2013, and in each subsequent year, from the 12 months ending on August 31, 2008, to the
12 months ending on August 31 of the year preceding the taxable year. The earned income
thresholds as adjusted for inflation must be rounded to the nearest $10. If the amount ends
in $5, the amount is rounded up to the nearest $10. The determination of the commissioner
under this subdivision is not a rule under the Administrative Procedure Act.

The earned income amounts used to calculate the credit and the income thresholds at which the maximum credit begins to be reduced in subdivision 1 must be adjusted for inflation. The commissioner shall adjust by the percentage determined pursuant to the provisions of section 1(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, except that in section 1(f)(3)(B) the word "2013" shall be substituted for the word "1992." For 2015, the commissioner shall then determine the percent change from the 12 months ending on August 31, 2013, to the 12 months ending on August 31, 2014, and in each subsequent year, from the 12 months ending on August 31, 2013, to the 12 months ending on August 31 of the year preceding the taxable year. The earned income thresholds as adjusted for inflation must be rounded to the nearest $10 amount. If the amount ends in $5, the amount is rounded up to the nearest $10 amount. The determination of the commissioner under this subdivision is not a rule under the Administrative Procedure Act.
