Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 270A.03, subdivision 5, is
amended to read:


Subd. 5.

Debt.

(a) "Debt" means a legal obligation of a natural person to pay a fixed and
certain amount of money, which equals or exceeds $25 and which is due and payable to a
claimant agency. The term includes criminal fines imposed under section 609.10 or 609.125,
fines imposed for petty misdemeanors as defined in section 609.02, subdivision 4a, and
restitution. A debt may arise under a contractual or statutory obligation, a court order, or
other legal obligation, but need not have been reduced to judgment.

A debt includes any legal obligation of a current recipient of assistance which is based
on overpayment of an assistance grant where that payment is based on a client waiver or
an administrative or judicial finding of an intentional program violation; or where the debt
is owed to a program wherein the debtor is not a client at the time notification is provided
to initiate recovery under this chapter and the debtor is not a current recipient of food support,
transitional child care, or transitional medical assistance.

(b) A debt does not include any legal obligation to pay a claimant agency for medical
care, including hospitalization if the income of the debtor at the time when the medical care
was rendered does not exceed the following amount:

(1) for an unmarried debtor, an income of deleted text begin$12,560deleted text end new text begin$13,180 new text endor less;

(6) for a debtor with five or more dependents, an income of deleted text begin$23,730deleted text end new text begin$24,900 new text endor less.

For purposes of this paragraph, "debtor" means the individual whose income, together
with the income of the individual's spouse, other than a separated spouse, brings the
individual within the income provisions of this paragraph. For purposes of this paragraph,
a spouse, other than a separated spouse, shall be considered a dependent.

(c) The commissioner shall adjust the income amounts in paragraph (b) by the percentage
determined pursuant to the provisions of section 1(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, except
that in section 1(f)(3)deleted text begin(B)deleted text end the word deleted text begin"2014"deleted text end new text begin"2017" new text endshall be substituted for the word deleted text begin"1992."

subsequent year, from the 12 months ending on August 31, 2014, to the 12 months ending
on August 31 of the year preceding the taxable year.

commissioner pursuant to this subdivision shall not be considered a "rule" and shall not be
subject to the Administrative Procedure Act contained in chapter 14. The income amount
as adjusted must be rounded to the nearest $10 amount. If the amount ends in $5, the amount
is rounded up to the nearest $10 amount.

(d) Debt also includes an agreement to pay a MinnesotaCare premium, regardless of the
dollar amount of the premium authorized under section 256L.15, subdivision 1a.

(2) an individual who is a Minnesota resident is not required to file a Minnesota income

(b) The decedent's final income tax return, and other income tax returns for prior years

Sec. 4.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 289A.08, subdivision 7, is amended to read:


Subd. 7.

Composite income tax returns for nonresident partners, shareholders, and
beneficiaries.

(a) The commissioner may allow a partnership with nonresident partners to
file a composite return and to pay the tax on behalf of nonresident partners who have no
other Minnesota source income. This composite return must include the names, addresses,
Social Security numbers, income allocation, and tax liability for the nonresident partners
electing to be covered by the composite return.

(b) The computation of a partner's tax liability must be determined by multiplying the
income allocated to that partner by the highest rate used to determine the tax liability for
individuals under section 290.06, subdivision 2c. Nonbusiness deductions, standard
deductions, or personal exemptions are not allowed.

(c) The partnership must submit a request to use this composite return filing method for
nonresident partners. The requesting partnership must file a composite return in the form
prescribed by the commissioner of revenue. The filing of a composite return is considered
a request to use the composite return filing method.

(d) The electing partner must not have any Minnesota source income other than the
income from the partnership and other electing partnerships. If it is determined that the
electing partner has other Minnesota source income, the inclusion of the income and tax
liability for that partner under this provision will not constitute a return to satisfy the
requirements of subdivision 1. The tax paid for the individual as part of the composite return
is allowed as a payment of the tax by the individual on the date on which the composite
return payment was made. If the electing nonresident partner has no other Minnesota source
income, filing of the composite return is a return for purposes of subdivision 1.

