Sec. 9.

Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 290.06, subdivision 22, is amended to read:


Subd. 22.

Credit for taxes paid to another state.

(a) A taxpayer who is liable for
taxes based on net income to another state, as provided in paragraphs (b) through (f),
upon income allocated or apportioned to Minnesota, is entitled to a credit for the tax paid
to another state if the tax is actually paid in the taxable year or a subsequent taxable
year. A taxpayer who is a resident of this state pursuant to section 290.01, subdivision
7
, paragraph (b)new text begin or (d)new text end, and who is subject to income tax as a resident in the state of
the individual's domicile is not allowed this credit unless the state of domicile does not
allow a similar credit.

(b) For an individual, estate, or trust, the credit is determined by multiplying the tax
payable under this chapter by the ratio derived by dividing the income subject to tax in the
other state that is also subject to tax in Minnesota while a resident of Minnesota by the
taxpayer's federal adjusted gross income, as defined in section 62 of the Internal Revenue
Code, modified by the addition required by section 290.01, subdivision 19a, clause (1),
and the subtraction allowed by section 290.01, subdivision 19b, clause (1), to the extent
the income is allocated or assigned to Minnesota under sections 290.081 and 290.17.

(c) If the taxpayer is an athletic team that apportions all of its income under section
290.17, subdivision 5, the credit is determined by multiplying the tax payable under this
chapter by the ratio derived from dividing the total net income subject to tax in the other
state by the taxpayer's Minnesota taxable income.

(d) The credit determined under paragraph (b) or (c) shall not exceed the amount of
tax so paid to the other state on the gross income earned within the other state subject to
tax under this chapter, nor shall the allowance of the credit reduce the taxes paid under
this chapter to an amount less than what would be assessed if such income amount was
excluded from taxable net income.

(e) In the case of the tax assessed on a lump-sum distribution under section
290.032, the credit allowed under paragraph (a) is the tax assessed by the other state on
the lump-sum distribution that is also subject to tax under section 290.032, and shall
not exceed the tax assessed under section 290.032. To the extent the total lump-sum
distribution defined in section 290.032, subdivision 1, includes lump-sum distributions
received in prior years or is all or in part an annuity contract, the reduction to the tax on
the lump-sum distribution allowed under section 290.032, subdivision 2, includes tax paid
to another state that is properly apportioned to that distribution.

(f) If a Minnesota resident reported an item of income to Minnesota and is assessed
tax in such other state on that same income after the Minnesota statute of limitations
has expired, the taxpayer shall receive a credit for that year under paragraph (a),
notwithstanding any statute of limitations to the contrary. The claim for the credit must
be submitted within one year from the date the taxes were paid to the other state. The
taxpayer must submit sufficient proof to show entitlement to a credit.

(g) For the purposes of this subdivision, a resident shareholder of a corporation
treated as an "S" corporation under section 290.9725, must be considered to have paid
a tax imposed on the shareholder in an amount equal to the shareholder's pro rata share
of any net income tax paid by the S corporation to another state. For the purposes of the
preceding sentence, the term "net income tax" means any tax imposed on or measured by
a corporation's net income.

(h) For the purposes of this subdivision, a resident partner of an entity taxed as a
partnership under the Internal Revenue Code must be considered to have paid a tax imposed
on the partner in an amount equal to the partner's pro rata share of any net income tax paid
by the partnership to another state. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the term "net
income" tax means any tax imposed on or measured by a partnership's net income.

(i) For the purposes of this subdivision, "another state":

(1) includes:

(i) the District of Columbia; and

(ii) a province or territory of Canada; but

(2) excludes Puerto Rico and the several territories organized by Congress.

(j) The limitations on the credit in paragraphs (b), (c), and (d), are imposed on a
state by state basis.

(k) For a tax imposed by a province or territory of Canada, the tax for purposes of
this subdivision is the excess of the tax over the amount of the foreign tax credit allowed
under section 27 of the Internal Revenue Code. In determining the amount of the foreign
tax credit allowed, the net income taxes imposed by Canada on the income are deducted
first. Any remaining amount of the allowable foreign tax credit reduces the provincial or
territorial tax that qualifies for the credit under this subdivision.

