of land, of less than ten acres which is exclusively and intensively used for raising or
cultivating agricultural products, shall be considered as agricultural land.

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.

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.

(e) 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) fish bred for sale and consumption if the fish breeding occurs on land zoned
for agricultural use;

(3) the commercial boarding of horses if the boarding is done in conjunction with
raising or cultivating 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 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, 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.

(f) 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.

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.

(g) To qualify for classification under paragraph (b), clause (4), a privately owned
public use airport must be licensed as a public airport under section 360.018. For purposes
of paragraph (b), clause (4), "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 paragraph (b), clause (4), 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
paragraph (b), clause (4). For purposes of paragraph (b), clause (4), "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.

Subd. 2.

Contents of tax statements.

(a) The treasurer shall provide for the
printing of the tax statements. The commissioner of revenue shall prescribe the form
of the property tax statement and its contents. The statement must contain a tabulated
statement of the dollar amount due to each taxing authority and the amount of the state
tax from the parcel of real property for which a particular tax statement is prepared. The
dollar amounts attributable to the county, the state tax, the voter approved school tax, the
other local school tax, the township or municipality, and the total of the metropolitan
special taxing districts as defined in section 275.065, subdivision 3, paragraph (i), must
be separately stated. The amounts due all other special taxing districts, if any, may be
aggregated except that any levies made by the regional rail authorities in the county of
Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, or Washington under chapter 398A
shall be listed on a separate line directly under the appropriate county's levy. If the county
levy under this paragraph includes an amount for a lake improvement district as defined
under sections 103B.501 to 103B.581, the amount attributable for that purpose must be
separately stated from the remaining county levy amount. In the case of Ramsey County,
if the county levy under this paragraph includes an amount for public library service
under section 134.07, the amount attributable for that purpose may be separated from the
remaining county levy amount. The amount of the tax on homesteads qualifying under the
senior citizens' property tax deferral program under chapter 290B is the total amount of
property tax before subtraction of the deferred property tax amount. The amount of the
tax on contamination value imposed under sections 270.91 to 270.98, if any, must also
be separately stated. The dollar amounts, including the dollar amount of any special
assessments, may be rounded to the nearest even whole dollar. For purposes of this section
whole odd-numbered dollars may be adjusted to the next higher even-numbered dollar.
The amount of market value excluded under section 273.11, subdivision 16, if any, must
also be listed on the tax statement.

(b) The property tax statements for manufactured homes and sectional structures
taxed as personal property shall contain the same information that is required on the
tax statements for real property.

(c) Real and personal property tax statements must contain the following information
in the order given in this paragraph. The information must contain the current year tax
information in the right column with the corresponding information for the previous year
in a column on the left:

(1) the property's estimated market value under section 273.11, subdivision 1;

(2) the property's taxable market value after reductions under section 273.11,
subdivisions 1a and 16
;

(3) the property's gross tax, deleted text begincalculated by adding the property's total property tax to

(d) If the county uses envelopes for mailing property tax statements and if the county
agrees, a taxing district may include a notice with the property tax statement notifying
taxpayers when the taxing district will begin its budget deliberations for the current
year, and encouraging taxpayers to attend the hearings. If the county allows notices to
be included in the envelope containing the property tax statement, and if more than
one taxing district relative to a given property decides to include a notice with the tax
statement, the county treasurer or auditor must coordinate the process and may combine
the information on a single announcement.

Income not derived from conduct of a trade or business.

The income of
a taxpayer subject to the allocation rules that is not derived from the conduct of a trade or
business must be assigned in accordance with paragraphs (a) to (f):

(a)(1) Subject to paragraphs (a)(2)deleted text begin,deleted text end new text beginand new text end(a)(3), deleted text beginand (a)(4),deleted text end income from wages as
defined in section 3401(a) and (f) of the Internal Revenue Code is assigned to this state if,
and to the extent that, the work of the employee is performed within it; all other income
from such sources is treated as income from sources without this state.

Severance pay shall be considered income from labor or personal or professional
services.

