Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 126C.40, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

To lease building or land.

(a) When an independent or a special school
district or a group of independent or special school districts finds it economically
advantageous to rent or lease a building or land for any instructional purposes or for school
storage or furniture repair, and it determines that the operating capital revenue authorized
under section 126C.10, subdivision 13, is insufficient for this purpose, it may apply to the
commissioner for permission to make an additional capital expenditure levy for this purpose.
An application for permission to levy under this subdivision must contain financial
justification for the proposed levy, the terms and conditions of the proposed lease, and a
description of the space to be leased and its proposed use.

(b) The criteria for approval of applications to levy under this subdivision must include:
the reasonableness of the price, the appropriateness of the space to the proposed activity,
the feasibility of transporting pupils to the leased building or land, conformity of the lease
to the laws and rules of the state of Minnesota, and the appropriateness of the proposed
lease to the space needs and the financial condition of the district. The commissioner must
not authorize a levy under this subdivision in an amount greater than the cost to the district
of renting or leasing a building or land for approved purposes. The proceeds of this levy
must not be used for custodial or other maintenance services. A district may not levy under
this subdivision for the purpose of leasing or renting a district-owned building or site to
itself.

(c) For agreements finalized after July 1, 1997, a district may not levy under this
subdivision for the purpose of leasing: (1) a newly constructed building used primarily for
regular kindergarten, elementary, or secondary instruction; or (2) a newly constructed
building addition or additions used primarily for regular kindergarten, elementary, or
secondary instruction that contains more than 20 percent of the square footage of the
previously existing building.

(d) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), a district may levy under this subdivision for the
purpose of leasing or renting a district-owned building or site to itself only if the amount is
needed by the district to make payments required by a lease purchase agreement, installment
purchase agreement, or other deferred payments agreement authorized by law, and the levy
meets the requirements of paragraph (c). A levy authorized for a district by the commissioner
under this paragraph may be in the amount needed by the district to make payments required
by a lease purchase agreement, installment purchase agreement, or other deferred payments
agreement authorized by law, provided that any agreement include a provision giving the
school districts the right to terminate the agreement annually without penalty.

(e) The total levy under this subdivision for a district for any year must not exceed $212
times the adjusted pupil units for the fiscal year to which the levy is attributable.

(f) For agreements for which a review and comment have been submitted to the
Department of Education after April 1, 1998, the term "instructional purpose" as used in
this subdivision excludes expenditures on stadiums.

(g) The commissioner of education may authorize a school district to exceed the limit
in paragraph (e) if the school district petitions the commissioner for approval. The
commissioner shall grant approval to a school district to exceed the limit in paragraph (e)
for not more than five years if the district meets the following criteria:

(1) the school district has been experiencing pupil enrollment growth in the preceding
five years;

(2) the purpose of the increased levy is in the long-term public interest;

(3) the purpose of the increased levy promotes colocation of government services; and

(4) the purpose of the increased levy is in the long-term interest of the district by avoiding
over construction of school facilities.

(h) A school district that is a member of an intermediate school districtnew text begin or other
cooperative unit under section 123A.24, subdivision 2, or a joint powers district under
section 471.59
new text end may include in its authority under this section the costs associated with leases

the adjusted pupil units of the member districts. This authority is in addition to any other
authority authorized under this section.new text begin The intermediate school district, other cooperative
unit, or joint powers district may specify which member districts will levy for lease costs
under this paragraph.
new text end

(i) In addition to the allowable capital levies in paragraph (a), for taxes payable in 2012
to 2023, a district that is a member of the "Technology and Information Education Systems"
data processing joint board, that finds it economically advantageous to enter into a lease
agreement to finance improvements to a building and land for a group of school districts
or special school districts for staff development purposes, may levy for its portion of lease
costs attributed to the district within the total levy limit in paragraph (e). The total levy
authority under this paragraph shall not exceed $632,000.

(j) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), a district may levy under this subdivision for the
purpose of leasing administrative space if the district can demonstrate to the satisfaction of
the commissioner that the lease cost for the administrative space is no greater than the lease
cost for instructional space that the district would otherwise lease. The commissioner must
deny this levy authority unless the district passes a resolution stating its intent to lease
instructional space under this section if the commissioner does not grant authority under
this paragraph. The resolution must also certify that the lease cost for administrative space
under this paragraph is no greater than the lease cost for the district's proposed instructional
lease.

new text begin (k) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), a district may levy under this subdivision for the
district's proportionate share of deferred maintenance expenditures for a district-owned
building or site leased to a cooperative unit under section 123A.24, subdivision 2, or a joint
powers district under section 471.59 for any instructional purposes or for school storage.

Subd. 23.

Class 2.

