PROPERTY TAXES AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT AIDS

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 272.02, subdivision 7, is amended to read:


Subd. 7.

Institutions of public charity.

(a) Institutions of purely public charity that are
exempt from federal income taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
are exempt if they meet the requirements of this subdivision. In determining whether real
property is exempt under this subdivision, the following factors must be considered:

(1) whether the stated purpose of the undertaking is to be helpful to others without
immediate expectation of material reward;

(2) whether the institution of public charity is supported by material donations, gifts, or
government grants for services to the public in whole or in part;

(3) whether a material number of the recipients of the charity receive benefits or services
at reduced or no cost, or whether the organization provides services to the public that alleviate
burdens or responsibilities that would otherwise be borne by the government;

(4) whether the income received, including material gifts and donations, produces a
profit to the charitable institution that is not distributed to private interests;

(5) whether the beneficiaries of the charity are restricted or unrestricted, and, if restricted,
whether the class of persons to whom the charity is made available is one having a reasonable
relationship to the charitable objectives; and

(6) whether dividends, in form or substance, or assets upon dissolution, are not available
to private interests.

A charitable organization must satisfy the factors in clauses (1) to (6) for its property to
be exempt under this subdivision, unless there is a reasonable justification for failing to
meet the factors in clause (2), (3), or (5), and the organization provides to the assessor the
factual basis for that justification. If there is reasonable justification for failing to meet the
factors in clause (2), (3), or (5), an organization is a purely public charity under this
subdivision without meeting those factors. After an exemption is properly granted under
this subdivision, it will remain in effect unless there is a material change in facts.

(b) For purposes of this subdivision, a grant is a written instrument or electronic document
defining a legal relationship between a granting agency and a grantee when the principal
purpose of the relationship is to transfer cash or something of value to the grantee to support
a public purpose authorized by law in a general manner instead of acquiring by professional
or technical contract, purchase, lease, or barter property or services for the direct benefit or
use of the granting agency.

new text begin (c) Rental housing property does not qualify for an exemption under this subdivision
unless: (1) its use is in furtherance of the tax-exempt charitable purpose of the organization;
and (2) its use does not further the tax-exempt charitable purpose of the organization solely
by providing rental housing to persons or families on the basis of the income characteristics
of those persons or families.

condition that specific units or a specific quantity of units be set aside for persons or families

Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 273.13, subdivision 22, is amended to read:


Subd. 22.

Class 1.

(a) Except as provided in subdivision 23 and in paragraphs (b) and
(c), real estate which is residential and used for homestead purposes is class 1a. In the case
of a duplex or triplex in which one of the units is used for homestead purposes, the entire
property is deemed to be used for homestead purposes. The market value of class 1a property
must be determined based upon the value of the house, garage, and land.

The first $500,000 of market value of class 1a property has a net classification rate of
one percent of its market value; and the market value of class 1a property that exceeds
$500,000 has a classification rate of 1.25 percent of its market value.

(b) Class 1b property includes homestead real estate or homestead manufactured homes
used for the purposes of a homestead by:

(1) any person who is blind as defined in section 256D.35, or the person who is blind
and the spouse of the person who is blind;

(2) any person who is permanently and totally disabled or by the person with a disability
and the spouse of the person with a disability; or

(3) the surviving spouse of a veteran who was permanently and totally disabled
homesteading a property classified under this paragraph for taxes payable in 2008.

Property is classified and assessed under clause (2) only if the government agency or
income-providing source certifies, upon the request of the homestead occupant, that the
homestead occupant satisfies the disability requirements of this paragraph, and that the
property is not eligible for the valuation exclusion under subdivision 34.

Property is classified and assessed under paragraph (b) only if the commissioner of
revenue or the county assessor certifies that the homestead occupant satisfies the requirements
of this paragraph.

Permanently and totally disabled for the purpose of this subdivision means a condition
which is permanent in nature and totally incapacitates the person from working at an
occupation which brings the person an income. The first $50,000 market value of class 1b
property has a net classification rate of .45 percent of its market value. The remaining market
value of class 1b property is classified as class 1a or class 2a property, whichever is
appropriate.