(2) In the case of an individual who is a nonresident of Minnesota and who is an
athlete or entertainer, income from compensation for labor or personal services performed
within this state shall be determined in the following manner:

(i) The amount of income to be assigned to Minnesota for an individual who is a
nonresident salaried athletic team employee shall be determined by using a fraction in
which the denominator contains the total number of days in which the individual is under
a duty to perform for the employer, and the numerator is the total number of those days
spent in Minnesota. For purposes of this paragraph, off-season training activities, unless
conducted at the team's facilities as part of a team imposed program, are not included in
the total number of duty days. Bonuses earned as a result of play during the regular season
or for participation in championship, play-off, or all-star games must be allocated under
the formula. Signing bonuses are not subject to allocation under the formula if they are
not conditional on playing any games for the team, are payable separately from any other
compensation, and are nonrefundable; and

(ii) The amount of income to be assigned to Minnesota for an individual who is a
nonresident, and who is an athlete or entertainer not listed in clause (i), for that person's
athletic or entertainment performance in Minnesota shall be determined by assigning to
this state all income from performances or athletic contests in this state.

(3) For purposes of this section, amounts received by a nonresident as "retirement
income" as defined in section (b)(1) of the State Income Taxation of Pension Income
Act, Public Law 104-95, are not considered income derived from carrying on a trade
or business or from wages or other compensation for work an employee performed in
Minnesota, and are not taxable under this chapter.

deleted text begin (4) Wages, otherwise assigned to this state under clause (1) and not qualifying under
clause (3), are not taxable under this chapter if the following conditions are met:
deleted text end

deleted text begin (i) the recipient was not a resident of this state for any part of the taxable year in
which the wages were received; and
deleted text end

deleted text begin (ii) the wages are for work performed while the recipient was a resident of this state.
deleted text end

(b) Income or gains from tangible property located in this state that is not employed
in the business of the recipient of the income or gains must be assigned to this state.

(c) Income or gains from intangible personal property not employed in the business
of the recipient of the income or gains must be assigned to this state if the recipient of the
income or gains is a resident of this state or is a resident trust or estate.

Gain on the sale of a partnership interest is allocable to this state in the ratio of the
original cost of partnership tangible property in this state to the original cost of partnership
tangible property everywhere, determined at the time of the sale. If more than 50 percent
of the value of the partnership's assets consists of intangibles, gain or loss from the sale
of the partnership interest is allocated to this state in accordance with the sales factor of
the partnership for its first full tax period immediately preceding the tax period of the
partnership during which the partnership interest was sold.

Gain on the sale of goodwill or income from a covenant not to compete that is
connected with a business operating all or partially in Minnesota is allocated to this state
to the extent that the income from the business in the year preceding the year of sale was
assignable to Minnesota under subdivision 3.

When an employer pays an employee for a covenant not to compete, the income
allocated to this state is in the ratio of the employee's service in Minnesota in the calendar
year preceding leaving the employment of the employer over the total services performed
by the employee for the employer in that year.

(d) Income from winnings on a bet made by an individual while in Minnesota is
assigned to this state. In this paragraph, "bet" has the meaning given in section 609.75,
subdivision 2
, as limited by section 609.75, subdivision 3, clauses (1), (2), and (3).

(e) All items of gross income not covered in paragraphs (a) to (d) and not part of the
taxpayer's income from a trade or business shall be assigned to the taxpayer's domicile.

(f) For the purposes of this section, working as an employee shall not be considered

to have any right, title, interest, or lien in the property, at the last known address, and file
a copy with the commissioner. The notice must include an explanation of the right to
demand a judicial forfeiture determination.

(b) Within 60 days after the date of service of the inventory, which is the date of

in the property may file a demand for a judicial determination of the question as to whether
the property was lawfully subject to seizure and forfeiture. The demand must be in the
form of a civil complaint and must be filed with the court administrator in the county in
which the seizure occurred, together with proof of service of a copy of the complaint
on the commissioner of revenue, and the standard filing fee for civil actions unless the
petitioner has the right to sue in forma pauperis under section 563.01. If the value of the

recovery of the property. If the value of the seized property is less than $500, the claimant
does not have to pay the conciliation court filing fee.

(c) The complaint must be captioned in the name of the claimant as plaintiff and
the seized property as defendant, and must state with specificity the grounds on which
the claimant alleges the property was improperly seized and the plaintiff's interest in the
property seized. No responsive pleading is required of the commissioner, and no court
fees may be charged for the commissioner's appearance in the matter. The proceedings
are governed by the Rules of Civil Procedure. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary,
an action for the return of property seized under this section may not be maintained by

Subdivision 1.

Imposed; calculation.

(a) For concentrate produced in 2001, 2002,
and 2003, there is imposed upon taconite and iron sulphides, and upon the mining and
quarrying thereof, and upon the production of iron ore concentrate therefrom, and upon
the concentrate so produced, a tax of $2.103 per gross ton of merchantable iron ore
concentrate produced therefrom. For concentrates produced in 2005, the tax rate is the
same rate imposed for concentrates produced in 2004.

