upon a sale of the assets of, or any interest in, an S corporation or partnership that operated
in Minnesota during the year of sale, including any income or gain to be recognized in future

subsequent Minnesota tax returns.

which a tax is imposed in subdivision 2c shall be adjusted for inflation by the percentage

the 12 months ending on August 31, 2012, to the 12 months ending on August 31 of the
year preceding the taxable year. The commissioner shall determine the rate bracket for
married filing separate returns after this adjustment is done. The rate bracket for married
filing separate must be one-half of the rate bracket for married filing joint.

of the commissioner pursuant to this subdivision shall not be considered a "rule" and shall
not be subject to the Administrative Procedure Act contained in chapter 14.

issued by the commission, except an amount paid as a purse, shall deduct from the payment
and withhold 6.25 percent of the amount as Minnesota withholding tax when the amount
paid to that individual by the same person during the calendar year exceeds $600. For
purposes of the provisions of this section, a payment to any person which is subject to

under the penalties of perjury, containing the name, address, and Social Security account
number of the person receiving the payment. No withholding is required if the individual

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 10.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 22, is amended
to read:


Subd. 22.

Class 1.

(a) Except as provided in subdivision 23 and in paragraphs (b) and
(c), real estate which that is residential and used for homestead purposes is class 1a. In the
case of a duplex or triplex in which one of the units is used for homestead purposes, the
entire property is deemed to be used for homestead purposes. The market value of class 1a
property must be determined based upon the value of the house, garage, and land.

The first $500,000 of market value of class 1a property has a net classification rate of
one percent of its market value; and the market value of class 1a property that exceeds
$500,000 has a classification rate of 1.25 percent of its market value.

(b) Class 1b property includes homestead real estate or homestead manufactured homes
used for the purposes of a homestead by:

(1) any person who is blind as defined in section 256D.35, or the blind person and the
blind person's spouse;

(2) any person who is permanently and totally disabled or by the disabled person and
the disabled person's spouse; or

(3) the surviving spouse of a permanently and totally disabled veteran homesteading a
property classified under this paragraph for taxes payable in 2008.

Property is classified and assessed under clause (2) only if the government agency or
income-providing source certifies, upon the request of the homestead occupant, that the
homestead occupant satisfies the disability requirements of this paragraph, and that the
property is not eligible for the valuation exclusion under subdivision 34.

Property is classified and assessed under paragraph (b) only if the commissioner of
revenue or the county assessor certifies that the homestead occupant satisfies the requirements
of this paragraph.

Permanently and totally disabled for the purpose of this subdivision means a condition
which is permanent in nature and totally incapacitates the person from working at an
occupation which brings the person an income. The first $50,000 market value of class 1b
property has a net classification rate of .45 percent of its market value. The remaining market
value of class 1b property is classified as class 1a or class 2a property, whichever is
appropriate.

(c) Class 1c property is commercial use real and personal property that abuts public
water as defined in section 103G.005, subdivision 15, or abuts a state trail administered by
the Department of Natural Resources, and is devoted to temporary and seasonal residential
occupancy for recreational purposes but not devoted to commercial purposes for more than
250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment, and that includes a portion used as
a homestead by the owner, which includes a dwelling occupied as a homestead by a
shareholder of a corporation that owns the resort, a partner in a partnership that owns the
resort, or a member of a limited liability company that owns the resort even if the title to
the homestead is held by the corporation, partnership, or limited liability company. To
qualify as class 1c property, the owner of the homestead and the resort property must be
the same.
For purposes of this paragraph, property is devoted to a commercial purpose on
a specific day if any portion of the property, excluding the portion used exclusively as a
homestead, is used for residential occupancy and a fee is charged for residential occupancy.
Class 1c 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 1c property must provide
recreational activities such as the rental of 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. Any unit in which the right to use the property is
transferred to an individual or entity by deeded interest, or the sale of shares or stock, no
longer qualifies for class 1c even though it may remain available for rent. A camping pad
offered for rent by a property that otherwise qualifies for class 1c is also class 1c, regardless
of the term of the rental agreement, as long as the use of the camping pad does not exceed
250 days. If the same owner owns two separate parcels that are located in the same township,
and one of those properties is classified as a class 1c property and the other would be eligible
to be classified as a class 1c property if it was used as the homestead of the owner, both
properties will be assessed as a single class 1c property; for purposes of this sentence,
properties are deemed to be owned by the same owner if each of them is owned by a limited
liability company, and both limited liability companies have the same membership. The
portion of the property used as a homestead is class 1a property under paragraph (a). The
remainder of the property is classified as follows: the first $600,000 of market value is tier
I, the next $1,700,000 of market value is tier II, and any remaining market value is tier III.
The classification rates for class 1c are: tier I, 0.50 percent; tier II, 1.0 percent; and tier III,
1.25 percent. Owners of real and personal property devoted to temporary and seasonal
residential occupancy for recreation purposes in which all or a portion of the property was
devoted to commercial purposes for not more than 250 days in the year preceding the year
of assessment desiring classification as class 1c, 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 designated as class 1c as otherwise
provided. The remainder of the cabins or units and a proportionate share of the land on
which they are located must be designated as class 3a commercial. The owner of property
desiring designation as class 1c property must provide guest registers or other records
demonstrating that the units for which class 1c 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 1c.