(e) This subdivision does not negate the requirement that an individual pay estimated
tax if the individual's liability would exceed the requirements set forth in section 289A.25.
The individual's liability to pay estimated tax is, however, satisfied when the partnership
pays composite estimated tax in the manner prescribed in section 289A.25.

(f) If an electing partner's share of the partnership's gross income from Minnesota sources
is less than the filing requirements for a nonresident under this subdivision, the tax liability
is zero. However, a statement showing the partner's share of gross income must be included
as part of the composite return.

(g) The election provided in this subdivision is only available to a partner who has no
other Minnesota source income and who is either (1) a full-year nonresident individual or
(2) a trust or estate that does not claim a deduction under either section 651 or 661 of the
Internal Revenue Code.

(h) A corporation defined in section 290.9725 and its nonresident shareholders may
make an election under this paragraph. The provisions covering the partnership apply to
the corporation and the provisions applying to the partner apply to the shareholder.

(i) Estates and trusts distributing current income only and the nonresident individual
beneficiaries of the estates or trusts may make an election under this paragraph. The
provisions covering the partnership apply to the estate or trust. The provisions applying to
the partner apply to the beneficiary.

of any law which refers to organizations exempt from income taxes.

(b) The tax shall be imposed on the taxable income of political organizations or
homeowner associations or the unrelated business taxable income, as defined in section 512
of the Internal Revenue Code, of organizations defined in section 511 of the Internal Revenue
Code, provided that the tax is not imposed on:

Internal Revenue Code, disregarding the limitation under section 170(b)(2), but only to the
extent the contributions are not deductible in computing federal taxable income.

The tax shall be at the corporate rates. The tax shall only be imposed on income and
deductions assignable to this state under sections 290.17 to 290.20. To the extent deducted
in computing federal taxable income, the deductions contained in section 290.21 shall not
be allowed in computing Minnesota taxable net income.

(c) The tax shall be imposed on organizations subject to federal tax under section

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 290.067, subdivision 1, is amended
to read:


Subdivision 1.

Amount of credit.

(a) A taxpayer may take as a credit against the tax
due from the taxpayer and a spouse, if any, under this chapter an amount equal to the
dependent care credit for which the taxpayer is eligible pursuant to the provisions of section
21 of the Internal Revenue Code except that in determining whether the child qualified as
a dependent, income received as a Minnesota family investment program grant or allowance
to or on behalf of the child must not be taken into account in determining whether the child
received more than half of the child's support from the taxpayer, and the provisions of
section 32(b)(1)(D) of the Internal Revenue Code do not apply.

(b) If a child who has not attained the age of six years at the close of the taxable year is
cared for at a licensed family day care home operated by the child's parent, the taxpayer is
deemed to have paid employment-related expenses. If the child is 16 months old or younger
at the close of the taxable year, the amount of expenses deemed to have been paid equals
the maximum limit for one qualified individual under section 21(c) and (d) of the Internal
Revenue Code. If the child is older than 16 months of age but has not attained the age of
six years at the close of the taxable year, the amount of expenses deemed to have been paid
equals the amount the licensee would charge for the care of a child of the same age for the
same number of hours of care.

(c) If a married couple:

(1) has a child who has not attained the age of one year at the close of the taxable year;

(2) files a joint tax return for the taxable year; and

(3) does not participate in a dependent care assistance program as defined in section 129
of the Internal Revenue Code, in lieu of the actual employment related expenses paid for
that child under paragraph (a) or the deemed amount under paragraph (b), the lesser of (i)
the combined earned income of the couple or (ii) the amount of the maximum limit for one
qualified individual under section 21(c) and (d) of the Internal Revenue Code will be deemed
to be the employment related expense paid for that child. The earned income limitation of
section 21(d) of the Internal Revenue Code shall not apply to this deemed amount. These
deemed amounts apply regardless of whether any employment-related expenses have been
paid.