(a) An agricultural homestead consists of class 2a agricultural land
that is homesteaded, along with any class 2b rural vacant land that is contiguous to the class
2a land under the same ownership. The market value of the house and garage and immediately
surrounding one acre of land has the same classification rates as class 1a or 1b property
under subdivision 22. The value of the remaining land including improvements up to the
first tier valuation limit of agricultural homestead property has a classification rate of 0.5
percent of market value. The remaining property over the first tier has a classification rate
of one percent of market value. For purposes of this subdivision, the "first tier valuation
limit of agricultural homestead property" and "first tier" means the limit certified under
section 273.11, subdivision 23.

(b) Class 2a agricultural land consists of parcels of property, or portions thereof, that
are agricultural land and buildings. Class 2a property has a classification rate of one percent
of market value, unless it is part of an agricultural homestead under paragraph (a). Class 2a
property must also include any property that would otherwise be classified as 2b, but is
interspersed with class 2a property, including but not limited to sloughs, wooded wind
shelters, acreage abutting ditches, ravines, rock piles, land subject to a setback requirement,
and other similar land that is impractical for the assessor to value separately from the rest
of the property or that is unlikely to be able to be sold separately from the rest of the property.

An assessor may classify the part of a parcel described in this subdivision that is used
for agricultural purposes as class 2a and the remainder in the class appropriate to its use.

(c) Class 2b rural vacant land consists of parcels of property, or portions thereof, that
are unplatted real estate, rural in character and not used for agricultural purposes, including
land used for growing trees for timber, lumber, and wood and wood products, that is not
improved with a structure. The presence of a minor, ancillary nonresidential structure as
defined by the commissioner of revenue does not disqualify the property from classification
under this paragraph. Any parcel of 20 acres or more improved with a structure that is not
a minor, ancillary nonresidential structure must be split-classified, and ten acres must be
assigned to the split parcel containing the structure. If a parcel of 20 acres or more is enrolled
in the sustainable forest management incentive program under chapter 290C, the number
of acres assigned to the split parcel improved with a structure that is not a minor, ancillary
nonresidential structure must equal three acres or the number of acres excluded from the
sustainable forest incentive act covenant due to the structure, whichever is greater. Class
2b property has a classification rate of one percent of market value unless it is part of an
agricultural homestead under paragraph (a), or qualifies as class 2c under paragraph (d).

(d) Class 2c managed forest land consists of no less than 20 and no more than 1,920
acres statewide per taxpayer that is being managed under a forest management plan that
meets the requirements of chapter 290C, but is not enrolled in the sustainable forest resource
management incentive program. It has a classification rate of .65 percent, provided that the
owner of the property must apply to the assessor in order for the property to initially qualify
for the reduced rate and provide the information required by the assessor to verify that the
property qualifies for the reduced rate. If the assessor receives the application and information
before May 1 in an assessment year, the property qualifies beginning with that assessment
year. If the assessor receives the application and information after April 30 in an assessment
year, the property may not qualify until the next assessment year. The commissioner of
natural resources must concur that the land is qualified. The commissioner of natural
resources shall annually provide county assessors verification information on a timely basis.
The presence of a minor, ancillary nonresidential structure as defined by the commissioner
of revenue does not disqualify the property from classification under this paragraph.

(e) Agricultural land as used in this section means:

(1) contiguous acreage of ten acres or more, used during the preceding year for
agricultural purposes; or

(2) contiguous acreage used during the preceding year for an intensive livestock or
poultry confinement operation, provided that land used only for pasturing or grazing does
not qualify under this clause.

"Agricultural purposes" as used in this section means the raising, cultivation, drying, or
storage of agricultural products for sale, or the storage of machinery or equipment used in
support of agricultural production by the same farm entity. For a property to be classified
as agricultural based only on the drying or storage of agricultural products, the products
being dried or stored must have been produced by the same farm entity as the entity operating
the drying or storage facility. "Agricultural purposes" also includes (i) enrollment in a local
conservation program or the Reinvest in Minnesota program under sections 103F.501 to
103F.535 or the federal Conservation Reserve Program as contained in Public Law 99-198
or a similar state or federal conservation program if the property was classified as agricultural
(A) under this subdivision for taxes payable in 2003 because of its enrollment in a qualifying
program and the land remains enrolled or (B) in the year prior to its enrollment, or (ii) use
of land, not to exceed three acres, to provide environmental benefits such as buffer strips,
old growth forest restoration or retention, or retention ponds to prevent soil erosion. For
purposes of this section, a "local conservation program" means a program administered by
a town, statutory or home rule charter city, or county, including a watershed district, water
management organization, or soil and water conservation district, in which landowners
voluntarily enroll land and receive incentive payments equal to at least $50 per acre in
exchange for use or other restrictions placed on the land. In order for property to qualify
under the local conservation program provision, a taxpayer must apply to the assessor by
February 1 of the assessment year and must submit the information required by the assessor,
including but not limited to a copy of the program requirements, the specific agreement
between the land owner and the local agency, if applicable, and a map of the conservation
area. Agricultural classification shall not be based upon the market value of any residential
structures on the parcel or contiguous parcels under the same ownership.