(c) Class 1c property is commercial use real and personal property that abuts public
water as defined in section 103G.005, subdivision 15, or abuts a state trail administered by
the Department of Natural Resources, and is devoted to temporary and seasonal residential
occupancy for recreational purposes but not devoted to commercial purposes for more than
250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment, and that includes a portion used as
a homestead by the owner, which includes a dwelling occupied as a homestead by a
shareholder of a corporation that owns the resort, a partner in a partnership that owns the
resort, or a member of a limited liability company that owns the resort even if the title to
the homestead is held by the corporation, partnership, or limited liability company. For
purposes of this paragraph, property is devoted to a commercial purpose on a specific day
if any portion of the property, excluding the portion used exclusively as a homestead, is
used for residential occupancy and a fee is charged for residential occupancy. Class 1c
property must contain three or more rental units. A "rental unit" is defined as a cabin,
condominium, townhouse, sleeping room, or individual camping site equipped with water
and electrical hookups for recreational vehicles. Class 1c property must provide recreational
activities such as the rental of ice fishing houses, boats and motors, snowmobiles, downhill
or cross-country ski equipment; provide marina services, launch services, or guide services;
or sell bait and fishing tackle. Any unit in which the right to use the property is transferred
to an individual or entity by deeded interest, or the sale of shares or stock, no longer qualifies
for class 1c even though it may remain available for rent. A camping pad offered for rent
by a property that otherwise qualifies for class 1c is also class 1c, regardless of the term of
the rental agreement, as long as the use of the camping pad does not exceed 250 days. If
the same owner owns two separate parcels that are located in the same township, and one
of those properties is classified as a class 1c property and the other would be eligible to be
classified as a class 1c property if it was used as the homestead of the owner, both properties
will be assessed as a single class 1c property; for purposes of this sentence, properties are
deemed to be owned by the same owner if each of them is owned by a limited liability
company, and both limited liability companies have the same membership. The portion of
the property used as a homestead is class 1a property under paragraph (a). The remainder
of the property is classified as follows: the first deleted text begin $600,000deleted text end new text begin $1,100,000new text end of market value is tier
I, the next deleted text begin $1,700,000deleted text end new text begin $2,600,000new text end of market value is tier II, and any remaining market value
is tier III. The classification rates for class 1c are: tier I, 0.50 percent; tier II, 1.0 percent;
and tier III, 1.25 percent. Owners of real and personal property devoted to temporary and
seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes in which all or a portion of the
property was devoted to commercial purposes for not more than 250 days in the year
preceding the year of assessment desiring classification as class 1c, must submit a declaration
to the assessor designating the cabins or units occupied for 250 days or less in the year
preceding the year of assessment by January 15 of the assessment year. Those cabins or
units and a proportionate share of the land on which they are located must be designated as
class 1c as otherwise provided. The remainder of the cabins or units and a proportionate
share of the land on which they are located must be designated as class 3a commercial. The
owner of property desiring designation as class 1c property must provide guest registers or
other records demonstrating that the units for which class 1c designation is sought were not
occupied for more than 250 days in the year preceding the assessment if so requested. The
portion of a property operated as a (1) restaurant, (2) bar, (3) gift shop, (4) conference center
or meeting room, and (5) other nonresidential facility operated on a commercial basis not
directly related to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes
does not qualify for class 1c.

(d) Class 1d property includes structures that meet all of the following criteria:

(1) the structure is located on property that is classified as agricultural property under
section 273.13, subdivision 23;

(2) the structure is occupied exclusively by seasonal farm workers during the time when
they work on that farm, and the occupants are not charged rent for the privilege of occupying
the property, provided that use of the structure for storage of farm equipment and produce
does not disqualify the property from classification under this paragraph;

(3) the structure meets all applicable health and safety requirements for the appropriate
season; and

(4) the structure is not salable as residential property because it does not comply with
local ordinances relating to location in relation to streets or roads.

The market value of class 1d property has the same classification rates as class 1a property
under paragraph (a).

Sec. 6.

Minnesota Statutes 2023 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 25, is amended
to read:


Subd. 25.

Class 4.

