, and amounts granted to persons by the legislature on the recommendation

claimant agency, which shall, upon the request of the spouse who does not owe the debt,

Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 289A.50, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

General right to refund.

(a) Subject to the requirements of this
section and section 289A.40, a taxpayer who has paid a tax in excess of the taxes lawfully
due and who files a written claim for refund will be refunded or credited the overpayment
of the tax determined by the commissioner to be erroneously paid.

(b) The claim must specify the name of the taxpayer, the date when and the period
for which the tax was paid, the kind of tax paid, the amount of the tax that the taxpayer
claims was erroneously paid, the grounds on which a refund is claimed, and other
information relative to the payment and in the form required by the commissioner. An
income tax, estate tax, or corporate franchise tax return, or amended return claiming an
overpayment constitutes a claim for refund.

(c) When, in the course of an examination, and within the time for requesting a
refund, the commissioner determines that there has been an overpayment of tax, the
commissioner shall refund or credit the overpayment to the taxpayer and no demand
is necessary. If the overpayment exceeds $1, the amount of the overpayment must
be refunded to the taxpayer. If the amount of the overpayment is less than $1, the
commissioner is not required to refund. In these situations, the commissioner does not
have to make written findings or serve notice by mail to the taxpayer.

(d) If the amount allowable as a credit for withholding, estimated taxes, or dependent
care exceeds the tax against which the credit is allowable, the amount of the excess is
considered an overpayment. deleted text beginThe refund allowed by section 290.06, subdivision 23, is also
considered an overpayment.
deleted text end The requirements of section 270C.33 do not apply to the
refunding of such an overpayment shown on the original return filed by a taxpayer.

(e) If the entertainment tax withheld at the source exceeds by $1 or more the taxes,
penalties, and interest reported in the return of the entertainment entity or imposed by
section 290.9201, the excess must be refunded to the entertainment entity. If the excess is
less than $1, the commissioner need not refund that amount.

(f) If the surety deposit required for a construction contract exceeds the liability of
the out-of-state contractor, the commissioner shall refund the difference to the contractor.

(g) An action of the commissioner in refunding the amount of the overpayment does
not constitute a determination of the correctness of the return of the taxpayer.

(h) There is appropriated from the general fund to the commissioner of revenue the
amount necessary to pay refunds allowed under this section.

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 year, and after any refund
claimed and allowable under section 290A.04, subdivision 2h, that is first payable in

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

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.

year for any city means the amount of aid it was certified to receive under this section in
the previous payable year.

(c) For aids payable in 2010 and thereafter, the total aid for any city shall not exceed
the sum of (1) ten percent of the city's net levy for the year prior to the aid distribution
plus (2) its total aid in the previous year. For aids payable in 2009 and thereafter, the total
aid for any city with a population of 2,500 or more may not be less than its total aid under
this section in the previous year minus the lesser of $10 multiplied by its population, or ten
percent of its net levy in the year prior to the aid distribution.

(d) For aids payable in 2010 and thereafter, the total aid for a city with a population
less than 2,500 must not be less than the amount it was certified to receive in the
previous year minus the lesser of $10 multiplied by its population, or five percent of its
2003 certified aid amount. For aids payable in 2009 only, the total aid for a city with a
population less than 2,500 must not be less than what it received under this section in the
previous year unless its total aid in calendar year 2008 was aid under section 477A.011,
subdivision 36, paragraph (s), in which case its minimum aid is zero.

(e) A city's aid loss under this section may not exceed $300,000 in any year in
which the total city aid appropriation under section 477A.03, subdivision 2a, is equal or
greater than the appropriation under that subdivision in the previous year, unless the
city has an adjustment in its city net tax capacity under the process described in section
469.174, subdivision 28.

(f) If a city's net tax capacity used in calculating aid under this section has decreased
in any year by more than 25 percent from its net tax capacity in the previous year due to
property becoming tax-exempt Indian land, the city's maximum allowed aid increase
under paragraph (c) shall be increased by an amount equal to (1) the city's tax rate in the
year of the aid calculation, multiplied by (2) the amount of its net tax capacity decrease
resulting from the property becoming tax exempt.