"Contiguous acreage," for purposes of this paragraph, means all of, or a contiguous
portion of, a tax parcel as described in section 272.193, or all of, or a contiguous portion
of, a set of contiguous tax parcels under that section that are owned by the same person.

(f) Agricultural land under this section also includes:

(1) contiguous acreage that is less than ten acres in size and exclusively used in the
preceding year for raising or cultivating agricultural products; or

(2) contiguous acreage that contains a residence and is less than 11 acres in size, if the
contiguous acreage exclusive of the house, garage, and surrounding one acre of land was
used in the preceding year for one or more of the following three uses:

(i) for an intensive grain drying or storage operation, or for intensive machinery or
equipment storage activities used to support agricultural activities on other parcels of property
operated by the same farming entity;

(ii) as a nursery, provided that only those acres used intensively to produce nursery stock
are considered agricultural land; or

(iii) for intensive market farming; for purposes of this paragraph, "market farming"
means the cultivation of one or more fruits or vegetables or production of animal or other
agricultural products for sale to local markets by the farmer or an organization with which
the farmer is affiliated.

"Contiguous acreage," for purposes of this paragraph, means all of a tax parcel as
described in section 272.193, or all of a set of contiguous tax parcels under that section that
are owned by the same person.

(g) Land shall be classified as agricultural even if all or a portion of the agricultural use
of that property is the leasing to, or use by another person for agricultural purposes.

Classification under this subdivision is not determinative for qualifying under section
273.111.

(h) The property classification under this section supersedes, for property tax purposes
only, any locally administered agricultural policies or land use restrictions that define
minimum or maximum farm acreage.

(i) The term "agricultural products" as used in this subdivision includes production for
sale of:

(1) livestockdeleted text begin,deleted text endnew text begin;new text end dairy animalsdeleted text begin,deleted text endnew text begin;new text end dairy productsdeleted text begin,deleted text endnew text begin;new text end poultry and poultry productsdeleted text begin,deleted text endnew text begin;new text end fur-bearing

(2) aquacultural products for sale and consumption, as defined under section 17.47, if
the aquaculture occurs on land zoned for agricultural use;

(3) the commercial boarding of horses, which may include related horse training and
riding instruction, if the boarding is done on property that is also used for raising pasture
to graze horses or raising or cultivating other agricultural products as defined in clause (1);

(4) property which is owned and operated by nonprofit organizations used for equestrian
activities, excluding racing;

(5) game birds and waterfowl bred and raised (i) on a game farm licensed under section
97A.105, provided that the annual licensing report to the Department of Natural Resources,
which must be submitted annually by March 30 to the assessor, indicates that at least 500
birds were raised or used for breeding stock on the property during the preceding year and
that the owner provides a copy of the owner's most recent schedule F; or (ii) for use on a
shooting preserve licensed under section 97A.115;

(6) insects primarily bred to be used as food for animals;

(7) trees, grown for sale as a crop, including short rotation woody crops, and not sold
for timber, lumber, wood, or wood products; and

(8) maple syrup taken from trees grown by a person licensed by the Minnesota
Department of Agriculture under chapter 28A as a food processor.

(j) If a parcel used for agricultural purposes is also used for commercial or industrial
purposes, including but not limited to:

(1) wholesale and retail sales;

(2) processing of raw agricultural products or other goods;

(3) warehousing or storage of processed goods; and

(4) office facilities for the support of the activities enumerated in clauses (1), (2), and
(3), the assessor shall classify the part of the parcel used for agricultural purposes as class
1b, 2a, or 2b, whichever is appropriate, and the remainder in the class appropriate to its use.
The grading, sorting, and packaging of raw agricultural products for first sale is considered
an agricultural purpose. A greenhouse or other building where horticultural or nursery
products are grown that is also used for the conduct of retail sales must be classified as
agricultural if it is primarily used for the growing of horticultural or nursery products from
seed, cuttings, or roots and occasionally as a showroom for the retail sale of those products.
Use of a greenhouse or building only for the display of already grown horticultural or nursery
products does not qualify as an agricultural purpose.

(k) The assessor shall determine and list separately on the records the market value of
the homestead dwelling and the one acre of land on which that dwelling is located. If any
farm buildings or structures are located on this homesteaded acre of land, their market value
shall not be included in this separate determination.