(a) Class 4a is residential real estate containing four or more units
and used or held for use by the owner or by the tenants or lessees of the owner as a residence
for rental periods of 30 days or more, excluding property qualifying for class 4d. Class 4a
also includes hospitals licensed under sections 144.50 to 144.56, other than hospitals exempt
under section 272.02, and contiguous property used for hospital purposes, without regard
to whether the property has been platted or subdivided. The market value of class 4a property
has a classification rate of 1.25 percent.

(b) Class 4b includes:

(1) residential real estate containing less than four units, including property rented as a
short-term rental property for more than 14 days in the preceding year, that does not qualify
as class 4bb, other than seasonal residential recreational property;

(2) manufactured homes not classified under any other provision;

(3) a dwelling, garage, and surrounding one acre of property on a nonhomestead farm
classified under subdivision 23, paragraph (b) containing two or three units; and

(4) unimproved property that is classified residential as determined under subdivision
33.

For the purposes of this paragraph, "short-term rental property" means nonhomestead
residential real estate rented for periods of less than 30 consecutive days.

The market value of class 4b property has a classification rate of 1.25 percent.

(c) Class 4bb includes:

(1) nonhomestead residential real estate containing one unit, other than seasonal
residential recreational property;

(2) a single family dwelling, garage, and surrounding one acre of property on a
nonhomestead farm classified under subdivision 23, paragraph (b); and

(3) a condominium-type storage unit having an individual property identification number
that is not used for a commercial purpose.

Class 4bb property has the same classification rates as class 1a property under subdivision
22.

Property that has been classified as seasonal residential recreational property at any time
during which it has been owned by the current owner or spouse of the current owner does
not qualify for class 4bb.

(d) Class 4c property includes:

(1) except as provided in subdivision 22, paragraph (c), real and personal property
devoted to commercial temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes,
for not more than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment. For purposes of
this clause, property is devoted to a commercial purpose on a specific day if any portion of
the property is used for residential occupancy, and a fee is charged for residential occupancy.
Class 4c property under this clause must contain three or more rental units. A "rental unit"
is defined as a cabin, condominium, townhouse, sleeping room, or individual camping site
equipped with water and electrical hookups for recreational vehicles. A camping pad offered
for rent by a property that otherwise qualifies for class 4c under this clause is also class 4c
under this clause regardless of the term of the rental agreement, as long as the use of the
camping pad does not exceed 250 days. In order for a property to be classified under this
clause, either (i) the business located on the property must provide recreational activities,
at least 40 percent of the annual gross lodging receipts related to the property must be from
business conducted during 90 consecutive days, and either (A) at least 60 percent of all paid
bookings by lodging guests during the year must be for periods of at least two consecutive
nights; or (B) at least 20 percent of the annual gross receipts must be from charges for
providing recreational activities, or (ii) the business must contain 20 or fewer rental units,
and must be located in a township or a city with a population of 2,500 or less located outside
the metropolitan area, as defined under section 473.121, subdivision 2, that contains a portion
of a state trail administered by the Department of Natural Resources. For purposes of item
(i)(A), a paid booking of five or more nights shall be counted as two bookings. Class 4c
property also includes commercial use real property used exclusively for recreational
purposes in conjunction with other class 4c property classified under this clause and devoted
to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreational purposes, up to a total of
two acres, provided the property is not devoted to commercial recreational use for more
than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment and is located within two miles
of the class 4c property with which it is used. In order for a property to qualify for
classification under this clause, the owner must submit a declaration to the assessor
designating the cabins or units occupied for 250 days or less in the year preceding the year
of assessment by January 15 of the assessment year. Those cabins or units and a proportionate
share of the land on which they are located must be designated class 4c under this clause
as otherwise provided. The remainder of the cabins or units and a proportionate share of
the land on which they are located will be designated as class 3a. The owner of property
desiring designation as class 4c property under this clause must provide guest registers or
other records demonstrating that the units for which class 4c designation is sought were not
occupied for more than 250 days in the year preceding the assessment if so requested. The
portion of a property operated as a (1) restaurant, (2) bar, (3) gift shop, (4) conference center
or meeting room, and (5) other nonresidential facility operated on a commercial basis not
directly related to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes
does not qualify for class 4c. For the purposes of this paragraph, "recreational activities"
means renting ice fishing houses, boats and motors, snowmobiles, downhill or cross-country
ski equipment; providing marina services, launch services, or guide services; or selling bait
and fishing tackle;

(2) qualified property used as a golf course if:

(i) it is open to the public on a daily fee basis. It may charge membership fees or dues,
but a membership fee may not be required in order to use the property for golfing, and its
green fees for golfing must be comparable to green fees typically charged by municipal
courses; and

(ii) it meets the requirements of section 273.112, subdivision 3, paragraph (d).