(11) For purposes of calculating the tax preference for accelerated depreciation or

57(a)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code, the deduction allowable for the taxable year is the
deduction allowed under section 290.01, subdivision 19e.

For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2000, the amount of any remaining
modification made under section 290.01, subdivision 19e, not previously deducted is a
depreciation or amortization allowance in the first taxable year after December 31, 2004.

(12) For purposes of calculating the adjustment for adjusted current earnings in

individuals, estates, trusts, nonresident partners of partnerships, nonresident shareholders
of corporations treated as "S" corporations under section 290.9725, and all corporations
not having such an election in effect. If a partnership or corporation would not otherwise
be subject to the allocation rules, but conducts a trade or business that is part of a
unitary business involving another legal entity that is subject to the allocation rules, the
partnership or corporation is subject to the allocation rules.

(b) Expenses, losses, and other deductions (referred to collectively in this paragraph
as "deductions") must be allocated along with the item or class of gross income to which
they are definitely related for purposes of assignment under this section or apportionment
under section 290.191, 290.20, or 290.36. Deductions definitely related to any item of gross
income assigned under subdivision 2, paragraph (e), are assigned to the taxpayer's domicile.

(c) In the case of an individual who is a resident for only part of a taxable year,
the individual's income, gains, losses, and deductions from the distributive share of a
partnership, S corporation, trust, or estate are not subject to allocation outside this state
to the extent of the distributive share multiplied by a ratio, the numerator of which is
the number of days the individual was a resident of this state during the tax year of the
partnership, S corporation, trust, or estate, and the denominator of which is the number of

Subd. 4.

Unitary business principle.

(a) If a trade or business conducted wholly
within this state or partly within and partly without this state is part of a unitary business,
the entire income of the unitary business is subject to apportionment pursuant to section
290.191. Notwithstanding subdivision 2, paragraph (c), none of the income of a unitary
business is considered to be derived from any particular source and none may be allocated
to a particular place except as provided by the applicable apportionment formula. The
provisions of this subdivision do not apply to business income subject to subdivision 5,
income of an insurance company, or income of an investment company determined under
section 290.36.

(b) The term "unitary business" means business activities or operations which
result in a flow of value between them. The term may be applied within a single legal
entity or between multiple entities and without regard to whether each entity is a sole
proprietorship, a corporation, a partnership or a trust.

(c) Unity is presumed whenever there is unity of ownership, operation, and use,
evidenced by centralized management or executive force, centralized purchasing,
advertising, accounting, or other controlled interaction, but the absence of these
centralized activities will not necessarily evidence a nonunitary business. Unity is also
presumed when business activities or operations are of mutual benefit, dependent upon or
contributory to one another, either individually or as a group.

(d) Where a business operation conducted in Minnesota is owned by a business
entity that carries on business activity outside the state different in kind from that
conducted within this state, and the other business is conducted entirely outside the state, it
is presumed that the two business operations are unitary in nature, interrelated, connected,
and interdependent unless it can be shown to the contrary.

(e) Unity of ownership is not deemed to exist when a corporation is involved unless
that corporation is a member of a group of two or more business entities and more than 50
percent of the voting stock of each member of the group is directly or indirectly owned
by a common owner or by common owners, either corporate or noncorporate, or by one
or more of the member corporations of the group. For this purpose, the term "voting
stock" shall include membership interests of mutual insurance holding companies formed
under section 66A.40.

(f) The net income and apportionment factors under section 290.191 or 290.20 of
foreign corporations and other foreign entities which are part of a unitary business shall not

Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 290.191, subdivision 5, is amended to read:


Subd. 5.

Determination of sales factor.

For purposes of this section, the following
rules apply in determining the sales factor.