(d) Class 1d property includes structures that meet all of the following criteria:

(1) the structure is located on property that is classified as agricultural property under
section 273.13, subdivision 23;

(2) the structure is occupied exclusively by seasonal farm workers during the time when
they work on that farm, and the occupants are not charged rent for the privilege of occupying
the property, provided that use of the structure for storage of farm equipment and produce
does not disqualify the property from classification under this paragraph;

(3) the structure meets all applicable health and safety requirements for the appropriate
season; and

(4) the structure is not salable as residential property because it does not comply with
local ordinances relating to location in relation to streets or roads.

The market value of class 1d property has the same classification rates as class 1a property
under paragraph (a).

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 11.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 273.13, subdivision 35, is amended to read:


Subd. 35.

Homestead market value exclusion.

(a) Prior to determining a property's
net tax capacity under this section, property classified as class 1a or 1b under subdivision
22, and the portion of property classified as class 2a under subdivision 23 consisting of the
house, garage, and surrounding one acre of land, shall be eligible for a market value exclusion
as determined under paragraph (b).

(b) For a homestead valued at $76,000 or less, the exclusion is 40 percent of market
value. For a homestead valued between $76,000 and $413,800, the exclusion is $30,400
minus nine percent of the valuation over $76,000. For a homestead valued at $413,800 or
more, there is no valuation exclusion. The valuation exclusion shall be rounded to the nearest
whole dollar, and may not be less than zero.

(c) Any valuation exclusions or adjustments under section 273.11 shall be applied prior
to determining the amount of the valuation exclusion under this subdivision.

(d) In the case of a property that is classified as part homestead and part nonhomestead,
(i) (1) the exclusion shall apply only to the homestead portion of the property, but (ii) (2)
if a portion of a property is classified as nonhomestead solely because not all the owners
occupy the property, not all the owners have qualifying relatives occupying the property,
or solely because not all the spouses of owners occupy the property, the exclusion amount
shall be initially computed as if that nonhomestead portion were also in the homestead class
and then prorated to the owner-occupant's percentage of ownership homestead. The
percentage of homestead is equal to 100 divided by the number of owners of the property,
or, in the case of a trust, the number of grantors of the trust that owns the property
. For the
purpose of this section, when an owner-occupant's spouse does not occupy the property,
the percentage of ownership homestead for the owner-occupant spouse is one-half of the
couple's ownership homestead percentage.

homestead under section 273.13, subdivision 23, paragraph (a), is eligible for an agricultural
credit. The credit is computed using the property's agricultural credit market value, defined
for this purpose as the property's market value excluding the market value of the house,
garage, and immediately surrounding one acre of land. The credit is equal to 0.3 percent of
the first $115,000 of the property's agricultural credit market value plus 0.1 percent of the
property's agricultural credit market value in excess of $115,000, subject to a maximum
credit of $490 for a full agricultural homestead. In the case of property that is classified as
part homestead and part nonhomestead solely because not all the owners occupy or farm
the property, not all the owners have qualifying relatives occupying or farming the property,
or solely because not all the spouses of owners occupy the property, the credit is computed
on the amount of agricultural credit market value corresponding to the percentage of
homestead, and the maximum credit equals $490 multiplied by the percentage of homestead.
The percentage of homestead is equal to 100 divided by the number of owners of the property,
or, in the case of a trust, the number of grantors of the trust that owns the property.

Subdivision 1.

Levy amount.

The state general levy is levied against
commercial-industrial property and seasonal residential recreational property, as defined

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 on the abstracts of tax lists submitted under section

commissioner of revenue, after such review, shall pay the deferred amount of property tax
to each county treasurer on or before August 31.

The county treasurer shall distribute as part of the October settlement the funds received
as if they had been collected as a part of the property tax.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 21.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 469.177, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Original net tax capacity.

