Levy amount.

The state general levy is levied against
commercial-industrial property and seasonal residential recreational property, as defined
in this section. The state general levy for commercial-industrial property is deleted text begin$716,990,000deleted text endnew text begin
$480,450,000
new text end for taxes payable in 2023 deleted text beginand thereafterdeleted text end.new text begin For taxes payable in 2024 and
thereafter, the levy amount is increased each year by multiplying the levy amount for the
prior year by the sum of one plus the rate of increase, if any, in the implicit price deflator
for government consumption expenditures and gross investment for state and local
governments prepared by the Bureau of Economic Analysts of the United States Department
of Commerce for the 12-month period ending March 31 of the year prior to the year the
taxes are payable.
new text end The state general levy for seasonal-recreational property is $41,690,000
for taxes payable in 2020 and thereafter. The tax under this section is not treated as 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 to the commissioner under section 270C.85,
subdivision 2, clause (4), 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.