(a) The sales factor includes all sales, gross earnings, or receipts received in the
ordinary course of the business, except that the following types of income are not included
in the sales factor:

(1) interest;

(2) dividends;

(3) sales of capital assets as defined in section 1221 of the Internal Revenue Code;

(4) sales of property used in the trade or business, except sales of leased property of
a type which is regularly sold as well as leased;new text begin and

(5) sales of debt instruments as defined in section 1275(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue
Code or sales of stockdeleted text begin; anddeleted text endnew text begin.
new text end

deleted text begin (6) royalties, fees, or other like income of a type which qualify for a subtraction from
federal taxable income under section 290.01, subdivision 19d, clause (10).
deleted text end

(b) Sales of tangible personal property are made within this state if the property is
received by a purchaser at a point within this state, and the taxpayer is taxable in this state,
regardless of the f.o.b. point, other conditions of the sale, or the ultimate destination
of the property.

(c) Tangible personal property delivered to a common or contract carrier or foreign
vessel for delivery to a purchaser in another state or nation is a sale in that state or nation,
regardless of f.o.b. point or other conditions of the sale.

(d) Notwithstanding paragraphs (b) and (c), when intoxicating liquor, wine,
fermented malt beverages, cigarettes, or tobacco products are sold to a purchaser who is
licensed by a state or political subdivision to resell this property only within the state of
ultimate destination, the sale is made in that state.

(e) Sales made by or through a corporation that is qualified as a domestic
international sales corporation under section 992 of the Internal Revenue Code are not
considered to have been made within this state.

(f) Sales, rents, royalties, and other income in connection with real property is
attributed to the state in which the property is located.

(g) Receipts from the lease or rental of tangible personal property, including finance
leases and true leases, must be attributed to this state if the property is located in this
state and to other states if the property is not located in this state. Receipts from the
lease or rental of moving property including, but not limited to, motor vehicles, rolling
stock, aircraft, vessels, or mobile equipment are included in the numerator of the receipts
factor to the extent that the property is used in this state. The extent of the use of moving
property is determined as follows:

(1) A motor vehicle is used wholly in the state in which it is registered.

(2) The extent that rolling stock is used in this state is determined by multiplying
the receipts from the lease or rental of the rolling stock by a fraction, the numerator of
which is the miles traveled within this state by the leased or rented rolling stock and the
denominator of which is the total miles traveled by the leased or rented rolling stock.

(3) The extent that an aircraft is used in this state is determined by multiplying the
receipts from the lease or rental of the aircraft by a fraction, the numerator of which is
the number of landings of the aircraft in this state and the denominator of which is the
total number of landings of the aircraft.

(4) The extent that a vessel, mobile equipment, or other mobile property is used in
the state is determined by multiplying the receipts from the lease or rental of the property
by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days during the taxable year the
property was in this state and the denominator of which is the total days in the taxable year.

(h) Royalties and other income not described in paragraph (a), clause (6), received
for the use of or for the privilege of using intangible property, including patents,
know-how, formulas, designs, processes, patterns, copyrights, trade names, service names,
franchises, licenses, contracts, customer lists, or similar items, must be attributed to the
state in which the property is used by the purchaser. If the property is used in more
than one state, the royalties or other income must be apportioned to this state pro rata
according to the portion of use in this state. If the portion of use in this state cannot be
determined, the royalties or other income must be excluded from both the numerator
and the denominator. Intangible property is used in this state if the purchaser uses the
intangible property or the rights therein in the regular course of its business operations in
this state, regardless of the location of the purchaser's customers.

(i) Sales of intangible property are made within the state in which the property is
used by the purchaser. If the property is used in more than one state, the sales must be
apportioned to this state pro rata according to the portion of use in this state. If the
portion of use in this state cannot be determined, the sale must be excluded from both the
numerator and the denominator of the sales factor. Intangible property is used in this
state if the purchaser used the intangible property in the regular course of its business
operations in this state.

(j) Receipts from the performance of services must be attributed to the state where
the services are received. For the purposes of this section, receipts from the performance
of services provided to a corporation, partnership, or trust may only be attributed to a state
where it has a fixed place of doing business. If the state where the services are received is
not readily determinable or is a state where the corporation, partnership, or trust receiving
the service does not have a fixed place of doing business, the services shall be deemed
to be received at the location of the office of the customer from which the services were
ordered in the regular course of the customer's trade or business. If the ordering office
cannot be determined, the services shall be deemed to be received at the office of the
customer to which the services are billed.

