BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 276.04, subdivision 2, is amended to read:


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 new text begina soil and water conservation district and new text endthe 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 and 273.1387;

(6) any credits received under sections 273.119; 273.1234 or 273.1235; 273.135;
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.