(d) If the taxpayer is not required and does not file a federal individual income tax return
for the tax year, no credit is allowed for any amount paid to any person unless:

(1) the name, address, and taxpayer identification number of the person are included on
the return claiming the credit; or

(2) if the person is an organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue
Code and exempt from tax under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, the name
and address of the person are included on the return claiming the credit.

In the case of a failure to provide the information required under the preceding sentence,
the preceding sentence does not apply if it is shown that the taxpayer exercised due diligence
in attempting to provide the information required.

(e) In the case of a nonresident, part-year resident, or a person who has earned income
not subject to tax under this chapter including earned income excluded pursuant to section
290.0132, subdivision 10, the credit determined under section 21 of the Internal Revenue
Code must be allocated based on the ratio by which the earned income of the claimant and
the claimant's spouse from Minnesota sources bears to the total earned income of the claimant
and the claimant's spouse.

(f) For residents of Minnesota, the subtractions for military pay under section 290.0132,
subdivisions 11
and 12, are not considered "earned income not subject to tax under this
chapter."

(g) For residents of Minnesota, the exclusion of combat pay under section 112 of the
Internal Revenue Code is not considered "earned income not subject to tax under this
chapter."

(h) For taxpayers with federal adjusted gross income in excess of deleted text begin$50,000deleted text endnew text begin $50,990new text end, the
credit is equal to the lesser of the credit otherwise calculated under this subdivision, or the
amount equal to $600 minus five percent of federal adjusted gross income in excess of

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 290.17, subdivision 2, is amended
to read:


Subd. 2.

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) and (a)(3), income from wages as defined in section
3401(a) deleted text beginanddeleted text endnew text begin,new text end (f)new text begin, and (i)new text end 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 item (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.

(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 an interest in a single member limited liability company that is
disregarded for federal income tax purposes is allocable to this state as if the single member
limited liability company did not exist and the assets of the limited liability company are
personally owned by the sole member.

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 allocable 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
be conducting a trade or business.

trade or business of the taxpayer does not consist principally of the holding of the stocks
and the collection of income and gain therefrom.

(c) The dividend deduction provided in this subdivision shall be allowed only with
respect to dividends that are included in a corporation's Minnesota taxable net income for

a corporation which, for the taxable year of the corporation in which the distribution is made

The dividend deduction provided in this subdivision does not apply to a dividend received
from a real estate investment trust as defined in section 856 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The dividend deduction provided in this subdivision applies to the amount of regulated
investment company dividends only to the extent determined under section 854(b) of the
Internal Revenue Code.

The dividend deduction provided in this subdivision shall not be allowed with respect
to any dividend for which a deduction is not allowed under the provisions of section 246(c)new text begin

the provisions of Public Law 86-272 are included as income on the return of an affiliated
corporation permitted or required to file a combined report under section 290.17, subdivision
4
, or 290.34, subdivision 2, then for purposes of this subdivision the determination as to
whether the trade or business of the corporation consists principally of the holding of stocks
and the collection of income and gains therefrom shall be made with reference to the trade
or business of the affiliated corporation having a nexus with Minnesota.

(e) The deduction provided by this subdivision does not apply if the dividends are paid
by a FSC as defined in section 922 of the Internal Revenue Code.

(f) If one or more of the members of the unitary group whose income is included on the
combined report received a dividend, the deduction under this subdivision for each member
of the unitary business required to file a return under this chapter is the product of: (1) 100
percent of the dividends received by members of the group; (2) the percentage allowed

Subd. 5.

Credit allowed.

