ARTICLE 1

FEDERAL RESPONSE

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 270A.03, subdivision 5, is amended to read:


Subd. 5.

Debt; debtor.

(a) "Debt" means a legal obligation of a natural person to pay a
fixed and certain amount of money, which equals or exceeds $25 and which is due and
payable to a claimant agency. The term includes criminal fines imposed under section 609.10
or 609.125, fines imposed for petty misdemeanors as defined in section 609.02, subdivision
4a
, and restitution. A debt may arise under a contractual or statutory obligation, a court
order, or other legal obligation, but need not have been reduced to judgment.

A debt includes any legal obligation of a current recipient of assistance which is based
on overpayment of an assistance grant where that payment is based on a client waiver or
an administrative or judicial finding of an intentional program violation; or where the debt
is owed to a program wherein the debtor is not a client at the time notification is provided
to initiate recovery under this chapter and the debtor is not a current recipient of food support,
transitional child care, or transitional medical assistance.

(b) A debt does not include any legal obligation to pay a claimant agency for medical
care, including hospitalization if the income of the debtor at the time when the medical care
was rendered does not exceed the following amount:

(1) for an unmarried debtor, an income of $12,560 or less;

(2) for a debtor with one dependent, an income of $16,080 or less;

(3) for a debtor with two dependents, an income of $19,020 or less;

(4) for a debtor with three dependents, an income of $21,580 or less;

(5) for a debtor with four dependents, an income of $22,760 or less; and

(6) for a debtor with five or more dependents, an income of $23,730 or less.

For purposes of this paragraph, "debtor" means the individual whose income, together
with the income of the individual's spouse, other than a separated spouse, brings the
individual within the income provisions of this paragraph. For purposes of this paragraph,
a spouse, other than a separated spouse, shall be considered a dependent.

(c) The commissioner shall adjust the income amounts in paragraph (b) by the percentage
determined pursuant to the provisions of section 1(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, new text beginas
amended through December 16, 2016,
new text endexcept that in section 1(f)(3)(B) the word "2014"
shall be substituted for the word "1992." For 2016, the commissioner shall then determine
the percent change from the 12 months ending on August 31, 2014, to the 12 months ending
on August 31, 2015, and in each subsequent year, from the 12 months ending on August
31, 2014, to the 12 months ending on August 31 of the year preceding the taxable year. The

Sec. 4.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 289A.08, subdivision 7, is amended to read:


Subd. 7.

Composite income tax returns for nonresident partners, shareholders, and
beneficiaries.

(a) The commissioner may allow a partnership with nonresident partners to
file a composite return and to pay the tax on behalf of nonresident partners who have no
other Minnesota source income. This composite return must include the names, addresses,
Social Security numbers, income allocation, and tax liability for the nonresident partners
electing to be covered by the composite return.

(b) The computation of a partner's tax liability must be determined by multiplying the
income allocated to that partner by the highest rate used to determine the tax liability for
individuals under section 290.06, subdivision 2c. Nonbusiness deductions, standard
deductions, or personal exemptions are not allowed.

(c) The partnership must submit a request to use this composite return filing method for
nonresident partners. The requesting partnership must file a composite return in the form
prescribed by the commissioner of revenue. The filing of a composite return is considered
a request to use the composite return filing method.

(d) The electing partner must not have any Minnesota source income other than the
income from the partnership and other electing partnerships. If it is determined that the
electing partner has other Minnesota source income, the inclusion of the income and tax
liability for that partner under this provision will not constitute a return to satisfy the
requirements of subdivision 1. The tax paid for the individual as part of the composite return
is allowed as a payment of the tax by the individual on the date on which the composite
return payment was made. If the electing nonresident partner has no other Minnesota source
income, filing of the composite return is a return for purposes of subdivision 1.

(e) This subdivision does not negate the requirement that an individual pay estimated
tax if the individual's liability would exceed the requirements set forth in section 289A.25.
The individual's liability to pay estimated tax is, however, satisfied when the partnership
pays composite estimated tax in the manner prescribed in section 289A.25.

(f) If an electing partner's share of the partnership's gross income from Minnesota sources
is less than the filing requirements for a nonresident under this subdivision, the tax liability
is zero. However, a statement showing the partner's share of gross income must be included
as part of the composite return.

