
time when the board or the board of equalization shall meet in the assessment districts
of the county. Notwithstanding any law or city charter to the contrary, a city board of
equalization shall be referred to as a board of appeal and equalization. On or before
February 15 of each year the assessor shall give written notice of the time to the city or
town clerk. Notwithstanding the provisions of any charter to the contrary, the meetings
must be held between April 1 and May 31 each year. The clerk shall give published and
posted notice of the meeting at least ten days before the date of the meeting.

The board shall meet at the office of the clerk to review the assessment and
classification of property in the town or city. No changes in valuation or classification
which are intended to correct errors in judgment by the county assessor may be made by
the county assessor after the board has adjourned in those cities or towns that hold a
local board of review; however, corrections of errors that are merely clerical in nature or
changes that extend homestead treatment to property are permitted after adjournment until
the tax extension date for that assessment year. The changes must be fully documented and
maintained in the assessor's office and must be available for review by any person. A copy
of the changes made during this period in those cities or towns that hold a local board of
review must be sent to the county board no later than December 31 of the assessment year.

(b) The board shall determine whether the taxable property in the town or city has
been properly placed on the list and properly valued by the assessor. If real or personal
property has been omitted, the board shall place it on the list with its market value, and
correct the assessment so that each tract or lot of real property, and each article, parcel,
or class of personal property, is entered on the assessment list at its market value. No
assessment of the property of any person may be raised unless the person has been
duly notified of the intent of the board to do so. On application of any person feeling
aggrieved, the board shall review the assessment or classification, or both, and correct
it as appears just. The board may not make an individual market value adjustment or
classification change that would benefit the property if the owner or other person having
control over the property has refused the assessor access to inspect the property and the
interior of any buildings or structures as provided in section 273.20. A board member
shall not participate in any actions of the board which result in market value adjustments
or classification changes to property owned by the board member, the spouse, parent,
stepparent, child, stepchild, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew,
or niece of a board member, or property in which a board member has a financial interest.
The relationship may be by blood or marriage.

(c) A local board may reduce assessments upon petition of the taxpayer but the total
reductions must not reduce the aggregate assessment made by the county assessor by more
than one percent. If the total reductions would lower the aggregate assessments made by
the county assessor by more than one percent, none of the adjustments may be made. The
assessor shall correct any clerical errors or double assessments discovered by the board
without regard to the one percent limitation.

(d) A local board does not have authority to grant an exemption or to order property
removed from the tax rolls.

(e) A majority of the members may act at the meeting, and adjourn from day to day
until they finish hearing the cases presented. The assessor shall attenddeleted text begin, with the assessment
books and papers,

(f) Except as provided in subdivision 3, if a person fails to appear in person, by
counsel, or by written communication before the board after being duly notified of the
board's intent to raise the assessment of the property, or if a person feeling aggrieved by an
assessment or classification fails to apply for a review of the assessment or classification,
the person may not appear before the county board of appeal and equalization for a review

made after the local board meeting, as provided in section 273.01, or if the person can
establish not having received notice of market value at least five days before the local
board meeting.

(g) The local board must complete its work and adjourn within 20 days from the
time of convening stated in the notice of the clerk, unless a longer period is approved by
the commissioner of revenue. No action taken after that date is valid. All complaints
about an assessment or classification made after the meeting of the board must be heard
and determined by the county board of equalization. A nonresident may, at any time,
before the meeting of the board file written objections to an assessment or classification
with the county assessor. The objections must be presented to the board at its meeting by
the county assessor for its consideration.

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

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

for such period as the commissioner may deem warranted, not to exceed one year. On