(l) Class 2d airport landing area consists of a landing area or public access area of a
privately owned public use airport. It has a classification rate of one percent of market value.
To qualify for classification under this paragraph, a privately owned public use airport must
be licensed as a public airport under section 360.018. For purposes of this paragraph, "landing
area" means that part of a privately owned public use airport properly cleared, regularly
maintained, and made available to the public for use by aircraft and includes runways,
taxiways, aprons, and sites upon which are situated landing or navigational aids. A landing
area also includes land underlying both the primary surface and the approach surfaces that
comply with all of the following:

(i) the land is properly cleared and regularly maintained for the primary purposes of the
landing, taking off, and taxiing of aircraft; but that portion of the land that contains facilities
for servicing, repair, or maintenance of aircraft is not included as a landing area;

(ii) the land is part of the airport property; and

(iii) the land is not used for commercial or residential purposes.

The land contained in a landing area under this paragraph must be described and certified
by the commissioner of transportation. The certification is effective until it is modified, or
until the airport or landing area no longer meets the requirements of this paragraph. For
purposes of this paragraph, "public access area" means property used as an aircraft parking
ramp, apron, or storage hangar, or an arrival and departure building in connection with the
airport.

(m) Class 2e consists of land with a commercial aggregate deposit that is not actively
being mined and is not otherwise classified as class 2a or 2b, provided that the land is not
located in a county that has elected to opt-out of the aggregate preservation program as
provided in section 273.1115, subdivision 6. It has a classification rate of one percent of
market value. To qualify for classification under this paragraph, the property must be at
least ten contiguous acres in size and the owner of the property must record with the county
recorder of the county in which the property is located an affidavit containing:

(1) a legal description of the property;

(2) a disclosure that the property contains a commercial aggregate deposit that is not
actively being mined but is present on the entire parcel enrolled;

(3) documentation that the conditional use under the county or local zoning ordinance
of this property is for mining; and

(4) documentation that a permit has been issued by the local unit of government or the
mining activity is allowed under local ordinance. The disclosure must include a statement
from a registered professional geologist, engineer, or soil scientist delineating the deposit
and certifying that it is a commercial aggregate deposit.

For purposes of this section and section 273.1115, "commercial aggregate deposit"
means a deposit that will yield crushed stone or sand and gravel that is suitable for use as
a construction aggregate; and "actively mined" means the removal of top soil and overburden
in preparation for excavation or excavation of a commercial deposit.

(n) When any portion of the property under this subdivision or subdivision 22 begins to
be actively mined, the owner must file a supplemental affidavit within 60 days from the
day any aggregate is removed stating the number of acres of the property that is actively
being mined. The acres actively being mined must be (1) valued and classified under
subdivision 24 in the next subsequent assessment year, and (2) removed from the aggregate
resource preservation property tax program under section 273.1115, if the land was enrolled
in that program. Copies of the original affidavit and all supplemental affidavits must be
filed with the county assessor, the local zoning administrator, and the Department of Natural
Resources, Division of Land and Minerals. A supplemental affidavit must be filed each
time a subsequent portion of the property is actively mined, provided that the minimum
acreage change is five acres, even if the actual mining activity constitutes less than five
acres.

(o) The definitions prescribed by the commissioner under paragraphs (c) and (d) are not
rules and are exempt from the rulemaking provisions of chapter 14, and the provisions in
section 14.386 concerning exempt rules do not apply.

Sec. 11.

Minnesota Statutes 2021 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 25, is amended
to read:


Subd. 25.

Class 4.

(a) Class 4a is residential real estate containing four or more units
and used or held for use by the owner or by the tenants or lessees of the owner as a residence
for rental periods of 30 days or more, excluding property qualifying for class 4d. Class 4a
also includes hospitals licensed under sections 144.50 to 144.56, other than hospitals exempt
under section 272.02, and contiguous property used for hospital purposes, without regard
to whether the property has been platted or subdivided. The market value of class 4a property
has a classification rate of 1.25 percent.

(b) Class 4b includes:

(1) residential real estate containing less than four units, including property rented as a
short-term rental property for more than 14 days in the preceding year, that does not qualify
as class 4bb, other than seasonal residential recreational property;

(2) manufactured homes not classified under any other provision;

(3) a dwelling, garage, and surrounding one acre of property on a nonhomestead farm
classified under subdivision 23, paragraph (b) containing two or three units; and

(4) unimproved property that is classified residential as determined under subdivision
33.

For the purposes of this paragraph, "short-term rental property" means nonhomestead
residential real estate rented for periods of less than 30 consecutive days.

The market value of class 4b property has a classification rate of 1.25 percent.

