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 or seasonal
residential recreational property reported to the commissioner under section 270C.85,
subdivision 2, clause (4), 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.