(g) The election provided in this subdivision is only available to a partner who has no
other Minnesota source income and who is either (1) a full-year nonresident individual or
(2) a trust or estate that does not claim a deduction under either section 651 or 661 of the
Internal Revenue Code.

(h) A corporation defined in section 290.9725 and its nonresident shareholders may
make an election under this paragraph. The provisions covering the partnership apply to
the corporation and the provisions applying to the partner apply to the shareholder.

(i) Estates and trusts distributing current income only and the nonresident individual
beneficiaries of the estates or trusts may make an election under this paragraph. The
provisions covering the partnership apply to the estate or trust. The provisions applying to
the partner apply to the beneficiary.

(j) For the purposes of this subdivision, "income" means the partner's share of federal
adjusted gross income from the partnership modified by the additions provided in section
290.0131, subdivisions 8 to deleted text begin11deleted text endnew text begin 10 and 17new text end, and the subtractions provided in: (1) section
290.0132, subdivision 9, to the extent the amount is assignable or allocable to Minnesota

under section 290.0132, subdivision 9, is only allowed on the composite tax computation
to the extent the electing partner would have been allowed the subtraction.

eligible for a credit under section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code may also receive a credit.

(b) For individuals with no qualifying children, the credit equals 2.10 percent of the first

income or adjusted gross income, whichever is greater, in excess of $25,130, but in no case
is the credit less than zero.

(e) For a part-year resident, the credit must be allocated based on the percentage calculated
under section 290.06, subdivision 2c, paragraph (e).

(f) For a person who was a resident for the entire tax year and has earned income not
subject to tax under this chapter, including income excluded under section 290.0132,
subdivision 10
, the credit must be allocated based on the ratio of federal adjusted gross
income reduced by the earned income not subject to tax under this chapter over federal

$21,190 in paragraph (c), and the $25,130 in paragraph (d), after being adjusted for inflation
under subdivision 7, are each increased by $5,000 for married taxpayers filing joint returns.

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.

(h) The commissioner shall construct tables showing the amount of the credit at various
income levels and make them available to taxpayers. The tables shall follow the schedule
contained in this subdivision, except that the commissioner may graduate the transition
between income brackets.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 290.17, subdivision 2, is amended to read:


Subd. 2.

Income not derived from conduct of a trade or business.

The income of a
taxpayer subject to the allocation rules that is not derived from the conduct of a trade or
business must be assigned in accordance with paragraphs (a) to (f):

(a)(1) Subject to paragraphs (a)(2) and (a)(3), income from wages as defined in section
3401(a) deleted text beginanddeleted text endnew text begin,new text end (f)new text begin, and (i)new text end of the Internal Revenue Code is assigned to this state if, and to the
extent that, the work of the employee is performed within it; all other income from such
sources is treated as income from sources without this state.

Severance pay shall be considered income from labor or personal or professional services.

(2) In the case of an individual who is a nonresident of Minnesota and who is an athlete
or entertainer, income from compensation for labor or personal services performed within
this state shall be determined in the following manner:

(i) the amount of income to be assigned to Minnesota for an individual who is a
nonresident salaried athletic team employee shall be determined by using a fraction in which
the denominator contains the total number of days in which the individual is under a duty
to perform for the employer, and the numerator is the total number of those days spent in
Minnesota. For purposes of this paragraph, off-season training activities, unless conducted
at the team's facilities as part of a team imposed program, are not included in the total number
of duty days. Bonuses earned as a result of play during the regular season or for participation
in championship, play-off, or all-star games must be allocated under the formula. Signing
bonuses are not subject to allocation under the formula if they are not conditional on playing
any games for the team, are payable separately from any other compensation, and are
nonrefundable; and

(ii) the amount of income to be assigned to Minnesota for an individual who is a
nonresident, and who is an athlete or entertainer not listed in item (i), for that person's athletic
or entertainment performance in Minnesota shall be determined by assigning to this state
all income from performances or athletic contests in this state.

(3) For purposes of this section, amounts received by a nonresident as "retirement income"
as defined in section (b)(1) of the State Income Taxation of Pension Income Act, Public
Law 104-95, are not considered income derived from carrying on a trade or business or
from wages or other compensation for work an employee performed in Minnesota, and are
not taxable under this chapter.

