Subd. 3.

Assessor sanctions; refusal to license.

(a) Following a recommendation from
the commissioner of revenue,
the board may (i) refuse to grant or renew, or may suspend
or revoke, a license of an applicant or licensee, or (ii) censure, warn, or fine any licensed
assessor, or any other person employed by an assessment jurisdiction or contracting with
an assessment jurisdiction for the purpose of valuing or classifying property for property
tax purposes, for any of the following causes or acts:

(1) failure to complete required training;

(2) inefficiency or neglect of duty;

(3) failure to comply with the Code of Conduct and Ethics for Licensed Minnesota
Assessors adopted by the board pursuant to Laws 2005, First Special Session chapter 3,
article 1, section 38;

(4) conviction of a crime involving moral turpitude;

(5) failure to faithfully and fully perform his or her duties through malfeasance,
misfeasance, or nonfeasance; or

(6) any other cause or act that in the board's opinion warrants a refusal to issue a license
or the imposition of a sanction provided under this subdivision.

(b) When appropriate for the level of infraction, a written warning must be given to
assessors who have no prior identified infractions. The warning must identify the infraction
and, as appropriate, detail future expectations of performance and behavior. Fines must not

Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 272.115, subdivision 1, is amended
to read:


Subdivision 1.

Requirement.

Except as otherwise provided in subdivision 5, 6, or 7,
whenever any real estate is sold for a consideration in excess of $1,000 $3,000, whether by
warranty deed, quitclaim deed, contract for deed or any other method of sale, the grantor,
grantee or the legal agent of either shall file a certificate of value with the county auditor
in the county in which the property is located when the deed or other document is presented
for recording. Contract for deeds are subject to recording under section 507.235, subdivision
1
. Value shall, in the case of any deed not a gift, be the amount of the full actual consideration
thereof, paid or to be paid, including the amount of any lien or liens assumed. The items
and value of personal property transferred with the real property must be listed and deducted
from the sale price. The certificate of value shall include the classification to which the
property belongs for the purpose of determining the fair market value of the property, and
shall include any proposed change in use of the property known to the person filing the
certificate that could change the classification of the property. The certificate shall include
financing terms and conditions of the sale which are necessary to determine the actual,
present value of the sale price for purposes of the sales ratio study. If the property is being
acquired as part of a like-kind exchange under section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code
of 1986, as amended through December 31, 2006, that must be indicated on the certificate.
The commissioner of revenue shall promulgate administrative rules specifying the financing
terms and conditions which must be included on the certificate. The certificate of value
must include the Social Security number or the federal employer identification number of
the grantors and grantees. However, a married person who is not an owner of record and
who is signing a conveyance instrument along with the person's spouse solely to release
and convey their marital interest, if any, in the real property being conveyed is not a grantor
for the purpose of the preceding sentence. A statement in the deed that is substantially in
the following form is sufficient to allow the county auditor to accept a certificate for filing
without the Social Security number of the named spouse: "(Name) claims no ownership
interest in the real property being conveyed and is executing this instrument solely to release
and convey a marital interest, if any, in that real property." The identification numbers of
the grantors and grantees are private data on individuals or nonpublic data as defined in
section 13.02, subdivisions 9 and 12, but, notwithstanding that section, the private or
nonpublic data may be disclosed to the commissioner of revenue for purposes of tax
administration. The information required to be shown on the certificate of value is limited
to the information required as of the date of the acknowledgment on the deed or other
document to be recorded.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective for certificates of value filed after
December 31, 2018.

Sec. 4.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 287.21, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Determination of tax.

(a) A tax is imposed on each deed or instrument
by which any real property in this state is granted, assigned, transferred, or otherwise
conveyed. The tax applies against the net consideration. For purposes of the tax, the
conversion of a corporation to a limited liability company, a limited liability company to a
corporation, a partnership to a limited partnership, a limited partnership to another limited
partnership or other entity, or a similar conversion of one entity to another does not grant,
assign, transfer, or convey real property.

(b) The tax is determined in the following manner: (1) when transfers are made by
instruments pursuant to (i) consolidations or mergers, or (ii) designated transfers, the tax is
$1.65; (2) when there is no consideration or when the consideration, exclusive of the value
of any lien or encumbrance remaining thereon at the time of sale, is $500 $3,000 or less,
the tax is $1.65; or (3) when the consideration, exclusive of the value of any lien or
encumbrance remaining at the time of sale, exceeds $500 $3,000, the tax is .0033 of the net
consideration.