(b) For concentrates produced in 2006 and subsequent years, the tax rate shall be
equal to the preceding year's tax rate plus an amount equal to the preceding year's tax rate
multiplied by the percentage increase in the implicit price deflator from the fourth quarter
of the second preceding year to the fourth quarter of the preceding year. "Implicit price
deflator" means the implicit price deflator for the gross domestic product prepared by the
Bureau of Economic Analysis of the United States Department of Commerce.

(c) On concentrates produced in 1997 and thereafter, an additional tax is imposed
equal to three cents per gross ton of merchantable iron ore concentrate for each one
percent that the iron content of the product exceeds 72 percent, when dried at 212 degrees
Fahrenheit.

(d) The tax shall be imposed on the average of the production for the current year
and the previous two years. The rate of the tax imposed will be the current year's tax rate.
This clause shall not apply in the case of the closing of a taconite facility if the property
taxes on the facility would be higher if this clause and section 298.25 were not applicable.

(e) If the tax or any part of the tax imposed by this subdivision is held to be
unconstitutional, a tax of $2.103 per gross ton of merchantable iron ore concentrate
produced shall be imposed.

(f) Consistent with the intent of this subdivision to impose a tax based upon the
weight of merchantable iron ore concentrate, the commissioner of revenue may indirectly
determine the weight of merchantable iron ore concentrate included in fluxed pellets by
subtracting the weight of the limestone, dolomite, or olivine derivatives or other basic
flux additives included in the pellets from the weight of the pellets. For purposes of this
paragraph, "fluxed pellets" are pellets produced in a process in which limestone, dolomite,
olivine, or other basic flux additives are combined with merchantable iron ore concentrate.
No subtraction from the weight of the pellets shall be allowed for binders, mineral and
chemical additives other than basic flux additives, or moisture.

(g)(1) Notwithstanding any other provision of this subdivision, for the first two years
of a plant's commercial production of direct reduced ore, no tax is imposed under this
section. As used in this paragraph, "commercial production" is production of more than
50,000 tons of direct reduced ore in the current year or in any prior year, "noncommercial
production" is production of 50,000 tons or less of direct reduced ore in any year, and
"direct reduced ore" is ore that results in a product that has an iron content of at least 75
percent. For the third year of a plant's commercial production of direct reduced ore, the
rate to be applied to direct reduced ore is 25 percent of the rate otherwise determined
under this subdivision. For the fourth commercial production year, the rate is 50 percent of
the rate otherwise determined under this subdivision; for the fifth commercial production
year, the rate is 75 percent of the rate otherwise determined under this subdivision; and for
all subsequent commercial production years, the full rate is imposed.

(2) Subject to clause (1), production of direct reduced ore in this state is subject to
the tax imposed by this section, but if that production is not produced by a producer
of taconite or iron sulfides, the production of taconite or iron sulfides consumed in the
production of direct reduced iron in this state is not subject to the tax imposed by this
section on taconite or iron sulfides.

(3) Notwithstanding any other provision of this subdivision, no tax is imposed
on direct reduced ore under this section during the facility's noncommercial production
of direct reduced ore. The taconite or iron sulphides consumed in the noncommercial
production of direct reduced ore is subject to the tax imposed by this section on taconite
and iron sulphides. Three-year average production of direct reduced ore does not
include production of direct reduced ore in any noncommercial year. Three-year average
production for a direct reduced ore facility that has noncommercial production is the
average of the commercial production of direct reduced ore for the current year and the
previous two commercial years.

new text begin (4) This paragraph applies only to plants for which all environmental permits have
been obtained and construction has begun before July 1, 2008.

upon the concentrate or direct reduced ore produced, or upon the machinery, equipment,
tools, supplies and buildings used in such mining, quarrying or production, or upon the
lands occupied by, or used in connection with, such mining, quarrying or production
facilities. If electric or steam power for the mining, transportation or concentration of
such taconite, concentrates or direct reduced ore produced therefrom is generated in

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 469.174, subdivision 10, is amended to read:


Subd. 10.

Redevelopment district.

