a local tax rate under section 469.177 and is not the levy of a governmental unit under
chapters 276A and 473F.

The commissioner shall increase or decrease the preliminary or final rate for a year
as necessary to account for errors and tax base changes that affected a preliminary or final
rate for either of the two preceding years. Adjustments are allowed to the extent that the
necessary information is available to the commissioner at the time the rates for a year must
be certified, and for the following reasons:

(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
section 275.29 that was not reported on the abstracts of assessment submitted under
section 270C.89 for the same year.

The commissioner may, but need not, make adjustments if the total difference in the tax
levied for the year would be less than $100,000.
