new text end

new text begin (a) In determining whether a taxpayer has a nontax purpose for entering into a
transaction pursuant to section 270C.03, subdivision 1, clause (3), the commissioner may
determine that a transaction has a nontax purpose only if:
new text end

new text begin (1) the expected results of a transaction are that the present value of the reasonably
expected pretax profit from the transaction is substantial in relation to the present value
of the expected net tax benefits that would be allowed if the transaction or series of
transactions were respected;
new text end

new text begin (2) the reasonably expected pretax profit from the transaction or series of transactions
exceeds a risk-free rate of return;
new text end

new text begin (3) the nontax purpose is the taxpayer's primary motivation for entering into the
transaction; and
new text end

new text begin (4) the form of the transaction is a reasonable means of attaining that purpose.
new text end

new text begin Fees and other transaction expenses and foreign taxes must be taken into account as
expenses in determining pretax profit. The acquisition of a financial accounting benefit is
a nontax purpose only if the financial accounting benefit is unrelated to the expected tax
effects of a transaction.
new text end

new text begin (b) To overcome the presumption in section 270C.33, subdivision 6, that an order of
the commissioner disallowing the tax effects of a transaction because the commissioner
has determined that the transaction does not have a nontax purpose and economic
substance is correct and valid, the taxpayer must prove the existence of a nontax purpose
and economic substance with clear and convincing evidence.

under this clause, consenting to be the designated member does not create the jurisdiction
to impose tax on the designated member, other than as described in item (i).

identification number.

(c) The commissioner shall adopt rules for the filing of one return on behalf of the

(d) In lieu of a tax computed according to the rates set forth in this subdivision, the
tax of any individual taxpayer whose taxable net income for the taxable year is less than
an amount determined by the commissioner must be computed in accordance with tables
prepared and issued by the commissioner of revenue based on income brackets of not
more than $100. The amount of tax for each bracket shall be computed at the rates set

as defined in section 62 of the Internal Revenue Code and increased by the additions
required under section 290.01, subdivision 19a, clauses (1), (5), (6), (7), (8), (9), (12),
(13), (16), and (17), and reduced by the Minnesota assignable portion of the subtraction
for United States government interest under section 290.01, subdivision 19b, clause
(1), and the subtractions under section 290.01, subdivision 19b, clauses (8), (9), (13),
(14), (15), and (17), after applying the allocation and assignability provisions of section
290.081, clause (a), or 290.17; and

(2) the denominator is the individual's federal adjusted gross income as defined in
section 62 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, increased by the amounts specified in
section 290.01, subdivision 19a, clauses (1), (5), (6), (7), (8), (9), (12), (13), (16), and

Sec. 19.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, 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.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 290.17, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Scope of allocation rules.

(a) The income of resident individuals
is not subject to allocation outside this state. The allocation rules apply to nonresident
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
days in the taxable year of the partnership, S corporation, trust, or estate.

new text begin (d) In the case of an individual who is a part-year resident as defined in section
290.01, subdivision 7, paragraph (d), income is assigned or allocated under subdivisions
2 and 3 except a pro rata share of income recognized while the individual maintains an
abode in Minnesota and is not assigned or allocated to the state under subdivision 2 or
3 is also assigned to the state. The pro rata share is the income not assigned to the state
under subdivision 2 or 3 multiplied by the ratio of the number of days physically present
in Minnesota while domiciled in another state during the tax year over the number of days
the individual maintains an abode in Minnesota while domiciled in another state.

Sec. 32.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, 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 deleted text beginderived from the conductdeleted text endnew text begin incomenew text end 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) and (f) 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 clause (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
assignable 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.

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 companynew text begin determined under section 290.341new text end, 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.

(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.

under chapter 60C, and any amount paid pursuant to assessments made after December
31, 2010, under chapter 61B, as follows.

new text begin (b) Each such assessment must give rise to an amount of offset equal to 20 percent
of the amount of the assessment for each of the five calendar years following the year in
which the assessment was paid.
new text end

new text begin (c) The amount of offset initially determined for each taxable year is the sum of the
amounts determined under paragraph (b) for that taxable year.
new text end