(a)(1) A qualified investor or qualified fund is eligible for a
credit equal to 25 percent of the qualified investment in a qualified small business.
Investments made by a pass-through entity qualify for a credit only if the entity is a qualified
fund. The commissioner must not allocate more than deleted text begin$15,000,000deleted text endnew text begin $5,000,000new text end in credits to
qualified investors or qualified funds for taxable years beginning after December 31, deleted text begin2013deleted text endnew text begin

to qualified investors or qualified funds for taxable years beginning after December 31,
2016, and before January 1, 2018
deleted text endnew text begin 2019new text end; and

(2) deleted text beginfor taxable years beginning after December 31, 2014, and before January 1, 2018,
deleted text end 50 percent must be allocated to credits for qualifying investments in qualified greater
Minnesota businesses and minority- or women-owned qualified small businesses in
Minnesota. Any portion of a taxable year's credits that is reserved for qualifying investments
in greater Minnesota businesses and minority- or women-owned qualified small businesses
in Minnesota that is not allocated by September 30 of the taxable year is available for
allocation to other credit applications beginning on October 1. Any portion of a taxable
year's credits that is not allocated by the commissioner does not cancel and may be carried
forward to subsequent taxable years until all credits have been allocated.

(b) The commissioner may not allocate more than a total maximum amount in credits
for a taxable year to a qualified investor for the investor's cumulative qualified investments
as an individual qualified investor and as an investor in a qualified fund; for married couples
filing joint returns the maximum is $250,000, and for all other filers the maximum is
$125,000. The commissioner may not allocate more than a total of $1,000,000 in credits
over all taxable years for qualified investments in any one qualified small business.

(c) The commissioner may not allocate a credit to a qualified investor either as an
individual qualified investor or as an investor in a qualified fund if, at the time the investment
is proposed:

(1) the investor is an officer or principal of the qualified small business; or

(2) the investor, either individually or in combination with one or more members of the
investor's family, owns, controls, or holds the power to vote 20 percent or more of the
outstanding securities of the qualified small business.

A member of the family of an individual disqualified by this paragraph is not eligible for a
credit under this section. For a married couple filing a joint return, the limitations in this
paragraph apply collectively to the investor and spouse. For purposes of determining the
ownership interest of an investor under this paragraph, the rules under section 267(c) and
267(e) of the Internal Revenue Code apply.

(d) Applications for tax credits deleted text beginfor 2010deleted text end must be made available on the department's
Web site by deleted text beginSeptember 1, 2010, and the department must begin accepting applications by
September 1, 2010. Applications for subsequent years must be made available by
deleted text end November
1 of the preceding year.

(e) Qualified investors and qualified funds must apply to the commissioner for tax credits.
Tax credits must be allocated to qualified investors or qualified funds in the order that the
tax credit request applications are filed with the department. The commissioner must approve
or reject tax credit request applications within 15 days of receiving the application. The
investment specified in the application must be made within 60 days of the allocation of
the credits. If the investment is not made within 60 days, the credit allocation is canceled
and available for reallocation. A qualified investor or qualified fund that fails to invest as
specified in the application, within 60 days of allocation of the credits, must notify the
commissioner of the failure to invest within five business days of the expiration of the
60-day investment period.

(f) All tax credit request applications filed with the department on the same day must
be treated as having been filed contemporaneously. If two or more qualified investors or
qualified funds file tax credit request applications on the same day, and the aggregate amount
of credit allocation claims exceeds the aggregate limit of credits under this section or the
lesser amount of credits that remain unallocated on that day, then the credits must be allocated
among the qualified investors or qualified funds who filed on that day on a pro rata basis
with respect to the amounts claimed. The pro rata allocation for any one qualified investor
or qualified fund is the product obtained by multiplying a fraction, the numerator of which
is the amount of the credit allocation claim filed on behalf of a qualified investor and the
denominator of which is the total of all credit allocation claims filed on behalf of all
applicants on that day, by the amount of credits that remain unallocated on that day for the
taxable year.

