state-owned or leased electronic data processing equipment, for information technology

Sec. 6.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 16A.134, is amended to read:


16A.134 CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS.

Sec. 7.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 16A.15, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Allotment and encumbrance.

(a) A payment may not be made without prior
obligation. An obligation may not be incurred against any fund, allotment, or appropriation
unless the commissioner has certified a sufficient unencumbered balance or the accounting
system shows sufficient allotment or encumbrance balance in the fund, allotment, or
appropriation to meet it. The commissioner shall determine when the accounting system
may be used to incur obligations without the commissioner's certification of a sufficient
unencumbered balance. An expenditure or obligation authorized or incurred in violation of
this chapter is invalid and ineligible for payment until made valid. A payment made in
violation of this chapter is illegal. An employee authorizing or making the payment, or
taking part in it, and a person receiving any part of the payment, are jointly and severally
liable to the state for the amount paid or received. If an employee knowingly incurs an
obligation or authorizes or makes an expenditure in violation of this chapter or takes part
in the violation, the violation is just cause for the employee's removal by the appointing
authority or by the governor if an appointing authority other than the governor fails to do
so. In the latter case, the governor shall give notice of the violation and an opportunity to
be heard on it to the employee and to the appointing authority. A claim presented against
an appropriation without prior allotment or encumbrance may be made valid on investigation,
review, and approval by the agency head in accordance with the commissioner's policy, if
the services, materials, or supplies to be paid for were actually furnished in good faith
without collusion and without intent to defraud. The commissioner may then deleted text begindraw a warrant
to
deleted text end pay the claim just as properly allotted and encumbered claims are paid.

(b) The commissioner may approve payment for materials and supplies in excess of the
obligation amount when increases are authorized by section 16C.03, subdivision 3.

(c) To minimize potential construction delay claims, an agency with a project funded
by a building appropriation may allow a contractor to proceed with supplemental work
within the limits of the appropriation before money is encumbered. Under this circumstance,
the agency may requisition funds and allow contractors to expeditiously proceed with a
construction sequence. While the contractor is proceeding, the agency shall immediately
act to encumber the required funds.

institution liquidated by the commissioner as statutory liquidator, if any dividends or other
moneys set apart for the payment of claims remain unpaid, and the places of residence of

benefit of, the county under this subdivision must never exceed the principal and interest
of the bonds issued to finance or refinance a ditch outstanding on April 22, 1933, less money
on hand in the county ditch fund to the credit of a ditch. These liabilities must be reduced
from time to time by the amount of any payments of assessments extended after April 22,
1933, made by the owners of lands assessed before that date for benefits on account of the
ditches.

As to public drainage ditches partly within and partly outside a project the amount paid
from the fund pertaining to the project to or for the benefit of the county must never exceed
a certain percentage of bonds issued to finance and refinance a ditch so outstanding, less
money on hand in the county ditch fund to the credit of a ditch on April 22, 1932. The
percentage must bear the same proportion to the whole amount of the bonds as the original
benefits assessed against these lands within the project bear to the original total benefits
assessed to the entire system for a ditch. This liability must be reduced from time to time

manner specified in this section, the obligation to pay a portion of the principal and interest
of the bonds issued before the approval and acceptance of the project and remaining unpaid
at maturity, of any school district or town in the county and wholly or partly within the
project. The portion must bear the same proportion to the whole of the unpaid principal and
interest as the last net tax capacity, before the acceptance of the project, of lands then
acquired by the state under sections 84A.31 to 84A.42 in the school districts or towns bears
to the total net tax capacity for the same year of the school district or town. This assumption
must be evidenced by a resolution of the county board of the county. A copy of the resolution

thereon. This authority to sell may be exercised from time to time to satisfy any order or
award of the commissioner of labor and industry or any judgment obtained thereon. When
securities are sold the money obtained shall be deposited in the state treasury to the credit
of the commissioner of commerce and awards made against any such self-insurer by the
commissioner of commerce shall be paid to the persons entitled thereto by the commissioner
of management and budget upon deleted text beginwarrants prepareddeleted text endnew text begin payments requestednew text end by the commissioner

of the award, the payments to be enforced in like manner as the award may be enforced.

(b) No association, corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, trust or other business
entity shall provide services in the design, establishment or administration of a group

exempt from licensure, pursuant to section 60A.23, subdivision 8, to do so by the
commissioner of commerce. An applicant for a license shall state in writing the type of
activities it seeks authorization to engage in and the type of services it seeks authorization

issue a license subject to restrictions or limitations, including restrictions or limitations on
the type of services which may be supplied or the activities which may be engaged in. The
license is for a two-year period.