(a) Upon or after adoption of a tax increment
financing plan, the auditor of any county in which the district is situated shall, upon request
of the authority, certify the original net tax capacity of the tax increment financing district
and that portion of the district overlying any subdistrict as described in the tax increment
financing plan and shall certify in each year thereafter the amount by which the original net
tax capacity has increased or decreased as a result of a change in tax exempt status of
property within the district and any subdistrict, reduction or enlargement of the district or
changes pursuant to subdivision 4. The auditor shall certify the amount within 30 days after
receipt of the request and sufficient information to identify the parcels included in the district.
The certification relates to the taxes payable year as provided in subdivision 6.

(b) If the classification under section 273.13 of property located in a district changes to
a classification that has a different assessment ratio, the original net tax capacity of that
property must be redetermined at the time when its use is changed as if the property had
originally been classified in the same class in which it is classified after its use is changed.

(c) The amount to be added to the original net tax capacity of the district as a result of
previously tax exempt real property within the district becoming taxable equals the net tax
capacity of the real property as most recently assessed pursuant to section 273.18 information
reported to the commissioner under section 270C.85, subdivision 2, clause (4),
or, if that
assessment was made more than one year prior to the date of title transfer rendering the
property taxable, the net tax capacity assessed by the assessor at the time of the transfer. If
improvements are made to tax exempt property after the municipality approves the district
and before the parcel becomes taxable, the assessor shall, at the request of the authority,
separately assess the estimated market value of the improvements. If the property becomes
taxable, the county auditor shall add to original net tax capacity, the net tax capacity of the
parcel, excluding the separately assessed improvements. If substantial taxable improvements
were made to a parcel after certification of the district and if the property later becomes tax
exempt, in whole or part, as a result of the authority acquiring the property through
foreclosure or exercise of remedies under a lease or other revenue agreement or as a result
of tax forfeiture, the amount to be added to the original net tax capacity of the district as a
result of the property again becoming taxable is the amount of the parcel's value that was
included in original net tax capacity when the parcel was first certified. The amount to be
added to the original net tax capacity of the district as a result of enlargements equals the
net tax capacity of the added real property as most recently certified by the commissioner
of revenue as of the date of modification of the tax increment financing plan pursuant to
section 469.175, subdivision 4.

(d) If the net tax capacity of a property increases because the property no longer qualifies
under the Minnesota Agricultural Property Tax Law, section 273.111; the Minnesota Open
Space Property Tax Law, section 273.112; or the Metropolitan Agricultural Preserves Act,
chapter 473H, the Rural Preserve Property Tax Program under section 273.114, or because
platted, unimproved property is improved or market value is increased after approval of the
plat under section 273.11, subdivision 14a or 14b, the increase in net tax capacity must be
added to the original net tax capacity. If the net tax capacity of a property increases because
the property no longer qualifies for the homestead market value exclusion under section
273.13, subdivision 35, the increase in net tax capacity must be added to original net tax
capacity if the original construction of the affected home was completed before the date the
assessor certified the original net tax capacity of the district.

(e) The amount to be subtracted from the original net tax capacity of the district as a
result of previously taxable real property within the district becoming tax exempt or
qualifying in whole or part for an exclusion from taxable market value, or a reduction in
the geographic area of the district, shall be the amount of original net tax capacity initially
attributed to the property becoming tax exempt, being excluded from taxable market value,
or being removed from the district. If the net tax capacity of property located within the tax
increment financing district is reduced by reason of a court-ordered abatement, stipulation
agreement, voluntary abatement made by the assessor or auditor or by order of the
commissioner of revenue, the reduction shall be applied to the original net tax capacity of
the district when the property upon which the abatement is made has not been improved
since the date of certification of the district and to the captured net tax capacity of the district
in each year thereafter when the abatement relates to improvements made after the date of
certification. The county auditor may specify reasonable form and content of the request
for certification of the authority and any modification thereof pursuant to section 469.175,
subdivision 4
.

(f) If a parcel of property contained a substandard building or improvements described
in section 469.174, subdivision 10, paragraph (e), that were demolished or removed and if
the authority elects to treat the parcel as occupied by a substandard building under section
469.174, subdivision 10, paragraph (b), or by improvements under section 469.174,
subdivision 10
, paragraph (e), the auditor shall certify the original net tax capacity of the
parcel using the greater of (1) the current net tax capacity of the parcel, or (2) the estimated
market value of the parcel for the year in which the building or other improvements were
demolished or removed, but applying the classification rates for the current year.

