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

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

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

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

(d) Class 4c property includes:

(1) except as provided in subdivision 22, paragraph (c), or subdivision 23, paragraph
(b), clause (1), real and personal property devoted to temporary and seasonal residential
occupancy for recreation purposes, including real and personal property devoted to
temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes and not devoted to
commercial purposes for more than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment.
For purposes of this clause, property is devoted to a commercial purpose on a specific
day if any portion of the property is used for residential occupancy, and a fee is charged
for residential occupancy. Class 4c property 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
4c property must provide recreational activities such as renting 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. A camping
pad offered for rent by a property that otherwise qualifies for class 4c is also class 4c

does not exceed 250 days. In order for a property to be classified as class 4c, seasonal
residential recreational for commercial purposes under this clause, at least 40 percent of
the annual gross lodging receipts related to the property must be from business conducted
during 90 consecutive days and either (i) at least 60 percent of all paid bookings by
lodging guests during the year must be for periods of at least two consecutive nights; or

houses, boats and motors, snowmobiles, downhill or cross-country ski equipment, or
charges for marina services, launch services, and guide services, or the sale of bait and
fishing tackle. For purposes of this determination, a paid booking of five or more nights
shall be counted as two bookings. Class 4c also includes commercial use real property
used exclusively for recreational purposes in conjunction with class 4c property devoted
to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreational purposes, up to a total of
two acres, provided the property is not devoted to commercial recreational use for more
than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment and is located within two
miles of the class 4c property with which it is used. Owners of real and personal property
devoted to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes and all
or a portion of which was devoted to commercial purposes for not more than 250 days in
the year preceding the year of assessment desiring classification as class 4c, must submit a
declaration to the assessor designating the cabins or units occupied for 250 days or less in
the year preceding the year of assessment by January 15 of the assessment year. Those
cabins or units and a proportionate share of the land on which they are located must be

a proportionate share of the land on which they are located will be designated as class
3a. The owner of property desiring designation as class 4c property must provide guest
registers or other records demonstrating that the units for which class 4c designation is
sought were not occupied for more than 250 days in the year preceding the assessment if
so requested. The portion of a property operated as a (1) restaurant, (2) bar, (3) gift shop,
(4) conference center or meeting room, and (5) other nonresidential facility operated on a
commercial basis not directly related to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for
recreation purposes does not qualify for class 4c;

(i) it is open to the public on a daily fee basis. It may charge membership fees or
dues, but a membership fee may not be required in order to use the property for golfing,

municipal courses; and

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

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

(3) real property up to a maximum of three acres of land owned and used by a
nonprofit community service oriented organization and that is not used for residential
purposes on either a temporary or permanent basis, qualifies for class 4c provided that
it meets either of the following:

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

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

activities for more than six days in the calendar year preceding the year of assessment
shall be assessed as class 3a. The use of the property for social events open exclusively
to members and their guests for periods of less than 24 hours, when an admission is
not charged nor any revenues are received by the organization shall not be considered a
revenue-producing activity.

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

275.74, subdivision 2;

(8) pay amounts required to correct an error in the levy certified to the county

subdivision 4b
, less the (i) county's share of transferred fines and fees collected by the
district courts in the county for calendar year 2001 and (ii) the aid amount certified to be
paid to the county in 2004 under section 273.1398, subdivision 4c; however, for taxes

state, the amount under this clause is limited to the amount of aid the county is certified to
receive under section 273.1398, subdivision 4a;

(15) to fund a police or firefighters relief association as required under section 69.77
to the extent that the required amount exceeds the amount levied for this purpose in 2001;