(c) Class 4bb includes:

(1) nonhomestead residential real estate containing one unit, other than seasonal
residential recreational property;

(2) a single family dwelling, garage, and surrounding one acre of property on a
nonhomestead farm classified under subdivision 23, paragraph (b); and

(3) a condominium-type storage unit having an individual property identification number
that is not used for a commercial purpose.

Class 4bb property has the same classification rates as class 1a property under subdivision
22.

Property that has been classified as seasonal residential recreational property at any time
during which it has been owned by the current owner or spouse of the current owner does
not qualify for class 4bb.

(d) Class 4c property includes:

(1) except as provided in subdivision 22, paragraph (c), real and personal property
devoted to commercial temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes,
for not more than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment. For purposes of
this clause, property is devoted to a commercial purpose on a specific day if any portion of
the property is used for residential occupancy, and a fee is charged for residential occupancy.
Class 4c property under this clause must contain three or more rental units. A "rental unit"
is defined as a cabin, condominium, townhouse, sleeping room, or individual camping site
equipped with water and electrical hookups for recreational vehicles. A camping pad offered
for rent by a property that otherwise qualifies for class 4c under this clause is also class 4c
under this clause regardless of the term of the rental agreement, as long as the use of the
camping pad does not exceed 250 days. In order for a property to be classified under this
clause, either (i) the business located on the property must provide recreational activities,
at least 40 percent of the annual gross lodging receipts related to the property must be from
business conducted during 90 consecutive days, and either (A) at least 60 percent of all paid
bookings by lodging guests during the year must be for periods of at least two consecutive
nights; or (B) at least 20 percent of the annual gross receipts must be from charges for
providing recreational activities, or (ii) the business must contain 20 or fewer rental units,
and must be located in a township or a city with a population of 2,500 or less located outside
the metropolitan area, as defined under section 473.121, subdivision 2, that contains a portion
of a state trail administered by the Department of Natural Resources. For purposes of item
(i)(A), a paid booking of five or more nights shall be counted as two bookings. Class 4c
property also includes commercial use real property used exclusively for recreational
purposes in conjunction with other class 4c property classified under this clause and devoted
to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreational purposes, up to a total of
two acres, provided the property is not devoted to commercial recreational use for more
than 250 days in the year preceding the year of assessment and is located within two miles
of the class 4c property with which it is used. In order for a property to qualify for
classification under this clause, the owner must submit a declaration to the assessor
designating the cabins or units occupied for 250 days or less in the year preceding the year
of assessment by January 15 of the assessment year. Those cabins or units and a proportionate
share of the land on which they are located must be designated class 4c under this clause
as otherwise provided. The remainder of the cabins or units and a proportionate share of
the land on which they are located will be designated as class 3a. The owner of property
desiring designation as class 4c property under this clause must provide guest registers or
other records demonstrating that the units for which class 4c designation is sought were not
occupied for more than 250 days in the year preceding the assessment if so requested. The
portion of a property operated as a (1) restaurant, (2) bar, (3) gift shop, (4) conference center
or meeting room, and (5) other nonresidential facility operated on a commercial basis not
directly related to temporary and seasonal residential occupancy for recreation purposes
does not qualify for class 4c. For the purposes of this paragraph, "recreational activities"
means renting ice fishing houses, boats and motors, snowmobiles, downhill or cross-country
ski equipment; providing marina services, launch services, or guide services; or selling bait
and fishing tackle;

(2) qualified property used as a golf course if:

(i) it is open to the public on a daily fee basis. It may charge membership fees or dues,
but a membership fee may not be required in order to use the property for golfing, and its
green fees for golfing must be comparable to green fees typically charged by municipal
courses; and

(ii) it meets the requirements of section 273.112, subdivision 3, paragraph (d).

A structure used as a clubhouse, restaurant, or place of refreshment in conjunction with
the golf course is classified as class 3a property;

(3) real property up to a maximum of three acres of land owned and used by a nonprofit
community service oriented organization and not used for residential purposes on either a
temporary or permanent basis, provided that:

(i) the property is not used for a revenue-producing activity for more than six days in
the calendar year preceding the year of assessment; or

(ii) the organization makes annual charitable contributions and donations at least equal
to the property's previous year's property taxes and the property is allowed to be used for
public and community meetings or events for no charge, as appropriate to the size of the
facility.

For purposes of this clause:

(A) "charitable contributions and donations" has the same meaning as lawful gambling
purposes under section 349.12, subdivision 25, excluding those purposes relating to the
payment of taxes, assessments, fees, auditing costs, and utility payments;

(B) "property taxes" excludes the state general tax;

(C) a "nonprofit community service oriented organization" means any corporation,
society, association, foundation, or institution organized and operated exclusively for

portion of the property that is used as an on-sale intoxicating liquor or 3.2 percent malt
liquor establishment licensed under chapter 340A, a restaurant open to the public, bowling
alley, a retail store, gambling conducted by organizations licensed under chapter 349, an
insurance business, or office or other space leased or rented to a lessee who conducts a
for-profit enterprise on the premises.