A structure used as a clubhouse, restaurant, or place of refreshment in conjunction with
the golf course is classified as class 3a property;

(3) real property up to a maximum of three acres of land owned and used by a nonprofit
community service oriented organization and not used for residential purposes on either a
temporary or permanent basis, provided that:

(i) the property is not used for a revenue-producing activity for more than six days in
the calendar year preceding the year of assessment; or

(ii) the organization makes annual charitable contributions and donations at least equal
to the property's previous year's property taxes and the property is allowed to be used for
public and community meetings or events for no charge, as appropriate to the size of the
facility.

For purposes of this clause:

payment of taxes, assessments, fees, auditing costs, and utility payments;

(B) "property taxes" excludes the state general tax;

(C) a "nonprofit community service oriented organization" means any corporation,

use of the property for social events open exclusively to members and their guests for periods
of less than 24 hours, when an admission is not charged nor any revenues are received by
the organization shall not be considered a revenue-producing activity.

The organization shall maintain records of its charitable contributions and donations
and of public meetings and events held on the property and make them available upon
request any time to the assessor to ensure eligibility. An organization meeting the requirement
under item (ii) must file an application by May 1 with the assessor for eligibility for the
current year's assessment. The commissioner shall prescribe a uniform application form
and instructions;

60 days of the sale;

If the county levy under clause (2) 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 a town or the state general tax, the final tax shall also be its proposed tax
unless the town changes its levy at a special town meeting under section 365.52. If a school
district has certified under section 126C.17, subdivision 9, that a referendum will be held

capacity subject to the areawide tax must each be stated separately and not included in the
sum of the special taxing districts; and

(3) the increase or decrease between the total taxes payable in the current year and the
total proposed taxes, expressed as a percentage.

For purposes of this section, 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.

(e) The notice must clearly state that the proposed or final taxes do not include the
following:

(1) special assessments;

(2) levies approved by the voters after the date the proposed taxes are certified, including
bond referenda and school district levy referenda;

(6) the contamination tax imposed on properties which received market value reductions
for contamination.

(f) Except as provided in subdivision 7, failure of the county auditor to prepare or the
county treasurer to deliver the notice as required in this section does not invalidate the
proposed or final tax levy or the taxes payable pursuant to the tax levy.

(g) If the notice the taxpayer receives under this section lists the property as
nonhomestead, and satisfactory documentation is provided to the county assessor by the
applicable deadline, and the property qualifies for the homestead classification in that
assessment year, the assessor shall reclassify the property to homestead for taxes payable
in the following year.

(h) In the case of class 4 residential property used as a residence for lease or rental
periods of 30 days or more, the taxpayer must either:

(1) mail or deliver a copy of the notice of proposed property taxes to each tenant, renter,
or lessee; or

The notice must be mailed or posted by the taxpayer by November 27 or within three
days of receipt of the notice, whichever is later. A taxpayer may notify the county treasurer
of the address of the taxpayer, agent, caretaker, or manager of the premises to which the
notice must be mailed in order to fulfill the requirements of this paragraph.

(i) For purposes of this subdivision and subdivision 6, "metropolitan special taxing
districts" means the following taxing districts in the seven-county metropolitan area that
levy a property tax for any of the specified purposes listed below:

(1) Metropolitan Council under section 473.132, 473.167, 473.249, 473.325, 473.446,

county board, include supplemental information with the statement of proposed property
taxes about the impact of state aid increases or decreases on property tax increases or
decreases and on the level of services provided in the affected jurisdiction. This supplemental
information may include information for the following year, the current year, and for as
many consecutive preceding years as deemed appropriate by the governing body of the
county, city, or school district. It may include only information regarding:

(1) the impact of inflation as measured by the implicit price deflator for state and local
government purchases;

(2) population growth and decline;

(3) state or federal government action; and

(4) other financial factors that affect the level of property taxation and local services
that the governing body of the county, city, or school district may deem appropriate to
include.