(g) A qualified investor or qualified fund, or a qualified small business acting on their
behalf, must notify the commissioner when an investment for which credits were allocated
has been made, and the taxable year in which the investment was made. A qualified fund
must also provide the commissioner with a statement indicating the amount invested by
each investor in the qualified fund based on each investor's share of the assets of the qualified
fund at the time of the qualified investment. After receiving notification that the investment
was made, the commissioner must issue credit certificates for the taxable year in which the
investment was made to the qualified investor or, for an investment made by a qualified
fund, to each qualified investor who is an investor in the fund. The certificate must state
that the credit is subject to revocation if the qualified investor or qualified fund does not
hold the investment in the qualified small business for at least three years, consisting of the
calendar year in which the investment was made and the two following years. The three-year
holding period does not apply if:

(1) the investment by the qualified investor or qualified fund becomes worthless before
the end of the three-year period;

(2) 80 percent or more of the assets of the qualified small business is sold before the end
of the three-year period;

(3) the qualified small business is sold before the end of the three-year period;

(4) the qualified small business's common stock begins trading on a public exchange
before the end of the three-year period; or

(5) the qualified investor dies before the end of the three-year period.

(h) The commissioner must notify the commissioner of revenue of credit certificates
issued under this section.

Sec. 10.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 290.17, subdivision 4, is amended
to read:


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 does not exist when two or more corporations are involved unless
more than 50 percent of the voting stock of each corporation 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 entitiesnew text begin, but excluding a disqualified captive insurance
company,
new text end which are part of a unitary business shall not be included in the net income or
the apportionment factors of the unitary business; except that the income and apportionment
factors of a foreign entity, other than an entity treated as a C corporation for federal income
tax purposes, that are included in the federal taxable income, as defined in section 63 of the
Internal Revenue Code as amended through the date named in section 290.01, subdivision
19
, of a domestic corporation, domestic entity, or individual must be included in determining
net income and the factors to be used in the apportionment of net income pursuant to section
290.191 or 290.20. A foreign corporation or other foreign entity which is not included on
a combined report and which is required to file a return under this chapter shall file on a
separate return basis.

(g) For purposes of determining the net income of a unitary business and the factors to
be used in the apportionment of net income pursuant to section 290.191 or 290.20, there
must be included only the income and apportionment factors of domestic corporations or
other domestic entities that are determined to be part of the unitary business pursuant to this
subdivision, notwithstanding that foreign corporations or other foreign entities might be
included in the unitary business; except that the income and apportionment factors of a
foreign entity, other than an entity treated as a C corporation for federal income tax purposes,
that is included in the federal taxable income, as defined in section 63 of the Internal Revenue
Code as amended through the date named in section 290.01, subdivision 19, of a domestic
corporation, domestic entity, or individual must be included in determining net income and
the factors to be used in the apportionment of net income pursuant to section 290.191 or
290.20.

(h) Each corporation or other entity, except a sole proprietorship, that is part of a unitary
business must file combined reports as the commissioner determines. On the reports, all
intercompany transactions between entities included pursuant to paragraph (g) must be
eliminated and the entire net income of the unitary business determined in accordance with
this subdivision is apportioned among the entities by using each entity's Minnesota factors
for apportionment purposes in the numerators of the apportionment formula and the total
factors for apportionment purposes of all entities included pursuant to paragraph (g) in the
denominators of the apportionment formula. Except as otherwise provided by paragraph
(f), all sales of the unitary business made within this state pursuant to section 290.191 or
290.20 must be included on the combined report of a corporation or other entity that is a
member of the unitary business and is subject to the jurisdiction of this state to impose tax
under this chapter.

(i) If a corporation has been divested from a unitary business and is included in a
combined report for a fractional part of the common accounting period of the combined
report:

(1) its income includable in the combined report is its income incurred for that part of
the year determined by proration or separate accounting; and

(2) its sales, property, and payroll included in the apportionment formula must be prorated
or accounted for separately.

(j) For purposes of this subdivision, "insurance company" means an insurance company,
as defined in section 290.01, subdivision 5b, that isdeleted text begin:
deleted text end

deleted text begin (1) licensed to engage in the business of insurance in Minnesota pursuant to chapter
60A; or

imposed by the taxing jurisdiction upon an insurance company organized in the other state

assessor in verifying the change in homestead dwelling. For taxes payable in 2009, the
owner must notify the assessor by December 1, 2008. Further notifications to the assessor
are not required if the property continues to meet all the requirements in this paragraph and
any dwellings on the agricultural land remain uninhabited.