(b) Income or gains from tangible property located in this state that is not employed in
the business of the recipient of the income or gains must be assigned to this state.

(c) Income or gains from intangible personal property not employed in the business of
the recipient of the income or gains must be assigned to this state if the recipient of the
income or gains is a resident of this state or is a resident trust or estate.

Gain on the sale of a partnership interest is allocable to this state in the ratio of the
original cost of partnership tangible property in this state to the original cost of partnership
tangible property everywhere, determined at the time of the sale. If more than 50 percent
of the value of the partnership's assets consists of intangibles, gain or loss from the sale of
the partnership interest is allocated to this state in accordance with the sales factor of the
partnership for its first full tax period immediately preceding the tax period of the partnership
during which the partnership interest was sold.

Gain on the sale of an interest in a single member limited liability company that is
disregarded for federal income tax purposes is allocable to this state as if the single member
limited liability company did not exist and the assets of the limited liability company are
personally owned by the sole member.

Gain on the sale of goodwill or income from a covenant not to compete that is connected
with a business operating all or partially in Minnesota is allocated to this state to the extent
that the income from the business in the year preceding the year of sale was allocable to
Minnesota under subdivision 3.

When an employer pays an employee for a covenant not to compete, the income allocated
to this state is in the ratio of the employee's service in Minnesota in the calendar year
preceding leaving the employment of the employer over the total services performed by the
employee for the employer in that year.

(d) Income from winnings on a bet made by an individual while in Minnesota is assigned
to this state. In this paragraph, "bet" has the meaning given in section 609.75, subdivision
2
, as limited by section 609.75, subdivision 3, clauses (1), (2), and (3).

(e) All items of gross income not covered in paragraphs (a) to (d) and not part of the
taxpayer's income from a trade or business shall be assigned to the taxpayer's domicile.

(f) For the purposes of this section, working as an employee shall not be considered to
be conducting a trade or business.

credit equal to 25 percent of the qualified investment in a qualified small business.
Investments made by a pass-through entity qualify for a credit only if the entity is a qualified

2014, and before January 1,
deleted text end 2018,new text begin and before January 1, 2021. For each taxable year,new text end 50
percent must be allocated to credits for qualifying investments in qualified greater Minnesota
businesses and minority- or women-owned qualified small businesses in Minnesota. Any
portion of a taxable year's credits that is reserved for qualifying investments in greater
Minnesota businesses and minority- or women-owned qualified small businesses in
Minnesota that is not allocated by September 30 of the taxable year is available for allocation
to other credit applications beginning on October 1. Any portion of a taxable year's credits
that is not allocated by the commissioner does not cancel and may be carried forward to
subsequent taxable years until all credits have been allocated.

(b) The commissioner may not allocate more than a total maximum amount in credits
for a taxable year to a qualified investor for the investor's cumulative qualified investments
as an individual qualified investor and as an investor in a qualified fund; for married couples
filing joint returns the maximum is $250,000, and for all other filers the maximum is
$125,000. The commissioner may not allocate more than a total of $1,000,000 in credits
over all taxable years for qualified investments in any one qualified small business.

(c) The commissioner may not allocate a credit to a qualified investor either as an
individual qualified investor or as an investor in a qualified fund if, at the time the investment
is proposed:

(1) the investor is an officer or principal of the qualified small business; or

(2) the investor, either individually or in combination with one or more members of the
investor's family, owns, controls, or holds the power to vote 20 percent or more of the
outstanding securities of the qualified small business.

A member of the family of an individual disqualified by this paragraph is not eligible for a
credit under this section. For a married couple filing a joint return, the limitations in this
paragraph apply collectively to the investor and spouse. For purposes of determining the
ownership interest of an investor under this paragraph, the rules under section 267(c) and
267(e) of the Internal Revenue Code apply.

(d) Applications for tax credits for 2010 must be made available on the department's
website by September 1, 2010, and the department must begin accepting applications by
September 1, 2010. Applications for subsequent years must be made available by November
1 of the preceding year.