new text begin (d) Each year the commissioner of revenue shall compare total guaranty association
assessments levied over the preceding five calendar years to the sum of all premium
tax and corporate franchise tax revenues collected from insurance companies without
reduction for any guaranty association assessment offset in the preceding calendar year,
referred to in this subdivision as "preceding year insurance tax revenues."
new text end new text begin If total guaranty
association assessments levied over the preceding five years exceed the preceding year
insurance tax revenues, insurance companies are allowed only a proportionate part of the
corporate franchise tax offset calculated under paragraph (c) for the current calendar
year. The proportionate part of the corporate franchise tax offset allowed in the current
calendar year is determined by multiplying the amount calculated under paragraph (c) by a
fraction, the numerator of which equals the preceding year insurance tax revenues and
the denominator of which equals total guaranty association assessments levied over the
preceding five-year period. The proportionate part of the premium tax offset that is not
allowed is carried forward to subsequent tax years and added to the amount of corporate
franchise tax offset calculated under paragraph (c) before application of the limitation
imposed by this paragraph. Any amount carried forward from prior years must be allowed
before allowance of the offset for the current year calculated under paragraph (c). The
corporate franchise tax offset limitation must be calculated separately for (1) insurance
companies subject to assessment under chapter 60C, and (2) insurance companies subject
to assessment under chapter 61B. When the corporate franchise tax offset is limited by
this provision, the commissioner of revenue shall notify affected insurance companies
before February 1 for purposes of filing premium and corporate franchise tax returns. The

of revenue with the necessary information on guaranty association assessments. The

to allowance of the credit provided by subdivision 3 or its premium tax liability under
chapter 297I, then the insurance company may carry forward the excess, referred to in this
subdivision as the "carryforward credit," to subsequent taxable years. The carryforward
credit must be allowed as an offset against corporate franchise tax liability for the first
succeeding year to the extent that the corporate franchise tax liability for that year exceeds
the amount of the allowable offset for the year determined under paragraphs (b) and (c).
The carryforward credit must be reduced, but not below zero, by the greater of the amount
of the carryforward credit allowed as an offset against the corporate franchise tax pursuant
to this paragraph or the amount of the carryforward credit allowed as an offset against the
insurance company's premium tax liability under chapter 297I pursuant to section 297I.20,
subdivision 1, paragraph (b), clause (4). The remainder, if any, of the carryforward credit

Sec. 7.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 290.0671, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Credit allowed.

(a) An individual is allowed a credit against the tax
imposed by this chapter equal to a percentage of earned income. To receive a credit, a
taxpayer must be eligible for a credit under section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code.

(b) For individuals with no qualifying children, the credit equals 1.9125 percent of
the first $4,620 of earned income. The credit is reduced by 1.9125 percent of earned
income or adjusted gross income, whichever is greater, in excess of $5,770, but in no
case is the credit less than zero.

(c) For individuals with one qualifying child, the credit equals 8.5 percent of the first
$6,920 of earned income and 8.5 percent of earned income over $12,080 but less than
$13,450. The credit is reduced by 5.73 percent of earned income or adjusted gross income,
whichever is greater, in excess of $15,080, but in no case is the credit less than zero.

(d) For individuals with two or more qualifying children, the credit equals ten
percent of the first $9,720 of earned income and 20 percent of earned income over
$14,860 but less than $16,800. The credit is reduced by 10.3 percent of earned income
or adjusted gross income, whichever is greater, in excess of $17,890, but in no case is
the credit less than zero.

(e) For a nonresident or part-year resident, the credit must be allocated based on the
percentage calculated under section 290.06, subdivision 2c, paragraph (e).

(f) For a person who was a resident for the entire tax year and has earned income
not subject to tax under this chapter, including income excluded under section 290.01,
subdivision 19b
, clause (9) or (15), the credit must be allocated based on the ratio of
federal adjusted gross income reduced by the earned income not subject to tax under
this chapter over federal adjusted gross income. For purposes of this paragraph, the
subtractions for military pay under section 290.01, subdivision 19b, clauses (10) and (11),
are not considered "earned income not subject to tax under this chapter."

For the purposes of this paragraph, 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."

(g) For tax years beginning after December 31, 2007, and before December 31,

paragraph (d), after being adjusted for inflation under subdivision 7, are each increased by
$3,000 for married taxpayers filing joint returns. For tax years beginning after December

pursuant to the provisions of section 1(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, except that in
section 1(f)(3)(B), the word "2007" shall be substituted for the word "1992." For 2009,
the commissioner shall then determine the percent change from the 12 months ending on
August 31, 2007, to the 12 months ending on August 31, 2008, and in each subsequent
year, from the 12 months ending on August 31, 2007, to the 12 months ending on August
31 of the year preceding the taxable year. The earned income thresholds as adjusted
for inflation must be rounded to the nearest $10. If the amount ends in $5, the amount
is rounded up to the nearest $10. The determination of the commissioner under this
subdivision is not a rule under the Administrative Procedure Act.