(a) "Redevelopment district" means a type of
tax increment financing district consisting of a project, or portions of a project, within
which the authority finds by resolution that one or more of the following conditions,
reasonably distributed throughout the district, exists:

(1) parcels consisting of 70 percent of the area of the district are occupied by
buildings, streets, utilities, paved or gravel parking lots, or other similar structures
and more than 50 percent of the buildings, not including outbuildings, are structurally
substandard to a degree requiring substantial renovation or clearance;

(2) the property consists of vacant, unused, underused, inappropriately used,
or infrequently used railyards, rail storage facilities, or excessive or vacated railroad
rights-of-way;

(3) tank facilities, or property whose immediately previous use was for tank
facilities, as defined in section 115C.02, subdivision 15, if the tank facilities:

(i) have or had a capacity of more than 1,000,000 gallons;

(ii) are located adjacent to rail facilities; and

(iii) have been removed or are unused, underused, inappropriately used, or
infrequently used; or

(4) a qualifying disaster area, as defined in subdivision 10b.

(b) For purposes of this subdivision, "structurally substandard" shall mean
containing defects in structural elements or a combination of deficiencies in essential
utilities and facilities, light and ventilation, fire protection including adequate egress,
layout and condition of interior partitions, or similar factors, which defects or deficiencies
are of sufficient total significance to justify substantial renovation or clearance.

(c) A building is not structurally substandard if it is in compliance with the building
code applicable to new buildings or could be modified to satisfy the building code at
a cost of less than 15 percent of the cost of constructing a new structure of the same
square footage and type on the site. The municipality may find that a building is not
disqualified as structurally substandard under the preceding sentence on the basis of
reasonably available evidence, such as the size, type, and age of the building, the average
cost of plumbing, electrical, or structural repairs, or other similar reliable evidence. The
municipality may not make such a determination without an interior inspection of the
property, but need not have an independent, expert appraisal prepared of the cost of repair
and rehabilitation of the building. An interior inspection of the property is not required,
if the municipality finds that (1) the municipality or authority is unable to gain access to
the property after using its best efforts to obtain permission from the party that owns or
controls the property; and (2) the evidence otherwise supports a reasonable conclusion that
the building is structurally substandard. Items of evidence that support such a conclusion
include recent fire or police inspections, on-site property tax appraisals or housing
inspections, exterior evidence of deterioration, or other similar reliable evidence. Written
documentation of the findings and reasons why an interior inspection was not conducted
must be made and retained under section 469.175, subdivision 3, clause (1). Failure of a
building to be disqualified under the provisions of this paragraph is a necessary, but not a
sufficient, condition to determining that the building is substandard.

(d) A parcel is deemed to be occupied by a structurally substandard building
for purposes of the finding under paragraph (a) new text beginor by the improvements described in
paragraph (e)
new text endif all of the following conditions are met:

(1) the parcel was occupied by a substandard buildingnew text begin or met the requirements
of paragraph (e), as the case may be,

certification of the parcel as part of the district with the county auditor;

(2) the substandard building deleted text beginwasdeleted text endnew text begin or the improvements described in paragraph (e)
were
new text end demolished or removed by the authority or the demolition or removal was financed
by the authority or was done by a developer under a development agreement with the
authority;

(3) the authority found by resolution before the demolition or removal that the
parcel was occupied by a structurally substandard building new text beginor met the requirements of
paragraph (e)
new text endand that after demolition and clearance the authority intended to include
the parcel within a district; and

(4) upon filing the request for certification of the tax capacity of the parcel as part
of a district, the authority notifies the county auditor that the original tax capacity of the
parcel must be adjusted as provided by section 469.177, subdivision 1, paragraph (f).

(e) For purposes of this subdivision, a parcel is not occupied by buildings, streets,
utilities, paved or gravel parking lots, or other similar structures unless 15 percent of the
area of the parcel contains buildings, streets, utilities, paved or gravel parking lots, or
other similar structures.

(f) For districts consisting of two or more noncontiguous areas, each area must
qualify as a redevelopment district under paragraph (a) to be included in the district, and
the entire area of the district must satisfy paragraph (a).

project, within which the authority finds by resolution that:

(1)(i) parcels consisting of 70 percent of the area of the district are occupied by
buildings, streets, utilities, paved or gravel parking lots, or other similar structures; (ii)
20 percent of the buildings are structurally substandard; and (iii) 30 percent of the other
buildings require substantial renovation or clearance to remove existing conditions such
as: inadequate street layout, incompatible uses or land use relationships, overcrowding of
buildings on the land, excessive dwelling unit density, obsolete buildings not suitable for
improvement or conversion, or other identified hazards to the health, safety, and general
well-being of the community; and

(2) the conditions described in clause (1) are reasonably distributed throughout the
geographic area of the district.