(e) Qualified investors and qualified funds must apply to the commissioner for tax credits.
Tax credits must be allocated to qualified investors or qualified funds in the order that the
tax credit request applications are filed with the department. The commissioner must approve
or reject tax credit request applications within 15 days of receiving the application. The
investment specified in the application must be made within 60 days of the allocation of
the credits. If the investment is not made within 60 days, the credit allocation is canceled
and available for reallocation. A qualified investor or qualified fund that fails to invest as
specified in the application, within 60 days of allocation of the credits, must notify the
commissioner of the failure to invest within five business days of the expiration of the
60-day investment period.

(f) All tax credit request applications filed with the department on the same day must
be treated as having been filed contemporaneously. If two or more qualified investors or
qualified funds file tax credit request applications on the same day, and the aggregate amount
of credit allocation claims exceeds the aggregate limit of credits under this section or the
lesser amount of credits that remain unallocated on that day, then the credits must be allocated
among the qualified investors or qualified funds who filed on that day on a pro rata basis
with respect to the amounts claimed. The pro rata allocation for any one qualified investor
or qualified fund is the product obtained by multiplying a fraction, the numerator of which
is the amount of the credit allocation claim filed on behalf of a qualified investor and the
denominator of which is the total of all credit allocation claims filed on behalf of all
applicants on that day, by the amount of credits that remain unallocated on that day for the
taxable year.

(g) A qualified investor or qualified fund, or a qualified small business acting on their
behalf, must notify the commissioner when an investment for which credits were allocated
has been made, and the taxable year in which the investment was made. A qualified fund
must also provide the commissioner with a statement indicating the amount invested by
each investor in the qualified fund based on each investor's share of the assets of the qualified
fund at the time of the qualified investment. After receiving notification that the investment
was made, the commissioner must issue credit certificates for the taxable year in which the
investment was made to the qualified investor or, for an investment made by a qualified
fund, to each qualified investor who is an investor in the fund. The certificate must state
that the credit is subject to revocation if the qualified investor or qualified fund does not
hold the investment in the qualified small business for at least three years, consisting of the
calendar year in which the investment was made and the two following years. The three-year
holding period does not apply if:

(1) the investment by the qualified investor or qualified fund becomes worthless before
the end of the three-year period;

(2) 80 percent or more of the assets of the qualified small business is sold before the end
of the three-year period;

(3) the qualified small business is sold before the end of the three-year period;

(4) the qualified small business's common stock begins trading on a public exchange
before the end of the three-year period; or

(5) the qualified investor dies before the end of the three-year period.

(h) The commissioner must notify the commissioner of revenue of credit certificates
issued under this section.

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, 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 deleted text begin$1,000deleted text endnew text begin $3,000new text end, 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.

Sec. 2.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 273.124, subdivision 13, is amended to read:


Subd. 13.

Homestead application.

(a) A person who meets the homestead requirements
under subdivision 1 must file a homestead application with the county assessor to initially
obtain homestead classification.

(b) The commissioner shall prescribe the content, format, and manner of the homestead
application required to be filed under this chapter pursuant to section 270C.30. The
application must clearly inform the taxpayer that this application must be signed by all
owners who occupy the property or by the qualifying relative and returned to the county
assessor in order for the property to receive homestead treatment.

(c) Every property owner applying for homestead classification must furnish to the
county assessor the Social Security number new text beginor individual tax identification number new text endof each
occupant who is listed as an owner of the property on the deed of record, the name and
address of each owner who does not occupy the property, and the name and Social Security
number new text beginor individual tax identification number new text endof each owner's spouse. The application
must be signed by each owner who occupies the property and by each owner's spouse who
occupies the property, or, in the case of property that qualifies as a homestead under
subdivision 1, paragraph (c), by the qualifying relative.

If a property owner occupies a homestead, the property owner's spouse may not claim
another property as a homestead unless the property owner and the property owner's spouse
file with the assessor an affidavit or other proof required by the assessor stating that the
property qualifies as a homestead under subdivision 1, paragraph (e).

Owners or spouses occupying residences owned by their spouses and previously occupied
with the other spouse, either of whom fail to include the other spouse's name and Social
Security number new text beginor individual tax identification number new text endon the homestead application or
provide the affidavits or other proof requested, will be deemed to have elected to receive
only partial homestead treatment of their residence. The remainder of the residence will be
classified as nonhomestead residential. When an owner or spouse's name and Social Security
number new text beginor individual tax identification number new text endappear on homestead applications for two
separate residences and only one application is signed, the owner or spouse will be deemed
to have elected to homestead the residence for which the application was signed.