(k) For the purposes of this subdivision and subdivision 6, paragraph (l), receipts
from management, distribution, or administrative services performed by a corporation
or trust for a fund of a corporation or trust regulated under United States Code, title 15,
sections 80a-1 through 80a-64, must be attributed to the state where the shareholder of
the fund resides. Under this paragraph, receipts for services attributed to shareholders are
determined on the basis of the ratio of: (1) the average of the outstanding shares in the
fund owned by shareholders residing within Minnesota at the beginning and end of each
year; and (2) the average of the total number of outstanding shares in the fund at the
beginning and end of each year. Residence of the shareholder, in the case of an individual,
is determined by the mailing address furnished by the shareholder to the fund. Residence
of the shareholder, when the shares are held by an insurance company as a depositor for
the insurance company policyholders, is the mailing address of the policyholders. In
the case of an insurance company holding the shares as a depositor for the insurance
company policyholders, if the mailing address of the policyholders cannot be determined
by the taxpayer, the receipts must be excluded from both the numerator and denominator.
Residence of other shareholders is the mailing address of the shareholder.

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 yearnew text begin other than the rebate
allowed under section 290.06, subdivision 36
new text end, 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. No apportionment or
reduction of the "property taxes payable" shall be required for the use of a portion of the
claimant's homestead for a business purpose if the claimant does not deduct any business
depreciation expenses for the use of a portion of the homestead in the determination of
federal adjusted gross income. For homesteads which are manufactured homes as defined
in section 273.125, subdivision 8, and for homesteads which are 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.

to convert raw ores to marketable quality. Such expenses include costs associated with
refinement but do not include expenses such as transportation, stockpiling, marketing, or
marine insurance that are incurred after marketable ores are produced, unless the expenses

(1) an erroneous report of taxable value by a local official;

(2) an erroneous calculation by the commissioner; and

(3) an increase or decrease in taxable value for commercial-industrial or seasonal
residential recreational property reported on the abstracts of tax lists submitted under

Subdivision 1.

Imposition.

(a) A tax is imposed on distributors on the sale of
cigarettes by a cigarette distributor to a retailer or cigarette subjobber for resale in this
state. The tax is equal to 6.5 percent of the weighted average retail price and must be
expressed in cents per pack rounded to the nearest one-tenth of a cent. The weighted
average retail price must be determined annually, with new rates published by November
1, and effective for sales on or after January 1 of the following year. The weighted average
retail price must be established by surveying cigarette retailers statewide in a manner
and time determined by the commissioner. The commissioner shall make an inflation
adjustment in accordance with the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers inflation
indicator as published in the most recent state budget forecast. The commissioner shall use
the inflation factor for the calendar year in which the new tax rate takes effect. If the survey
indicates that the average retail price of cigarettes has not increased relative to the average
retail price in the previous year's survey, then the commissioner shall not make an inflation
adjustment. The determination of the commissioner pursuant to this subdivision is not a
"rule" and is not subject to the Administrative Procedure Act contained in chapter 14. For
packs of cigarettes with other than 20 cigarettes, the tax must be adjusted proportionally.

(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), deleted text beginand in lieu of a survey of cigarette retailers, the
tax calculation of the weighted average retail price for the sales of cigarettes from August
1, 2011, through December 31, 2011, shall be calculated by: (1) increasing the average
retail price per pack of 20 cigarettes from the most recent survey by the percentage change
in a weighted average of the presumed legal prices for cigarettes during the year after
completion of that survey, as reported and published by the Department of Commerce
under section 325D.371; (2) subtracting the sales tax included in the retail price; and (3)
adjusting for expected inflation. The rate must be published by May 1 and is effective for
sales after July 31. If the weighted average of the presumed legal prices indicates that
the average retail price of cigarettes has not increased relative to the average retail price
in the most recent survey, then no inflation adjustment must be made
