Sec. 2.

Subdivision 1.

Levy amount.

The state general levy is levied against
commercial-industrial property deleted text beginand seasonal residential recreational property,deleted text end as defined
in this section. The state general levy base amount is $592,000,000 for taxes payable in
2002. For taxes payable in subsequent years, the levy base amount is increased each year
by multiplying the levy base amount for the prior year by the sum of one plus the rate of
increase, if any, in the implicit price deflator for government consumption expenditures
and gross investment for state and local governments prepared by the Bureau of Economic
Analysts of the United States Department of Commerce for the 12-month period ending
March 31 of the year prior to the year the taxes are payable. The tax under this section is
not treated as a local tax rate under section 469.177 and is not the levy of a governmental
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 deleted text beginor seasonal
residential recreational
deleted text end 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 for the same year.

The commissioner may, but need not, make adjustments if the total difference in the tax
levied for the year would be less than $100,000.