(d) If residential real estate is occupied and used for purposes of a homestead by a relative
of the owner and qualifies for a homestead under subdivision 1, paragraph (c), in order for
the property to receive homestead status, a homestead application must be filed with the
assessor. The Social Security number new text beginor individual tax identification number new text endof each relative
occupying the property and the name and Social Security number new text beginor individual tax
identification number
new text endof the spouse of a relative occupying the property shall be required
on the homestead application filed under this subdivision. If a different relative of the owner
subsequently occupies the property, the owner of the property must notify the assessor
within 30 days of the change in occupancy. The Social Security number new text beginor individual tax
identification number
new text endof a relative occupying the property or the spouse of a relative
occupying the property is private data on individuals as defined by section 13.02, subdivision
12
, but may be disclosed to the commissioner of revenue, or, for the purposes of proceeding
under the Revenue Recapture Act to recover personal property taxes owing, to the county
treasurer.

(e) The homestead application shall also notify the property owners that if the property
is granted homestead status for any assessment year, that same property shall remain
classified as homestead until the property is sold or transferred to another person, or the
owners, the spouse of the owner, or the relatives no longer use the property as their
homestead. Upon the sale or transfer of the homestead property, a certificate of value must
be timely filed with the county auditor as provided under section 272.115. Failure to notify
the assessor within 30 days that the property has been sold, transferred, or that the owner,
the spouse of the owner, or the relative is no longer occupying the property as a homestead,
shall result in the penalty provided under this subdivision and the property will lose its
current homestead status.

(f) If a homestead application has not been filed with the county by December 15, the
assessor shall classify the property as nonhomestead for the current assessment year for
taxes payable in the following year, provided that the owner may be entitled to receive the
homestead classification by proper application under section 375.192.

properties, as long as the homestead remains under the same ownership, the owner owns a
noncontiguous parcel of agricultural land that is at least 20 acres, and the agricultural use
value qualifies under clause (4). Homestead classification under this paragraph is limited

273.13, subdivision 23, paragraph (a), for the 1997 assessment shall remain classified as
agricultural homesteads for subsequent assessments if:

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

Subd. 3.

Notice of proposed property taxes.

(a) The county auditor shall prepare and
the county treasurer shall deliver after November 10 and on or before November 24 each
year, by first class mail to each taxpayer at the address listed on the county's current year's
assessment roll, a notice of proposed property taxes. Upon written request by the taxpayer,
the treasurer may send the notice in electronic form or by electronic mail instead of on paper
or by ordinary mail.

(b) The commissioner of revenue shall prescribe the form of the notice.

(c) The notice must inform taxpayers that it contains the amount of property taxes each
taxing authority proposes to collect for taxes payable the following year. In the case of a
town, or in the case of the state general tax, the final tax amount will be its proposed tax.
The notice must clearly state for each city that has a population over 500, county, school
district, regional library authority established under section 134.201, and metropolitan taxing
districts as defined in paragraph (i), the time and place of a meeting for each taxing authority
in which the budget and levy will be discussed and public input allowed, prior to the final
budget and levy determination. The taxing authorities must provide the county auditor with
the information to be included in the notice on or before the time it certifies its proposed
levy under subdivision 1. The public must be allowed to speak at that meeting, which must
occur after November 24 and must not be held before 6:00 p.m. It must provide a telephone
number for the taxing authority that taxpayers may call if they have questions related to the
notice and an address where comments will be received by mail, except that no notice
required under this section shall be interpreted as requiring the printing of a personal
telephone number or address as the contact information for a taxing authority. If a taxing
authority does not maintain public offices where telephone calls can be received by the
authority, the authority may inform the county of the lack of a public telephone number and
the county shall not list a telephone number for that taxing authority.