(19) for a city, for the costs reasonably and necessarily incurred for securing,
maintaining, or demolishing foreclosed or abandoned residential properties, as allowed by
the commissioner of revenue under section 275.74, subdivision 2. A city must have either
(i) a foreclosure rate of at least 1.4 percent in 2007, or (ii) a foreclosure rate in 2007 in
the city or in a zip code area of the city that is at least 50 percent higher than the average
foreclosure rate in the metropolitan area, as defined in section 473.121, subdivision 2,
to use this special levy. For purposes of this paragraph, "foreclosure rate" means the
number of foreclosures, as indicated by sheriff sales records, divided by the number of
households in the city in 2007;

printing of the tax statements. The commissioner of revenue shall prescribe the form of
the property tax statement and its contents. new text beginThe tax statement must not state or imply
that property tax credits are paid by the state of Minnesota.
new text endThe statement must contain
a tabulated statement of the dollar amount due to each taxing authority and the amount
of the state tax from the parcel of real property for which a particular tax statement is
prepared. The dollar amounts attributable to the county, the state tax, the voter approved
school tax, the other local school tax, the township or municipality, and the total of
the metropolitan special taxing districts as defined in section 275.065, subdivision 3,
paragraph (i), must be separately stated. The amounts due all other special taxing districts,
if any, may be aggregated except that any levies made by the regional rail authorities in the
county of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, or Washington under chapter
398A shall be listed on a separate line directly under the appropriate county's levy. If the
county levy under this paragraph includes an amount for a lake improvement district as

amount of property tax before subtraction of the deferred property tax amount. The
amount of the tax on contamination value imposed under sections 270.91 to 270.98, if any,
must also be separately stated. The dollar amounts, including the dollar amount of any
special assessments, may be rounded to the nearest even whole dollar. For purposes of this
section whole odd-numbered dollars may be adjusted to the next higher even-numbered
dollar. The amount of market value excluded under section 273.11, subdivision 16, if any,
must also be listed on the tax statement.

(b) The property tax statements for manufactured homes and sectional structures
taxed as personal property shall contain the same information that is required on the
tax statements for real property.

(c) Real and personal property tax statements must contain the following information
in the order given in this paragraph. The information must contain the current year tax
information in the right column with the corresponding information for the previous year
in a column on the left:

(1) the property's estimated market value under section 273.11, subdivision 1;

(2) the property's taxable market value after reductions under section 273.11,
subdivisions 1a and 16

taxpayers when the taxing district will begin its budget deliberations for the current
year, and encouraging taxpayers to attend the hearings. If the county allows notices to

Subdivision 1.

Due dates; penalties.

Except as provided in subdivision 3 or 4, on
May 16 or 21 days after the postmark date on the envelope containing the property tax
statement, whichever is later, a penalty accrues and thereafter is charged upon all unpaid
taxes on real estate on the current lists in the hands of the county treasurer. The penalty is
at a rate of two percent on homestead property until May 31 and four percent on June 1.
The penalty on nonhomestead property is at a rate of four percent until May 31 and eight
percent on June 1. This penalty does not accrue until June 1 of each year, or 21 days after
the postmark date on the envelope containing the property tax statements, whichever is
later, on commercial use real property used for seasonal residential recreational purposes
and classified as class 1c or 4c, and on other commercial use real property classified as
class 3a, provided that over 60 percent of the gross income earned by the enterprise on the
class 3a property is earned during the months of May, June, July, and August. In order for
the first half of the tax due on class 3a property to be paid after May 15 and before June 1,
or 21 days after the postmark date on the envelope containing the property tax statement,
whichever is later, without penalty, the owner of the property must attach an affidavit to the
payment attesting to compliance with the income provision of this subdivision. Thereafter,
for both homestead and nonhomestead property, on the first day of each month beginning
July 1, up to and including October 1 following, an additional penalty of one percent for
each month accrues and is charged on all such unpaid taxes provided that if the due date
was extended beyond May 15 as the result of any delay in mailing property tax statements
no additional penalty shall accrue if the tax is paid by the extended due date. If the tax is
not paid by the extended due date, then all penalties that would have accrued if the due
date had been May 15 shall be charged. When the taxes against any tract or lot exceed
deleted text begin $50deleted text endnew text begin $250new text end, one-half thereof may be paid prior to May 16 or 21 days after the postmark