Any portion of the property not qualifying under either item (i) or (ii) is class 3a. The
use of the property for social events open exclusively to members and their guests for periods
of less than 24 hours, when an admission is not charged nor any revenues are received by
the organization shall not be considered a revenue-producing activity.

The organization shall maintain records of its charitable contributions and donations
and of public meetings and events held on the property and make them available upon
request any time to the assessor to ensure eligibility. An organization meeting the requirement
under item (ii) must file an application by May 1 with the assessor for eligibility for the
current year's assessment. The commissioner shall prescribe a uniform application form
and instructions;

(4) postsecondary student housing of not more than one acre of land that is owned by a
nonprofit corporation organized under chapter 317A and is used exclusively by a student
cooperative, sorority, or fraternity for on-campus housing or housing located within two

Airports Commission, or group thereof; and

(ii) the land lease, or any ordinance or signed agreement restricting the use of the leased
premise, prohibits commercial activity performed at the hangar.

If a hangar classified under this clause is sold after June 30, 2000, a bill of sale must be
filed by the new owner with the assessor of the county where the property is located within
60 days of the sale;

(8) a privately owned noncommercial aircraft storage hangar not exempt under section
272.01, subdivision 2, and the land on which it is located, provided that:

(i) the land abuts a public airport; and

(ii) the owner of the aircraft storage hangar provides the assessor with a signed agreement
restricting the use of the premises, prohibiting commercial use or activity performed at the
hangar; and

(9) residential real estate, a portion of which is used by the owner for homestead purposes,
and that is also a place of lodging, if all of the following criteria are met:

(i) rooms are provided for rent to transient guests that generally stay for periods of 14
or fewer days;

(ii) meals are provided to persons who rent rooms, the cost of which is incorporated in
the basic room rate;

(iii) meals are not provided to the general public except for special events on fewer than
seven days in the calendar year preceding the year of the assessment; and

(iv) the owner is the operator of the property.

The market value subject to the 4c classification under this clause is limited to five rental

Minnesota Statutes 2021 Supplement, section 273.13, subdivision 34, is amended
to read:


Subd. 34.

Homestead of veteran with a disability or family caregiver.

(a) All or a
portion of the market value of property owned by a veteran and serving as the veteran's
homestead under this section is excluded in determining the property's taxable market value
if the veteran has a service-connected disability of 70 percent or more as certified by the

Sec. 5.

Minnesota Statutes 2021 Supplement, section 469.1763, subdivision 2, is amended
to read:


Subd. 2.

Expenditures outside district.

(a) For each tax increment financing district,
an amount equal to at least 75 percent of the total revenue derived from tax increments paid
by properties in the district must be expended on activities in the district or to pay bonds,
to the extent that the proceeds of the bonds were used to finance activities in the district or
to pay, or secure payment of, debt service on credit enhanced bonds. For districts, other
than redevelopment districts for which the request for certification was made after June 30,
1995, the in-district percentage for purposes of the preceding sentence is 80 percent. Not
more than 25 percent of the total revenue derived from tax increments paid by properties
in the district may be expended, through a development fund or otherwise, on activities
outside of the district but within the defined geographic area of the project except to pay,
or secure payment of, debt service on credit enhanced bonds. For districts, other than
redevelopment districts for which the request for certification was made after June 30, 1995,
the pooling percentage for purposes of the preceding sentence is 20 percent. The revenues
derived from tax increments paid by properties in the district that are expended on costs
under section 469.176, subdivision 4h, paragraph (b), may be deducted first before calculating
the percentages that must be expended within and without the district.

(b) In the case of a housing district, a housing project, as defined in section 469.174,
subdivision 11
, is an activity in the district.

(c) All administrative expenses arenew text begin considered to be expendituresnew text end for activities outside
of the district, except that if the only expenses for activities outside of the district under this
subdivision are for the purposes described in paragraph (d), administrative expenses will
be considered as expenditures for activities in the district.