(d) The notice must state for each parcel:

(1) the market value of the property as determined under section 273.11, and used for
computing property taxes payable in the following year and for taxes payable in the current
year as each appears in the records of the county assessor on November 1 of the current
year; and, in the case of residential property, whether the property is classified as homestead
or nonhomestead. The notice must clearly inform taxpayers of the years to which the market
values apply and that the values are final values;

(2) the items listed below, shown separately by county, city or town, and state general
tax, agricultural homestead credit under section 273.1384, school building bond agricultural
credit under section 273.1387new text begin, riparian buffer credit under section 273.1388new text end, voter approved
school levy, other local school levy, and the sum of the special taxing districts, and as a
total of all taxing authorities:

(i) the actual tax for taxes payable in the current year; and

(ii) the proposed tax amount.

If the county levy under clause (2) includes an amount for a lake improvement district
as defined under sections 103B.501 to 103B.581, the amount attributable for that purpose
must be separately stated from the remaining county levy amount.

In the case of a town or the state general tax, the final tax shall also be its proposed tax
unless the town changes its levy at a special town meeting under section 365.52. If a school
district has certified under section 126C.17, subdivision 9, that a referendum will be held
in the school district at the November general election, the county auditor must note next
to the school district's proposed amount that a referendum is pending and that, if approved
by the voters, the tax amount may be higher than shown on the notice. In the case of the
city of Minneapolis, the levy for Minneapolis Park and Recreation shall be listed separately
from the remaining amount of the city's levy. In the case of the city of St. Paul, the levy for
the St. Paul Library Agency must be listed separately from the remaining amount of the
city's levy. In the case of Ramsey County, any amount levied under section 134.07 may be
listed separately from the remaining amount of the county's levy. In the case of a parcel
where tax increment or the fiscal disparities areawide tax under chapter 276A or 473F
applies, the proposed tax levy on the captured value or the proposed tax levy on the tax
capacity subject to the areawide tax must each be stated separately and not included in the
sum of the special taxing districts; and

(3) the increase or decrease between the total taxes payable in the current year and the
total proposed taxes, expressed as a percentage.

For purposes of this section, the amount of the tax on homesteads qualifying under the
senior citizens' property tax deferral program under chapter 290B is the total amount of
property tax before subtraction of the deferred property tax amount.

(e) The notice must clearly state that the proposed or final taxes do not include the
following:

(1) special assessments;

(2) levies approved by the voters after the date the proposed taxes are certified, including
bond referenda and school district levy referenda;

(3) a levy limit increase approved by the voters by the first Tuesday after the first Monday
in November of the levy year as provided under section 275.73;

(4) amounts necessary to pay cleanup or other costs due to a natural disaster occurring
after the date the proposed taxes are certified;

(5) amounts necessary to pay tort judgments against the taxing authority that become
final after the date the proposed taxes are certified; and

(6) the contamination tax imposed on properties which received market value reductions
for contamination.

(f) Except as provided in subdivision 7, failure of the county auditor to prepare or the
county treasurer to deliver the notice as required in this section does not invalidate the
proposed or final tax levy or the taxes payable pursuant to the tax levy.

(g) If the notice the taxpayer receives under this section lists the property as
nonhomestead, and satisfactory documentation is provided to the county assessor by the
applicable deadline, and the property qualifies for the homestead classification in that
assessment year, the assessor shall reclassify the property to homestead for taxes payable
in the following year.

(h) In the case of class 4 residential property used as a residence for lease or rental
periods of 30 days or more, the taxpayer must either:

(1) mail or deliver a copy of the notice of proposed property taxes to each tenant, renter,
or lessee; or

(2) post a copy of the notice in a conspicuous place on the premises of the property.

The notice must be mailed or posted by the taxpayer by November 27 or within three
days of receipt of the notice, whichever is later. A taxpayer may notify the county treasurer
of the address of the taxpayer, agent, caretaker, or manager of the premises to which the
notice must be mailed in order to fulfill the requirements of this paragraph.

(i) For purposes of this subdivision and subdivision 6, "metropolitan special taxing
districts" means the following taxing districts in the seven-county metropolitan area that
levy a property tax for any of the specified purposes listed below:

(1) Metropolitan Council under section 473.132, 473.167, 473.249, 473.325, 473.446,
473.521, 473.547, or 473.834;

(2) Metropolitan Airports Commission under section 473.667, 473.671, or 473.672; and

(3) Metropolitan Mosquito Control Commission under section 473.711.

For purposes of this section, any levies made by the regional rail authorities in the county
of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, or Washington under chapter 398A
shall be included with the appropriate county's levy.