16 following, without penalty; but, if not so paid, then a penalty of two percent accrues
thereon for homestead property and a penalty of four percent on nonhomestead property.
Thereafter, for homestead property, on the first day of November an additional penalty of
four percent accrues and on the first day of December following, an additional penalty of
two percent accrues and is charged on all such unpaid taxes. Thereafter, for nonhomestead
property, on the first day of November and December following, an additional penalty of
four percent for each month accrues and is charged on all such unpaid taxes. If one-half of
such taxes are not paid prior to May 16 or 21 days after the postmark date on the envelope
containing the property tax statement, whichever is later, the same may be paid at any time
prior to October 16, with accrued penalties to the date of payment added, and thereupon
no penalty attaches to the remaining one-half until October 16 following.

This section applies to payment of personal property taxes assessed against
improvements to leased property, except as provided by section 277.01, subdivision 3.

A county may provide by resolution that in the case of a property owner that has
multiple tracts or parcels with aggregate taxes exceeding deleted text begin$50deleted text endnew text begin $250new text end, payments may be
made in installments as provided in this subdivision.

The county treasurer may accept payments of more or less than the exact amount of
a tax installment due. Payments must be applied first to the oldest installment that is due
but which has not been fully paid. If the accepted payment is less than the amount due,
payments must be applied first to the penalty accrued for the year or the installment being
paid. Acceptance of partial payment of tax does not constitute a waiver of the minimum
payment required as a condition for filing an appeal under section 278.03 or any other law,
nor does it affect the order of payment of delinquent taxes under section 280.39.

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

(f) Except as provided in subdivision 7, failure of the county auditor to prepare or
the county treasurer to deliver the notice as required in this section does not invalidate the

General obligation revenue bonds.

general obligation of the general jurisdiction governmental unit as additional security for
bonds payable from income or revenues of the project or the authority. The authority
must find that the pledged revenues will equal or exceed 110 percent of the principal and
interest due on the bonds for each year. The proceeds of the bonds must be used for a
qualified housing development project or projects. The obligations must be issued and
sold in the manner and following the procedures provided by chapter 475, except the
obligations are not subject to approval by the electors, and the maturities may extend to
not more than 35 years for obligations sold to finance housing for the elderly and 40 years
for other obligations issued under this subdivision. The authority is the municipality for
purposes of chapter 475.

the general jurisdiction governmental unit whose general obligation is pledged. Public
hearings must be held on issuance of the obligations by both the authority and the general
jurisdiction governmental unit. The hearings must be held at least 15 days, but not more

outstanding under this section equals the greater of (1) one-half of one percent of
the taxable market value of the general jurisdiction governmental unit whose general
obligation is pledged, or (2) $3,000,000. In the case of county or multicounty general
obligation bonds, the outstanding general obligation bonds of all cities in the county

owned for the term of the bonds either by the authority or by a limited partnership or other
entity in which the authority or another entity under the sole control of the authority is the
sole general partner and the partnership or other entity must receive (1) an allocation from
the Department of Finance or an entitlement issuer of tax-exempt bonding authority for
the project and a preliminary determination by the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency
or the applicable suballocator of tax credits that the project will qualify for four percent
low-income housing tax credits or (2) a reservation of nine percent low-income housing
tax credits from the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency or a suballocator of tax credits
for the project. A qualified housing development project may admit nonelderly individuals
and families with higher incomes if:

(1) three years have passed since initial occupancy;

(2) the authority finds the project is experiencing unanticipated vacancies resulting in
insufficient revenues, because of changes in population or other unforeseen circumstances
that occurred after the initial finding of adequate revenues; and

(3) the authority finds a tax levy or payment from general assets of the general
jurisdiction governmental unit will be necessary to pay debt service on the bonds if higher
income individuals or families are not admitted.

new text begin (f) The authority may issue bonds to refund bonds issued under this subdivision in
accordance with section 475.67. The finding of the adequacy of pledged revenues required
by paragraph (a) and the public hearing required by paragraph (b) shall not apply to the