(g) For a redevelopment district qualifying under section 469.174, subdivision 10,
paragraph (a), clause (4), as a qualified disaster area, the auditor shall certify the value of
the land as the original tax capacity for any parcel in the district that contains a building
that suffered substantial damage as a result of the disaster or emergency.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 4.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 22, is amended
to read:


Subd. 22.

Class 1.

(a) Except as provided in subdivision 23 and in paragraphs (b) and
(c), real estate which is residential and used for homestead purposes is class 1a. In the case
of a duplex or triplex in which one of the units is used for homestead purposes, the entire
property is deemed to be used for homestead purposes. The market value of class 1a property
must be determined based upon the value of the house, garage, and land.

The first $500,000 of market value of class 1a property has a net classification rate of
one percent of its market value; and the market value of class 1a property that exceeds
$500,000 has a classification rate of 1.25 percent of its market value.

(b) Class 1b property includes homestead real estate or homestead manufactured homes
used for the purposes of a homestead by:

(1) any person who is blind as defined in section 256D.35, or the blind person who is
blind
and the blind person's spouse of the person who is blind;

(2) any person who is permanently and totally disabled or by the disabled person with
a disability
and the disabled person's spouse of the person with a disability; or

(3) the surviving spouse of a veteran who was permanently and totally disabled veteran
homesteading a property classified under this paragraph for taxes payable in 2008.

Property is classified and assessed under clause (2) only if the government agency or
income-providing source certifies, upon the request of the homestead occupant, that the
homestead occupant satisfies the disability requirements of this paragraph, and that the
property is not eligible for the valuation exclusion under subdivision 34.

Property is classified and assessed under paragraph (b) only if the commissioner of
revenue or the county assessor certifies that the homestead occupant satisfies the requirements
of this paragraph.

Permanently and totally disabled for the purpose of this subdivision means a condition
which is permanent in nature and totally incapacitates the person from working at an
occupation which brings the person an income. The first $50,000 market value of class 1b
property has a net classification rate of .45 percent of its market value. The remaining market
value of class 1b property is classified as class 1a or class 2a property, whichever is
appropriate.

(c) Class 1c property is commercial use real and personal property that abuts public
water as defined in section 103G.005, subdivision 15, or abuts a state trail administered by
the Department of Natural Resources, and is devoted to temporary and seasonal residential
occupancy for recreational purposes but not devoted to commercial purposes for more than
250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment, and that includes a portion used as
a homestead by the owner, which includes a dwelling occupied as a homestead by a
shareholder of a corporation that owns the resort, a partner in a partnership that owns the
resort, or a member of a limited liability company that owns the resort even if the title to
the homestead is held by the corporation, partnership, or limited liability company. For
purposes of this paragraph, property is devoted to a commercial purpose on a specific day
if any portion of the property, excluding the portion used exclusively as a homestead, is
used for residential occupancy and a fee is charged for residential occupancy. Class 1c
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 1c property must provide recreational
activities such as the rental of 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. Any unit in which the right to use the property is transferred
to an individual or entity by deeded interest, or the sale of shares or stock, no longer qualifies
for class 1c even though it may remain available for rent. A camping pad offered for rent
by a property that otherwise qualifies for class 1c is also class 1c, regardless of the term of
the rental agreement, as long as the use of the camping pad does not exceed 250 days. If
the same owner owns two separate parcels that are located in the same township, and one
of those properties is classified as a class 1c property and the other would be eligible to be
classified as a class 1c property if it was used as the homestead of the owner, both properties
will be assessed as a single class 1c property; for purposes of this sentence, properties are
deemed to be owned by the same owner if each of them is owned by a limited liability
company, and both limited liability companies have the same membership. The portion of
the property used as a homestead is class 1a property under paragraph (a). The remainder
of the property is classified as follows: the first $600,000 of market value is tier I, the next
$1,700,000 of market value is tier II, and any remaining market value is tier III. The
classification rates for class 1c are: tier I, 0.50 percent; tier II, 1.0 percent; and tier III, 1.25
percent. Owners of real and personal property devoted to temporary and seasonal residential
occupancy for recreation purposes in which all or a portion of the property was devoted to
commercial purposes for not more than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment
desiring classification as class 1c, 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 designated as class 1c as otherwise provided.
The remainder of the cabins or units and a proportionate share of the land on which they
are located must be designated as class 3a commercial. The owner of property desiring
designation as class 1c property must provide guest registers or other records demonstrating
that the units for which class 1c 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 1c.