(j) The governing body of a county, city, or school district may, with the consent of the
county board, include supplemental information with the statement of proposed property
taxes about the impact of state aid increases or decreases on property tax increases or
decreases and on the level of services provided in the affected jurisdiction. This supplemental
information may include information for the following year, the current year, and for as
many consecutive preceding years as deemed appropriate by the governing body of the
county, city, or school district. It may include only information regarding:

(1) the impact of inflation as measured by the implicit price deflator for state and local
government purchases;

(2) population growth and decline;

(3) state or federal government action; and

(4) other financial factors that affect the level of property taxation and local services
that the governing body of the county, city, or school district may deem appropriate to
include.

The information may be presented using tables, written narrative, and graphic
representations and may contain instruction toward further sources of information or
opportunity for comment.

Subd. 2.

Contents of tax statements.

(a) The treasurer shall provide for the printing of
the tax statements. The commissioner of revenue shall prescribe the form of the property
tax statement and its contents. The tax statement must not state or imply that property tax
credits are paid by the state of Minnesota. The statement must contain a tabulated statement
of the dollar amount due to each taxing authority and the amount of the state tax from the
parcel of real property for which a particular tax statement is prepared. The dollar amounts
attributable to the county, the state tax, the voter approved school tax, the other local school
tax, the township or municipality, and the total of the metropolitan special taxing districts
as defined in section 275.065, subdivision 3, paragraph (i), must be separately stated. The
amounts due all other special taxing districts, if any, may be aggregated except that any
levies made by the regional rail authorities in the county of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin,
Ramsey, Scott, or Washington under chapter 398A shall be listed on a separate line directly
under the appropriate county's levy. If the county levy under this paragraph includes an
amount for a lake improvement district as defined under sections 103B.501 to 103B.581,
the amount attributable for that purpose must be separately stated from the remaining county
levy amount. In the case of Ramsey County, if the county levy under this paragraph includes
an amount for public library service under section 134.07, the amount attributable for that
purpose may be separated from the remaining county levy amount. The amount of the tax
on homesteads qualifying under the senior citizens' property tax deferral program under
chapter 290B is the total amount of property tax before subtraction of the deferred property
tax amount. The amount of the tax on contamination value imposed under sections 270.91
to 270.98, if any, must also be separately stated. The dollar amounts, including the dollar
amount of any special assessments, may be rounded to the nearest even whole dollar. For
purposes of this section whole odd-numbered dollars may be adjusted to the next higher
even-numbered dollar. The amount of market value excluded under section 273.11,
subdivision 16
, if any, must also be listed on the tax statement.

(b) The property tax statements for manufactured homes and sectional structures taxed
as personal property shall contain the same information that is required on the tax statements
for real property.

(c) Real and personal property tax statements must contain the following information
in the order given in this paragraph. The information must contain the current year tax
information in the right column with the corresponding information for the previous year
in a column on the left:

(1) the property's estimated market value under section 273.11, subdivision 1;

(2) the property's homestead market value exclusion under section 273.13, subdivision
35;

(3) the property's taxable market value under section 272.03, subdivision 15;

(4) the property's gross tax, before credits;

(5) for agricultural properties, the credits under sections 273.1384 deleted text beginanddeleted text endnew text begin,new text end 273.1387new text begin, and

273.1391; 273.1398, subdivision 4; 469.171; and 473H.10, except that the amount of credit
received under section 273.135 must be separately stated and identified as "taconite tax
relief"; and

(7) the net tax payable in the manner required in paragraph (a).

(d) If the county uses envelopes for mailing property tax statements and if the county
agrees, a taxing district may include a notice with the property tax statement notifying
taxpayers when the taxing district will begin its budget deliberations for the current year,
and encouraging taxpayers to attend the hearings. If the county allows notices to be included
in the envelope containing the property tax statement, and if more than one taxing district
relative to a given property decides to include a notice with the tax statement, the county
treasurer or auditor must coordinate the process and may combine the information on a
single announcement.

Sec. 15.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, 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 deleted text begin$500deleted text endnew text begin $3,000new text end 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 deleted text begin$500deleted text endnew text begin $3,000new text end, 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.

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,

(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
275.29 that was not reported on the abstracts of assessment submitted under section 270C.89