(j) Agricultural land and buildings that were class 2a homestead property under section
273.13, subdivision 23, paragraph (a), for the 2008 assessment shall remain classified as
agricultural homesteads for subsequent assessments if:

(1) the property owner abandoned the homestead dwelling located on the agricultural
homestead as a result of the March 2009 floods;

(2) the property is located in the county of Marshall;

(3) the agricultural land and buildings remain under the same ownership for the current
assessment year as existed for the 2008 assessment year and continue to be used for
agricultural purposes;

(4) the dwelling occupied by the owner is located in Minnesota and is within 50 miles
of one of the parcels of agricultural land that is owned by the taxpayer; and

(5) the owner notifies the county assessor that the relocation was due to the 2009 floods,
and the owner furnishes the assessor any information deemed necessary by the assessor in
verifying the change in dwelling. Further notifications to the assessor are not required if the
property continues to meet all the requirements in this paragraph and any dwellings on the
agricultural land remain uninhabited.

Sec. 10.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, 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 blind person and the
blind person's spouse;

(2) any person who is permanently and totally disabled or by the disabled person and
the disabled person's spouse; or

(3) the surviving spouse of a permanently and totally disabled veteran 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 deleted text begineven ifdeleted text endnew text begin, whethernew text end the
title to the homestead is held by the corporation, partnership, or limited liability companynew text begin,
or 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
new text end. 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 $600,000 of market value is tier I, the next $1,700,000 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, mustnew text begin, by January 15 of the assessment year,new text end submit a declaration

of the resort used as a homestead and the owner of the homestead under the title
new text end. 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. 11.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 23, is amended
to read:


Subd. 23.

Class 2.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

new text begin "Agricultural purposes" also includes land consisting of a holding pond designed to
prevent runoff onto a divided four-lane expressway that is located at least 150 feet above
the expressway, as certified by the local soil and water conservation district in accordance
with USDA Field Office Technical Guide conservation practice standards, provided that
the land is located outside the metropolitan area as defined in section 473.121, and was
classified as agricultural in assessment year 2017.
new text end

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

(f) Agricultural land under this section also includes:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(1) wholesale and retail sales;

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

(3) warehousing or storage of processed goods; and

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(1) a legal description of the property;

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

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

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

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

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

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

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 34, is amended
to read:


Subd. 34.

Homestead of disabled veteran or family caregiver.

(a) All or a portion of
the market value of property owned by a veteran and serving as the veteran's homestead
under this section is excluded in determining the property's taxable market value if the
veteran has a service-connected disability of 70 percent or more as certified by the United
States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for exclusion under this subdivision, the
veteran must have been honorably discharged from the United States armed forces, as
indicated by United States Government Form DD214 or other official military discharge
papers.

(b)(1) For a disability rating of 70 percent or more, $150,000 of market value is excluded,
except as provided in clause (2); and

(2) for a total (100 percent) and permanent disability, $300,000 of market value is
excluded.

(c) If a disabled veteran qualifying for a valuation exclusion under paragraph (b), clause

certificate of sale in the manner provided by subdivision 5, provided that upon
recommendation of the county board, and where the circumstances are such that the

and any other state paid property tax credits in any calendar year, and after any refund
claimed and allowable under section 290A.04, subdivision 2h, that is first payable in the
year that the property tax is payable. In the case of a claimant who makes ground lease
payments, "property taxes payable" includes the amount of the payments directly attributable
to the property taxes assessed against the parcel on which the house is located. Regardless
of the limitations in section 280A(c)(5) of the Internal Revenue Code, "property taxes
payable" must be apportioned or reduced for the use of a portion of the claimant's homestead
for a business purpose if the claimant deducts any business depreciation expenses for the
use of a portion of the homestead or deducts expenses under section 280A of the Internal
Revenue Code for a business operated in the claimant's homestead. For homesteads which

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.