within the project, if any, that the authority intends to acquire, identified by parcel number,
identifiable property name, block, or other appropriate means indicating the area in which
the authority intends to acquire properties;

(3) a list of any development activities that the plan proposes to take place within

likely to occur;

(5) estimates of the following:

(i) cost of the project, including administrative expenses, except that if part of the
cost of the project is paid or financed with increment from the tax increment financing

amount of the cost of the project, including administrative expenses, that will be paid or
financed with tax increments from the district;

(ii) amount of bonded indebtedness to be incurred;

(iii) sources of revenue to finance or otherwise pay public costs;

(vi) the duration of the tax increment financing district's and any subdistrict's
existence;

(6) statements of the authority's alternate estimates of the impact of tax increment
financing on the net tax capacities of all taxing jurisdictions in which the tax increment
financing district is located in whole or in part. For purposes of one statement, the
authority shall assume that the estimated captured net tax capacity would be available to
the taxing jurisdictions without creation of the district, and for purposes of the second
statement, the authority shall assume that none of the estimated captured net tax capacity
would be available to the taxing jurisdictions without creation of the district or subdistrict;

(7) identification and description of studies and analyses used to make the
determination set forth in subdivision 3, clause (2); and

(8) identification of all parcels to be included in the district or any subdistrict.

Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 469.175, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Municipality approval.

(a) A county auditor shall not certify the original
net tax capacity of a tax increment financing district until the tax increment financing plan
proposed for that district has been approved by the municipality in which the district
is located. If an authority that proposes to establish a tax increment financing district
and the municipality are not the same, the authority shall apply to the municipality in
which the district is proposed to be located and shall obtain the approval of its tax
increment financing plan by the municipality before the authority may use tax increment
financing. The municipality shall approve the tax increment financing plan only after a
public hearing thereon after published notice in a newspaper of general circulation in the
municipality at least once not less than ten days nor more than 30 days prior to the date
of the hearing. The published notice must include a map of the area of the district from
which increments may be collected and, if the project area includes additional area, a map
of the project area in which the increments may be expended. The hearing may be held
before or after the approval or creation of the project or it may be held in conjunction with
a hearing to approve the project.

(b) Before or at the time of approval of the tax increment financing plan, the
municipality shall make the following findings, and shall set forth in writing the reasons
and supporting facts for each determination:

(1) that the proposed tax increment financing district is a redevelopment district, a
renewal or renovation district, a housing district, a soils condition district, or an economic
development district; if the proposed district is a redevelopment district or a renewal or
renovation district, the reasons and supporting facts for the determination that the district
meets the criteria of section 469.174, subdivision 10, paragraph (a), clauses (1) and (2), or
subdivision 10a, must be documented in writing and retained and made available to the
public by the authority until the district has been terminated;

(2) that, in the opinion of the municipality:

(i) the proposed development or redevelopment would not reasonably be expected to
occur solely through private investment within the reasonably foreseeable future; and

(ii) the increased market value of the site that could reasonably be expected to
occur without the use of tax increment financing would be less than the increase in the
market value estimated to result from the proposed development after subtracting the
present value of the projected tax increments for the maximum duration of the district
permitted by the plan. The requirements of this item do not apply if the district is a
deleted text begin qualifieddeleted text end housing district;

(3) that the tax increment financing plan conforms to the general plan for the
development or redevelopment of the municipality as a whole;

(4) that the tax increment financing plan will afford maximum opportunity,
consistent with the sound needs of the municipality as a whole, for the development or
redevelopment of the project by private enterprise;

(5) that the municipality elects the method of tax increment computation set forth in
section 469.177, subdivision 3, paragraph (b), if applicable.

(c) When the municipality and the authority are not the same, the municipality shall
approve or disapprove the tax increment financing plan within 60 days of submission by
the authority. When the municipality and the authority are not the same, the municipality
may not amend or modify a tax increment financing plan except as proposed by the
authority pursuant to subdivision 4. Once approved, the determination of the authority
to undertake the project through the use of tax increment financing and the resolution of
the governing body shall be conclusive of the findings therein and of the public need for
the financing.

(d) For a district that is subject to the requirements of paragraph (b), clause (2),
item (ii), the municipality's statement of reasons and supporting facts must include all of
the following:

(1) an estimate of the amount by which the market value of the site will increase
without the use of tax increment financing;

(2) an estimate of the increase in the market value that will result from the
development or redevelopment to be assisted with tax increment financing; and

(3) the present value of the projected tax increments for the maximum duration of
the district permitted by the tax increment financing plan.