(c) If, within six months from the date of a designated transfer, an ownership interest in
the grantee entity is transferred by an initial owner to any person or entity with the result
that the designated transfer would not have been a designated transfer if made to the grantee
entity with its subsequent ownership, then a tax is imposed at .0033 of the net consideration
for the designated transfer. If the subsequent transfer of ownership interests was reasonably
expected at the time of the designated transfer, the applicable penalty under section 287.31,
subdivision 1
, must be paid. The deed tax imposed under this paragraph is due within 30
days of the subsequent transfer that caused the tax to be imposed under this paragraph.
Involuntary transfers of ownership shall not be considered transfers of ownership under this
paragraph. The commissioner may adopt rules defining the types of transfers to be considered
involuntary.

(d) The tax is due at the time a taxable deed or instrument is presented for recording,
except as provided in paragraph (c). The commissioner may require the tax to be documented
in a manner prescribed by the commissioner, and may require that the documentation be
attached to and recorded as part of the deed or instrument. The county recorder or registrar
of titles shall accept the attachment for recording as part of the deed or instrument and may
not require, as a condition of recording a deed or instrument, evidence that a transfer is a
designated transfer in addition to that required by the commissioner. Such an attachment
shall not, however, provide actual or constructive notice of the information contained therein
for purposes of determining any interest in the real property. The commissioner shall
prescribe the manner in which the tax due under paragraph (c) is to be paid and may require
grantees of designated transfers to file with the commissioner subsequent statements verifying
that the tax provided under paragraph (c) does not apply.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective for deeds recorded after December 31,
2018.

obtain access to lodging, including ancillary or related services, such as services provided
by an accommodations intermediary as defined in section 297A.61, subdivision 47, and
similar services.

EFFECTIVE DATE; APPLICATION.

This section is effective the day following
final enactment. In enacting this section, the legislature confirms that Minnesota Statutes,
section 469.190, its predecessor provisions, and any special laws authorizing political
subdivisions to impose local lodging taxes, were and are intended to apply to the entire
consideration paid to obtain access to lodging, including ancillary or related services, such
as services provided by an accommodations intermediary as defined in Minnesota Statutes,
section 297A.61, subdivision 47, and similar services. The provisions of this section must
not be interpreted to imply a narrower construction of the tax base under the lodging tax
provisions of Minnesota law prior to the enactment of this section.

interest, penalties, and other rules and that its proceeds, less the cost of collection, shall be
remitted to the city.

Minnesota Statutes 2017 Supplement, section 270C.445, subdivision 6, is
amended to read:


Subd. 6.

Enforcement; administrative order; penalties; cease and desist.

(a) The
commissioner may impose an administrative penalty of not more than $1,000 per violation
of subdivision 3 or 5, or section 270C.4451, provided that a penalty may not be imposed
for any conduct for which a tax preparer penalty is imposed under section 289A.60,
subdivision 13
. The commissioner may terminate a tax preparer's authority to transmit
returns electronically to the state, if the commissioner determines the tax preparer engaged
in a pattern and practice of violating this section. Imposition of a penalty under this paragraph
is subject to the contested case procedure under chapter 14. The commissioner shall collect
the penalty in the same manner as the income tax. There is no right to make a claim for
refund under section 289A.50 of the penalty imposed under this paragraph. Penalties imposed
under this paragraph are public data.

(b) In addition to the penalty under paragraph (a), if the commissioner determines that
a tax preparer has violated subdivision 3 or 5, or section 270C.4451, the commissioner may
issue an administrative order to the tax preparer requiring the tax preparer to cease and
desist from committing the violation. The administrative order may include an administrative
penalty provided in paragraph (a).

(c) If the commissioner issues an administrative order under paragraph (b), the
commissioner must send the order to the tax preparer addressed to the last known address
of the tax preparer.

(d) A cease and desist order under paragraph (b) must:

(1) describe the act, conduct, or practice committed and include a reference to the law
that the act, conduct, or practice violates; and

(2) provide notice that the tax preparer may request a hearing as provided in this
subdivision.

(e) Within 30 days after the commissioner issues an administrative order under paragraph
(b), the tax preparer may request a hearing to review the commissioner's action. The request
for hearing must be made in writing and must be served on the commissioner at the address
specified in the order. The hearing request must specifically state the reasons for seeking
review of the order. The date on which a request for hearing is served by mail is the postmark
date on the envelope in which the request for hearing is mailed.

(f) If a tax preparer does not timely request a hearing regarding an administrative order
issued under paragraph (b), the order becomes a final order of the commissioner and is not
subject to review by any court or agency.

(g) If a tax preparer timely requests a hearing regarding an administrative order issued
under paragraph (b), the hearing must be commenced within ten days after the commissioner
receives the request for a hearing.