(d) The authority may elect, in the tax increment financing plan for the district, to increase
by up to ten percentage points the permitted amount of expenditures for activities located
outside the geographic area of the district under paragraph (a). As permitted by section
469.176, subdivision 4k, the expenditures, including the permitted expenditures under
paragraph (a), need not be made within the geographic area of the project. Expenditures
that meet the requirements of this paragraph are legally permitted expenditures of the district,
notwithstanding section 469.176, subdivisions 4b, 4c, and 4j. To qualify for the increase
under this paragraph, the expenditures must:

(1) be used exclusively to assist housing that meets the requirement for a qualified
low-income building, as that term is used in section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code; and

(2) not exceed the qualified basis of the housing, as defined under section 42(c) of the
Internal Revenue Code, less the amount of any credit allowed under section 42 of the Internal
Revenue Code; and

(3) be used to:

(i) acquire and prepare the site of the housing;

(ii) acquire, construct, or rehabilitate the housing; or

(iii) make public improvements directly related to the housing; or

(4) be used to develop housing:

(i) if the market value of the housing does not exceed the lesser of:

(A) 150 percent of the average market value of single-family homes in that municipality;
or

(B) $200,000 for municipalities located in the metropolitan area, as defined in section
473.121, or $125,000 for all other municipalities; and

(ii) if the expenditures are used to pay the cost of site acquisition, relocation, demolition
of existing structures, site preparation, and pollution abatement on one or more parcels, if
the parcel contains a residence containing one to four family dwelling units that has been
vacant for six or more months and is in foreclosure as defined in section 325N.10, subdivision
7
, but without regard to whether the residence is the owner's principal residence, and only
after the redemption period has expired; or

(5) to assist owner-occupied housing that meets the requirements of section 469.1761,
subdivision 2.

(e) The authority under paragraph (d), clause (4), expires on December 31, 2016.
Increments may continue to be expended under this authority after that date, if they are used
to pay bonds or binding contracts that would qualify under subdivision 3, paragraph (a), if
December 31, 2016, is considered to be the last date of the five-year period after certification
under that provision.

new text begin (f) For purposes of determining whether the minimum percentage of expenditures for
activities in the district and maximum percentages of expenditures allowed on activities
outside the district have been met under this subdivision, any amounts returned to the county
auditor as excess increment, as returned increment under subdivision 4, paragraph (g), or
as remedies under section 469.1771, subdivision 2, shall first be subtracted from the total
revenues derived from tax increments paid by properties in the district. Any other amounts
returned to the county auditor for purposes other than a remedy under section 469.1771,
subdivision 3, are considered to be expenditures for activities in the district.

Sec. 8.

Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 469.1763, subdivision 6, is amended to read:


Subd. 6.

Pooling permitted for deficits.

(a) This subdivision applies only to districts
for which the request for certification was made before August 1, 2001, and without regard
to whether the request for certification was made prior to August 1, 1979.

(b) The municipality for the district may transfer available increments from another tax
increment financing district located in the municipality, if the transfer is necessary to
eliminate a deficit in the district to which the increments are transferred. The municipality
may transfer increments as provided by this subdivision without regard to whether the
transfer or expenditure is authorized by the tax increment financing plan for the district
from which the transfer is made. A deficit in the district for purposes of this subdivision
means the lesser of the following two amounts:

(1)deleted text begin(i)deleted text end the amount due during the calendar year to pay preexisting obligations of the
district; minusnew text begin the sum of
new text end

deleted text begin (ii)deleted text endnew text begin (i)new text end the total increments collected or to be collected from properties located within
the district that are available for the calendar year including amounts collected in prior years
that are currently available; plus

deleted text begin (iii)deleted text endnew text begin (ii)new text end total increments from properties located in other districts in the municipality
including amounts collected in prior years that are available to be used to meet the district's
obligations under this section, excluding this subdivision, or other provisions of law; or

(2) the reduction in increments collected from properties located in the district for the
calendar year as a result of the changes in classification rates in Laws 1997, chapter 231,
article 1; Laws 1998, chapter 389, article 2; and Laws 1999, chapter 243, and Laws 2001,
First Special Session chapter 5, or the elimination of the general education tax levy under
Laws 2001, First Special Session chapter 5.

The authority may compute the deficit amount under clause (1) only (without regard to
the limit under clause (2)) if the authority makes an irrevocable commitment, by resolution,
to use increments from the district to which increments are to be transferred and any
transferred increments are only used to pay preexisting obligations and administrative
expenses for the district that are required to be paid under section 469.176, subdivision 4h,
paragraph (a).

(c) A preexisting obligation means:

(1) bonds issued and sold before August 1, 2001, or bonds issued pursuant to a binding
contract requiring the issuance of bonds entered into before July 1, 2001, and bonds issued
to refund such bonds or to reimburse expenditures made in conjunction with a signed
contractual agreement entered into before August 1, 2001, to the extent that the bonds are
secured by a pledge of increments from the tax increment financing district; and

(2) binding contracts entered into before August 1, 2001, to the extent that the contracts
require payments secured by a pledge of increments from the tax increment financing district.

