BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2021 Supplement, section 289A.08, subdivision 7a, is
amended to read:


Subd. 7a.

Pass-through entity tax.

(a) For the purposes of this subdivision, the following
terms have the meanings given:

(1) "income" has the meaning given in subdivision 7, paragraph (j), modified by the
addition provided in section 290.0131, subdivision 5, and the subtraction provided in section
290.0132, subdivision 3, except that the provisions that apply to a partnership apply to a
qualifying entity and the provisions that apply to a partner apply to a qualifying owner. The
income of deleted text beginbothdeleted text end a resident deleted text beginanddeleted text endnew text begin qualifying owner of an entity taxed as a partnership under
the Internal Revenue Code is not subject to allocation outside this state as provided for

new text endis allocated and assigned to this state as provided
for nonresident partners and shareholders under sections 290.17, 290.191, and 290.20;

(2) "qualifying entity" means a partnership, limited liability companynew text begin taxed as a
partnership or S corporation

organized under section 1361(b)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code. Qualifying entity does
not include a partnership, limited liability company, or corporation that has a deleted text beginpartnership,
limited liability company other than a disregarded entity, or
deleted text end corporation as a partner, member,
or shareholder; and

(3) "qualifying owner" means:

(b) For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2020, deleted text beginin which the taxes of a
qualifying owner are limited under section 164(b)(6)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code,
deleted text end a
qualifying entity may elect to file a return and pay the pass-through entity tax imposed under
paragraph (c). The election:

(1) must be made on or before the due date or extended due date of the qualifying entity's
pass-through entity tax return;

(2) may only be made by qualifying owners who collectively hold more than a 50 percent
ownership interest in the qualifying entity;

(3) is binding on all qualifying owners who have an ownership interest in the qualifying
entity; and

(4) once made is irrevocable for the taxable year.

(c) Subject to the election in paragraph (b), a pass-through entity tax is imposed on a
qualifying entity in an amount equal to the sum of the tax liability of each qualifying owner.

(d) The amount of a qualifying owner's tax liability under paragraph (c) is the amount
of the qualifying owner's income multiplied by the highest tax rate for individuals under
section 290.06, subdivision 2c. When making this determination:

(1) nonbusiness deductions, standard deductions, or personal exemptions are not allowed;
and

(2) a credit or deduction is allowed only to the extent allowed to the qualifying owner.

(e) The amount of each credit and deduction used to determine a qualifying owner's tax
liability under paragraph (d) must also be used to determine that qualifying owner's income
tax liability under chapter 290.

(f) This subdivision does not negate the requirement that a qualifying owner pay estimated
tax if the qualifying owner's tax liability would exceed the requirements set forth in section
289A.25. The qualifying owner's liability to pay estimated tax on the qualifying owner's
tax liability as determined under paragraph (d) is, however, satisfied when the qualifying
entity pays estimated tax in the manner prescribed in section 289A.25 for composite estimated
tax.

(g) A qualifying owner's adjusted basis in the interest in the qualifying entity, and the
treatment of distributions, is determined as if the election to pay the pass-through entity tax
under paragraph (b) is not made.

(h) To the extent not inconsistent with this subdivision, for purposes of this chapter, a
pass-through entity tax return must be treated as a composite return and a qualifying entity
filing a pass-through entity tax return must be treated as a partnership filing a composite
return.

(i) The provisions of subdivision 17 apply to the election to pay the pass-through entity
tax under this subdivision.

(j) If a nonresident qualifying owner of a qualifying entity making the election to file
and pay the tax under this subdivision has no other Minnesota source income, filing of the
pass-through entity tax return is a return for purposes of subdivision 1, provided that the
nonresident qualifying owner must not have any Minnesota source income other than the
income from the qualifying entity, other electing qualifying entities, and other partnerships
electing to file a composite return under subdivision 7. If it is determined that the nonresident
qualifying owner has other Minnesota source income, the inclusion of the income and tax
liability for that owner under this provision will not constitute a return to satisfy the
requirements of subdivision 1. The tax paid for the qualifying owner as part of the
pass-through entity tax return is allowed as a payment of the tax by the qualifying owner
on the date on which the pass-through entity tax return payment was made.