(d) Class 1d property includes structures that meet all of the following criteria:

(1) the structure is located on property that is classified as agricultural property under
section 273.13, subdivision 23;

(2) the structure is occupied exclusively by seasonal farm workers during the time when
they work on that farm, and the occupants are not charged rent for the privilege of occupying
the property, provided that use of the structure for storage of farm equipment and produce
does not disqualify the property from classification under this paragraph;

(3) the structure meets all applicable health and safety requirements for the appropriate
season; and

(4) the structure is not salable as residential property because it does not comply with
local ordinances relating to location in relation to streets or roads.

The market value of class 1d property has the same classification rates as class 1a property
under paragraph (a).

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 34, is amended
to read:


Subd. 34.

Homestead of disabled veteran with a disability or family caregiver.

(a)
All or a portion of the market value of property owned by a veteran and serving as the
veteran's homestead under this section is excluded in determining the property's taxable
market value if the veteran has a service-connected disability of 70 percent or more as
certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for exclusion
under this subdivision, the veteran must have been honorably discharged from the United
States armed forces, as indicated by United States Government Form DD214 or other official
military discharge papers.

(b)(1) For a disability rating of 70 percent or more, $150,000 of market value is excluded,
except as provided in clause (2); and

(2) for a total (100 percent) and permanent disability, $300,000 of market value is
excluded.

(c) If a disabled veteran with a disability qualifying for a valuation exclusion under
paragraph (b), clause (2), predeceases the veteran's spouse, and if upon the death of the
veteran the spouse holds the legal or beneficial title to the homestead and permanently
resides there, the exclusion shall carry over to the benefit of the veteran's spouse for the
current taxes payable year and for eight additional taxes payable years or until such time
as the spouse remarries, or sells, transfers, or otherwise disposes of the property, whichever
comes first. Qualification under this paragraph requires an application under paragraph (h),
and a spouse must notify the assessor if there is a change in the spouse's marital status,
ownership of the property, or use of the property as a permanent residence.

(d) If the spouse of a member of any branch or unit of the United States armed forces
who dies due to a service-connected cause while serving honorably in active service, as
indicated on United States Government Form DD1300 or DD2064, holds the legal or
beneficial title to a homestead and permanently resides there, the spouse is entitled to the
benefit described in paragraph (b), clause (2), for eight taxes payable years, or until such
time as the spouse remarries or sells, transfers, or otherwise disposes of the property,
whichever comes first.

(e) If a veteran meets the disability criteria of paragraph (a) but does not own property
classified as homestead in the state of Minnesota, then the homestead of the veteran's primary
family caregiver, if any, is eligible for the exclusion that the veteran would otherwise qualify
for under paragraph (b).

(f) In the case of an agricultural homestead, only the portion of the property consisting
of the house and garage and immediately surrounding one acre of land qualifies for the
valuation exclusion under this subdivision.

(g) A property qualifying for a valuation exclusion under this subdivision is not eligible
for the market value exclusion under subdivision 35, or classification under subdivision 22,
paragraph (b).

(h) To qualify for a valuation exclusion under this subdivision a property owner must
apply to the assessor by July 1 of the first assessment year for which the exclusion is sought.
For an application received after July 1, the exclusion shall become effective for the following
assessment year. Except as provided in paragraph (c), the owner of a property that has been
accepted for a valuation exclusion must notify the assessor if there is a change in ownership
of the property or in the use of the property as a homestead.

(i) A first-time application by a qualifying spouse for the market value exclusion under
paragraph (d) must be made any time within two years of the death of the service member.

(j) For purposes of this subdivision:

(1) "active service" has the meaning given in section 190.05;

(2) "own" means that the person's name is present as an owner on the property deed;

(3) "primary family caregiver" means a person who is approved by the secretary of the
United States Department of Veterans Affairs for assistance as the primary provider of
personal care services for an eligible veteran under the Program of Comprehensive Assistance
for Family Caregivers, codified as United States Code, title 38, section 1720G; and

(4) "veteran" has the meaning given the term in section 197.447.

(k) If a veteran dying after December 31, 2011, did not apply for or receive the exclusion
under paragraph (b), clause (2), before dying, the veteran's spouse is entitled to the benefit
under paragraph (b), clause (2), for eight taxes payable years or until the spouse remarries
or sells, transfers, or otherwise disposes of the property if:

(1) the spouse files a first-time application within two years of the death of the service
member or by June 1, 2019, whichever is later;

as determined by the motor vehicle registrar. The purchase price in those instances where

between a foster parent and foster child. For purposes of this subdivision, a foster relationship