(d) The municipality may require a development authority, other than a seaway port
authority, to transfer available increments including amounts collected in prior years that
are currently available for any of its tax increment financing districts in the municipality to
make up an insufficiency in another district in the municipality, regardless of whether the
district was established by the development authority or another development authority.
This authority applies notwithstanding any law to the contrary, but applies only to a
development authority that:

(1) was established by the municipality; or

(2) the governing body of which is appointed, in whole or part, by the municipality or
an officer of the municipality or which consists, in whole or part, of members of the
governing body of the municipality. The municipality may use this authority only after it
has first used all available increments of the receiving development authority to eliminate
the insufficiency and exercised any permitted action under section 469.1792, subdivision
3
, for preexisting districts of the receiving development authority to eliminate the
insufficiency.

(e) The authority under this subdivision to spend tax increments outside of the area of
the district from which the tax increments were collected:

(1) is an exception to the restrictions under section 469.176, subdivisions 4b, 4c, 4d, 4e,
4i, and 4j
; the expenditure limits under section 469.176, subdivision 1c; and the other
provisions of this section; and the percentage restrictions under subdivision 2 must be
calculated after deducting increments spent under this subdivision from the total increments
for the district; and

(2) applies notwithstanding the provisions of the Tax Increment Financing Act in effect
for districts for which the request for certification was made before June 30, 1982, or any
other law to the contrary.

(f) If a preexisting obligation requires the development authority to pay an amount that
is limited to the increment from the district or a specific development within the district and
if the obligation requires paying a higher amount to the extent that increments are available,
the municipality may determine that the amount due under the preexisting obligation equals
the higher amount and may authorize the transfer of increments under this subdivision to
pay up to the higher amount. The existence of a guarantee of obligations by the individual
or entity that would receive the payment under this paragraph is disregarded in the
determination of eligibility to pool under this subdivision. The authority to transfer increments
under this paragraph may only be used to the extent that the payment of all other preexisting
obligations in the municipality due during the calendar year have been satisfied.

(g) For transfers of increments made in calendar year 2005 and later, the reduction in
increments as a result of the elimination of the general education tax levy for purposes of
paragraph (b), clause (2), for a taxes payable year equals the general education tax rate for
the school district under Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 273.1382, subdivision 1, for taxes
payable in 2001, multiplied by the captured tax capacity of the district for the current taxes
payable year.

this chapter
deleted text endnew text begin renter's credit under section 290.0693new text end.

Within 90 days of the notification, the county assessor shall investigate to determine if
the homestead classification was improperly claimed. If the property owner does not qualify,
the county assessor shall notify the county auditor who will determine the amount of
homestead benefits that has been improperly allowed. For the purpose of this section,
"homestead benefits" has the meaning given in section 273.124, subdivision 13b. The county
auditor shall send a notice to persons who owned the affected property at the time the
homestead application related to the improper homestead was filed, demanding
reimbursement of the homestead benefits plus a penalty equal to 100 percent of the homestead
benefits. The person notified may appeal the county's determination with the Minnesota
Tax Court within 60 days of the date of the notice from the county as provided in section
273.124, subdivision 13b.

If the amount of homestead benefits and penalty is not paid within 60 days, and if no
appeal has been filed, the county auditor shall certify the amount of taxes and penalty to
the county treasurer. The county treasurer will add interest to the unpaid homestead benefits
and penalty amounts at the rate provided for delinquent personal property taxes for the
period beginning 60 days after demand for payment was made until payment. If the person
notified is the current owner of the property, the treasurer may add the total amount of
benefits, penalty, interest, and costs to the real estate taxes otherwise payable on the property
in the following year. If the person notified is not the current owner of the property, the
treasurer may collect the amounts due under the Revenue Recapture Act in chapter 270A,
or use any of the powers granted in sections 277.20 and 277.21 without exclusion, to enforce
payment of the benefits, penalty, interest, and costs, as if those amounts were delinquent
tax obligations of the person who owned the property at the time the application related to
the improperly allowed homestead was filed. The treasurer may relieve a prior owner of
personal liability for the benefits, penalty, interest, and costs, and instead extend those
amounts on the tax lists against the property for taxes payable in the following year to the
extent that the current owner agrees in writing.

Any amount of homestead benefits recovered by the county from the property owner
shall be distributed to the county, city or town, and school district where the property is
located in the same proportion that each taxing district's levy was to the total of the three
taxing districts' levy for the current year. Any amount recovered attributable to taconite
homestead credit shall be transmitted to the St. Louis County auditor to be deposited in the
taconite property tax relief account. Any amount recovered that is attributable to supplemental
homestead credit is to be transmitted to the commissioner of revenue for deposit in the
general fund of the state treasury. The total amount of penalty collected must be deposited
in the county general fund.
