Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 16A.152, is amended by adding a subdivision
to read:


Subd. 2a.

Tax rates adjustment.

(a) The commissioner of revenue must make reductions
to the individual income tax rates and the corporate franchise tax rate in section 290.06,
subdivisions 1 and 2c, by one-tenth of one percent if, on the basis of a November forecast
of general fund revenues and expenditures, the commissioner of management and budget
determines that the following conditions have been met:

(1) the provisions of subdivision 2, paragraph (a), clauses (1) to (4), are satisfied; and

(2) for a forecast occurring in an even-numbered year, revenues exceed expenditures,
excluding any carryforward amounts, at the close of the next biennium and the subsequent
biennium by an amount greater than the revenue reduction resulting from the corresponding
rate cuts defined in this paragraph, as estimated by the commissioner of revenue; or

(3) for a forecast occurring in an odd-numbered year, revenues exceed expenditures,
excluding any carryforward amounts, at the close of the current biennium and the subsequent
biennium by an amount greater than the revenue reduction resulting from the corresponding
rate cuts defined in this paragraph, as estimated by the commissioner of revenue.

(b) Rate reductions under this subdivision resulting from a November forecast in an
even-numbered year are effective for all taxable years beginning with the taxable year that
begins one year after January 1 of the year immediately following the forecast year.

(c) Rate reductions under this subdivision resulting from a November forecast in an
odd-numbered year are effective for all taxable years beginning with the taxable year that
begins on January 1 of the year immediately following the forecast year.

(d) Reductions enacted under this subdivision shall not exceed one percent for each rate.

(e) Rate reductions under this subdivision shall occur before calculating any transfers
to the budget reserve account under subdivision 1b, paragraph (b).

(f) The commissioner of revenue must publish the new tax rates in the State Register at
least 30 days before the rate change going into effect. After the commissioner of revenue
publishes the new tax rates in the State Register, the revisor of statutes must update the tax
rates in section 290.06, subdivisions 1 and 2c, in the next edition of Minnesota Statutes.