(e) For purposes of this subdivision, "site" means the parcels on which the
development or redevelopment to be assisted with tax increment financing will be located.

expenditures for activities in the district.

(d) The authority may elect, in the tax increment financing plan for the district,
to increase by up to ten percentage points the permitted amount of expenditures for
activities located outside the geographic area of the district under paragraph (a). As
permitted by section 469.176, subdivision 4k, the expenditures, including the permitted
expenditures under paragraph (a), need not be made within the geographic area of the
project. Expenditures that meet the requirements of this paragraph are legally permitted
expenditures of the district, notwithstanding section 469.176, subdivisions 4b, 4c, and 4j.
To qualify for the increase under this paragraph, the expenditures must:

(1) be used exclusively to assist housing that meets the requirement for a qualified
low-income building, as that term is used in section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code;

(2) not exceed the qualified basis of the housing, as defined under section 42(c) of
the Internal Revenue Code, less the amount of any credit allowed under section 42 of
the Internal Revenue Code; and

(3) be used to:

(i) acquire and prepare the site of the housing;

(ii) acquire, construct, or rehabilitate the housing; or

(iii) make public improvements directly related to the housing.

(e) For a district created within a biotechnology and health sciences industry zone
as defined in section 469.330, subdivision 6, or for an existing district located within

Minnesota Statutes 2006, 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.new text begin 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.
new text end

(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 section 273.18 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, or because platted, unimproved property is
improved or market value is increased after approval of the plat under section 273.11,
subdivision 14
, 14a, or 14b, the increase in net tax capacity must be added to the original
net tax capacity.

(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 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 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 buildingnew text begin or improvements
described in section 469.174, subdivision 10, paragraph (e),
new text end that deleted text beginwasdeleted text endnew text begin werenew text end 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), new text beginor by improvements under

parcel, or (2) the estimated market value of the parcel for the year in which the building
deleted text begin wasdeleted text end new text beginor other improvements were new text enddemolished or removed, but applying the class 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.

rates enacted in the 1997 and 1998 legislative sessions.

(c) The city has agreed to transfer any available increments from other tax increment
financing districts in the city to pay the preexisting obligations of the district under section
469.1763, subdivision 6. This requirement does not apply to any available increments of a

preexisting obligations and reasonable administrative expenses of the authority for the tax
increment financing district. The tax increment financing district must be decertified when

The board of a district may issue general obligation certificates of indebtedness
or capital notes subject to the district debt limits to: (a) purchase vehicles, computers,
telephone systems, cable equipment, photocopy and office equipment, technological
equipment for instruction, and other capital equipment having an expected useful life at
least as long as the terms of the certificates or notes; (b) purchase computer hardware and

equipment or unbundled, together with application development services and training
related to the use of the computer; and (c) prepay special assessments. The certificates or

and in the manner determined by the board, except that certificates or notes issued to
prepay special assessments must be payable in not more than 20 years. The certificates
or notes may be issued by resolution and without the requirement for an election. The
certificates or notes are general obligation bonds for purposes of section 126C.55. A tax
levy must be made for the payment of the principal and interest on the certificates or
notes, in accordance with section 475.61, as in the case of bonds. The sum of the tax
levies under this section and section 123B.62 for each year must not exceed the lesser
of the amount of the district's total operating capital revenue or the sum of the district's
levy in the general and community service funds excluding the adjustments under this
section for the year preceding the year the initial debt service levies are certified. The
district's general fund levy for each year must be reduced by the sum of (1) the amount
of the tax levies for debt service certified for each year for payment of the principal and
interest on the certificates or notes issued under this section as required by section 475.61,
(2) the amount of the tax levies for debt service certified for each year for payment of the
principal and interest on bonds issued under section 123B.62, and (3) any excess amount
in the debt redemption fund used to retire bonds, certificates, or notes issued under this
section or section 123B.62 after April 1, 1997, other than amounts used to pay capitalized
interest. If the district's general fund levy is less than the amount of the reduction, the
balance shall be deducted first from the district's community service fund levy, and next
from the district's general fund or community service fund levies for the following year. A
district using an excess amount in the debt redemption fund to retire the certificates or
notes shall report the amount used for this purpose to the commissioner by July 15 of the
following fiscal year. A district having an outstanding capital loan under section 126C.69
or an outstanding debt service loan under section 126C.68 must not use an excess amount
in the debt redemption fund to retire the certificates or notes.