(c) To assure that group self-insurance plans are financially solvent, administered in a
fair and capable fashion, and able to process claims and pay benefits in a prompt, fair and
equitable manner, entities licensed to engage in such business are subject to supervision
and examination by the commissioner of commerce.

(d) To carry out the purposes of this subdivision, the commissioner of commerce may
promulgate administrative rules pursuant to sections 14.001 to 14.69. These rules may:

(1) establish reporting requirements for administrators of group self-insurance plans;

(2) establish standards and guidelines consistent with subdivision 2b to assure the
adequacy of the financing and administration of group self-insurance plans;

(3) establish bonding requirements or other provisions assuring the financial integrity

Notice.

Any county assessor or city assessor having the powers of a

and shall deduct such amount from any state payment to such county or municipality. The

Sec. 62.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 287.08, is amended to read:


287.08 TAX, HOW PAYABLE; RECEIPTS.

(a) The tax imposed by sections 287.01 to 287.12 must be paid to the treasurer of any
county in this state in which the real property or some part is located at or before the time
of filing the mortgage for record. The treasurer shall endorse receipt on the mortgage and
the receipt is conclusive proof that the tax has been paid in the amount stated and authorizes
any county recorder or registrar of titles to record the mortgage. Its form, in substance, shall
be "registration tax hereon of ..................... dollars paid." If the mortgage is exempt from
taxation the endorsement shall, in substance, be "exempt from registration tax." In either
case the receipt must be signed by the treasurer. In case the treasurer is unable to determine
whether a claim of exemption should be allowed, the tax must be paid as in the case of a
taxable mortgage. For documents submitted electronically, the endorsements and tax amount
shall be affixed electronically and no signature by the treasurer will be required. The actual
payment method must be arranged in advance between the submitter and the receiving
county.

(b) The county treasurer may refund in whole or in part any mortgage registry tax
overpayment if a written application by the taxpayer is submitted to the county treasurer
within 3-1/2 years from the date of the overpayment. If the county has not issued a denial
of the application, the taxpayer may bring an action in Tax Court in the county in which
the tax was paid at any time after the expiration of six months from the time that the
application was submitted. A denial of refund may be appealed within 60 days from the
date of the denial by bringing an action in Tax Court in the county in which the tax was
paid. The action is commenced by the serving of a petition for relief on the county treasurer,
and by filing a copy with the court. The county attorney shall defend the action. The county
treasurer shall notify the treasurer of each county that has or would receive a portion of the
tax as paid.

(c) If the county treasurer determines a refund should be paid, or if a refund is ordered
by the court, the county treasurer of each county that actually received a portion of the tax
shall immediately pay a proportionate share of three percent of the refund using any available
county funds. The county treasurer of each county that received, or would have received,
a portion of the tax shall also pay their county's proportionate share of the remaining 97
percent of the court-ordered refund on or before the 20th day of the following month using
solely the mortgage registry tax funds that would be paid to the commissioner of revenue
on that date under section 287.12. If the funds on hand under this procedure are insufficient
to fully fund 97 percent of the court-ordered refund, the county treasurer of the county in
which the action was brought shall file a claim with the commissioner of revenue under
section 16A.48 for the remaining portion of 97 percent of the refund, and shall pay over the
remaining portion upon receipt of a deleted text beginwarrantdeleted text endnew text begin paymentnew text end from the state issued pursuant to the
claim.

(d) When any mortgage covers real property located in more than one county in this
state the total tax must be paid to the treasurer of the county where the mortgage is first
presented for recording, and the payment must be receipted as provided in paragraph (a).
If the principal debt or obligation secured by such a multiple county mortgage exceeds
$10,000,000, the nonstate portion of the tax must be remitted by the county treasurer
receiving the tax to the commissioner of revenue with the state tax due under section 287.12.
The commissioner shall determine the nonstate portion of the tax owed to each county in
the ratio that the estimated market value of the real property covered by the mortgage in
each county bears to the estimated market value of all the real property in this state described
in the mortgage. The commissioner shall pay each county within 60 days of receiving the
tax from the county that collected the tax. In making the division and payment the
commissioner of revenue shall send a statement giving the description of the real property
described in the mortgage and the estimated market value of the part located in each county.
For this purpose, the commissioner of revenue may require the treasurer of any county to
certify to the former the estimated market value of any tract of real property in any mortgage
in the county.

(e) The mortgagor must pay the tax imposed by sections 287.01 to 287.12. The mortgagee
may undertake to collect and remit the tax on behalf of the mortgagor. If the mortgagee
collects money from the mortgagor to remit the tax on behalf of the mortgagor, the mortgagee
has a fiduciary duty to remit the tax on behalf of the mortgagor as to the amount of the tax
collected for that purpose and the mortgagor is relieved of any further obligation to pay the
tax as to the amount collected by the mortgagee for this purpose.