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 tax statement must not state or imply that property tax
credits are paid by the state of Minnesota. 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.

(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 homestead market value exclusion under section 273.13, subdivision
35;

(3) the property's taxable market value under section 272.03, subdivision 15;

(4) the property's gross tax, before credits;

(5) for agricultural properties, the credits under sections 273.1384 and 273.1387;

(6) any credits received under sections 273.119; 273.1234 or 273.1235; 273.135;
new text begin 273.1389; new text end 273.1391; 273.1398, subdivision 4; 469.171; and 473H.10, except that the amount
of credit received under section 273.135 must be separately stated and identified as "taconite
tax relief"; and

(7) the net tax payable in the manner required in paragraph (a).

(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.

Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 297A.99, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Legislative authority required before voter approval; requirements for
adoption, use, termination.

(a) A political subdivision must receive legislative authority
to impose a local sales tax before submitting the tax for approval by voters of the political
subdivision. Imposition of a local sales tax is subject to approval by voters of the political
subdivision at a general election. The election must be conducted at a general election within
the two-year period after the governing body of the political subdivision has received
authority to impose the tax. If the authorizing legislation allows the tax to be imposed for
more than one project, there must be a separate question approving the use of the tax revenue
for each project. Notwithstanding the authorizing legislation, a project that is not approved
by the voters may not be funded with the local sales tax revenue and the termination date
of the tax set in the authorizing legislation must be reduced proportionately based on the
share of that project's cost to the total costs of all projects included in the authorizing
legislation.

(b) The proceeds of the tax must be dedicated exclusively to payment of the construction
and rehabilitation costs and associated bonding costs related to the specific capital
improvement projects that were approved by the voters under paragraph (a).

(c) The tax must terminate after the revenues raised are sufficient to fund the projects
approved by the voters under paragraph (a).

(d) After a sales tax imposed by a political subdivision has expired or been terminated,
the political subdivision is prohibited from imposing a local sales tax for a period of one
year.

(e) deleted text begin Notwithstanding paragraph (a), if a political subdivision received voter approval to
seek authority for a local sales tax at the November 6, 2018, general election and is granted
authority to impose a local sales tax before January 1, 2021, the tax may be imposed without
an additional referendum provided that it meets the requirements of subdivision 2 and the
list of specific projects contained in the resolution does not conflict with the projects listed
in the approving referendum.
deleted text end new text begin Beginning January 1, 2025, the reporting requirements under
section 297A.9902 apply to taxes authorized under special law or the requirements of this
section.
new text end

(f) If a tax is terminated because sufficient revenues have been raised, any amount of
tax collected under subdivision 9, after sufficient revenues have been raised and before the
quarterly termination required under subdivision 12, paragraph (a), that is greater than the
average quarterly revenues collected over the immediately preceding 12 calendar months
must be retained by the commissioner for deposit in the general fund.

new text begin (g) A political subdivision that receives special law authority to impose a tax must file
a certificate of local approval with the secretary of state in accordance with section 645.021,
subdivisions 2 and 3. If the tax is approved by the voters, the political subdivision must
impose the tax within 15 months of receiving such voter approval. If the tax is not imposed
within 15 months, the special law authority to impose the tax expires.
new text end

new text begin (h) Upon expiration of a tax authorized under this section or any other law, ordinance,
or city charter, the combined tax rate limit in section 297A.9901, subdivision 7, applies.
new text end

new text begin (i) If, after receiving voter approval, a political subdivision cancels a project approved
by the voters, the political subdivision must notify the commissioner. The commissioner
must proportionately decrease the maximum amount of tax revenue the political subdivision
may collect and must adjust the termination of the tax accordingly. If the political subdivision
has already collected revenue for the canceled project, the political subdivision must return
the funds to the commissioner for deposit into the local sales tax equalization distribution
account. The political subdivision must use any other source of revenue available to pay
any outstanding debt on the bonds that were issued for the canceled project.