(h) A hearing timely requested under paragraph (e) is subject to the contested case
procedure under chapter 14, as modified by this subdivision. The administrative law judge
must issue a report containing findings of fact, conclusions of law, and a recommended
order within ten days after the completion of the hearing, the receipt of late-filed exhibits,
or the submission of written arguments, whichever is later.

(i) Within five days of the date of the administrative law judge's report issued under
paragraph (h), any party aggrieved by the administrative law judge's report may submit
written exceptions and arguments to the commissioner. Within 15 days after receiving the
administrative law judge's report, the commissioner must issue an order vacating, modifying,
or making final the administrative order.

(j) The commissioner and the tax preparer requesting a hearing may by agreement
lengthen any time periods prescribed in paragraphs (g) to (i).

(k) An administrative order issued under paragraph (b) is in effect until it is modified
or vacated by the commissioner or an appellate court. The administrative hearing provided
by paragraphs (e) to (i) and any appellate judicial review as provided in chapter 14 constitute
the exclusive remedy for a tax preparer aggrieved by the order.

(l) The commissioner may impose an administrative penalty, in addition to the penalty
under paragraph (a), up to $5,000 per violation of a cease and desist order issued under
paragraph (b). Imposition of a penalty under this paragraph is subject to the contested case
procedure under chapter 14. Within 30 days after the commissioner imposes a penalty under
this paragraph, the tax preparer assessed the penalty may request a hearing to review the
penalty order. The request for hearing must be made in writing and must be served on the
commissioner at the address specified in the order. The hearing request must specifically
state the reasons for seeking review of the order. The cease and desist order issued under
paragraph (b) is not subject to review in a proceeding to challenge the penalty order under
this paragraph. The date on which a request for hearing is served by mail is the postmark
date on the envelope in which the request for hearing is mailed. If the tax preparer does not
timely request a hearing, the penalty order becomes a final order of the commissioner and
is not subject to review by any court or agency. A penalty imposed by the commissioner
under this paragraph may be collected and enforced by the commissioner as an income tax
liability. There is no right to make a claim for refund under section 289A.50 of the penalty
imposed under this paragraph. A penalty imposed under this paragraph is public data.

(m) If a tax preparer violates a cease and desist order issued under paragraph (b), the
commissioner may terminate the tax preparer's authority to transmit returns electronically
to the state. Termination under this paragraph is public data.

(n) A cease and desist order issued under paragraph (b) is public data when it is a final
order.

(o) Notwithstanding any other law, the commissioner may impose a penalty or take other
action under this subdivision against a tax preparer, with respect to a return, within the
period to assess tax on that return as provided by section sections 289A.38 to 289A.384.

(p) Notwithstanding any other law, the imposition of a penalty or any other action against
a tax preparer under this subdivision, other than with respect to a return, must be taken by
the commissioner within five years of the violation of statute.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective for tax years beginning after December
31, 2017, except that for partnerships that make an election under Code of Federal
Regulations, title 26, section 301.9100-22T, this section is effective retroactively and applies
to the same tax periods to which the election relates.

conducted under section sections 289A.38 to 289A.384.

The report must be submitted within 180 days after the final determination and must be in the form of either an amended Minnesota estate, withholding tax, corporate franchise tax, or income tax return conceding the accuracy of the federal determination or a letter detailing how the federal determination is incorrect or does not change the Minnesota tax. An amended Minnesota income tax return must be accompanied by an amended property tax refund return, if necessary. A taxpayer filing an amended federal tax return must also file a copy of the amended return with the commissioner of revenue within 180 days after filing the amended return.

If a taxpayer fails to make a report as required by subdivision 7, the commissioner may recompute the tax, including a refund, based on information available to the commissioner. The tax may be recomputed within six years after the report should have been filed, notwithstanding any period of limitations to the contrary.

Subd. 9.

Report made of change or correction of federal return.

If a taxpayer is required to make a report under subdivision 7, and does report the change or files a copy of the amended return, the commissioner may recompute and reassess the tax due, including a refund (1) within one year after the report or amended return is filed with the commissioner, notwithstanding any period of limitations to the contrary, or (2) within any other applicable period stated in this section, whichever period is longer. The period provided for the carryback of any amount of loss or credit is also extended as provided in this subdivision, notwithstanding any law to the contrary. If the commissioner has completed a field audit of the taxpayer, and, but for this subdivision, the commissioner's time period to adjust the tax has expired, the additional tax due or refund is limited to only those changes that are required to be made to the return which relate to the changes made on the federal return. This subdivision does not apply to sales and use tax.
