tax by applying the above rates to their taxable income, except that the income brackets
will be one-half of the above amounts after the adjustment required in subdivision 2d.

(b) The income taxes imposed by this chapter upon unmarried individuals must be
computed by applying to taxable net income the following schedule of rates:

(1) On the first $26,520, 5.35 percent;

(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 forth in
this subdivision, provided that the commissioner may disregard a fractional part of a dollar
unless it amounts to 50 cents or more, in which case it may be increased to $1.

(e) An individual who is not a Minnesota resident for the entire year must compute the
individual's Minnesota income tax as provided in this subdivision. After the application of

Sec. 10.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, 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), 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 290.0131, subdivision 2, and the
subtraction allowed by section 290.0132, subdivision 2, 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)(1) 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; and

(2) the allowance of the credit does not reduce the taxes paid under this chapter to an
amount less than what would be assessed if the gross income earned within the other state
were 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.

(l)(1) The credit allowed to a qualifying individual under this section for tax paid to a
qualifying state equals the credit calculated under paragraphs (b) and (d), plus the amount
calculated by multiplying:

(i) the difference between the preliminary credit and the credit calculated under paragraphs
(b) and (d), by

(ii) the ratio derived by dividing the income subject to tax in the qualifying state that
consists of compensation for performance of personal or professional services by the total
amount of income subject to tax in the qualifying state.

(2) If the amount of the credit that a qualifying individual is eligible to receive under
clause (1) for tax paid to a qualifying state exceeds the tax due under this chapter before
the application of the credit calculated under clause (1), the commissioner shall refund the
excess to the qualifying individual. An amount sufficient to pay the refunds required by this
subdivision is appropriated to the commissioner from the general fund.

(3) For purposes of this paragraph, "preliminary credit" means the credit that a qualifying
individual is eligible to receive under paragraphs (b) and (d) for tax paid to a qualifying
state without regard to the limitation in paragraph (d), clause (2); "qualifying individual"
means a Minnesota resident under section 290.01, subdivision 7, paragraph (a), who received
compensation during the taxable year for the performance of personal or professional services
within a qualifying state; and "qualifying state" means a state with which an agreement
under section 290.081 is not in effect for the taxable year but was in effect for a taxable
year beginning before January 1, 2010.

new text begin (m) A resident partner, member, or shareholder of a qualifying entity as defined in section
289A.08, subdivision 7a, paragraph (f), may claim a credit for the amount of their pro rata
share of any net income tax paid to another state by the entity or on a composite return filed
with that state on behalf of its Minnesota resident partners, members, or shareholders. For
purposes of this paragraph, "net income tax" means any tax imposed on or measured by net
income, but "net income" does not include any income that is apportioned to this state under
section 290.191 or 290.20.

Withholding by partnerships.

(a) A partnership shall deduct and withhold
