        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  [366.125] [MAY MAKE APPLICANT CERTIFY THAT 
        TAXES ARE PAID.] 
           The town board may require, either as part of the necessary 
        information on an application or as a condition of a grant of 
        approval, an applicant for an amendment, permit, or other 
        approval required under a regulation established pursuant to 
        sections 366.10 to 366.18 to certify that there are no 
        delinquent property taxes, special assessments, penalties, and 
        interest due on the parcel to which the application relates.  
        Property taxes which are being paid under the provisions of a 
        stipulation, order, or confession of judgment, or which are 
        being appealed as provided by law, are not considered delinquent 
        for purposes of this section if all required payments due under 
        the terms of the stipulation, order, confession of judgment, or 
        appeal have been paid. 
           Sec. 2.  [394.235] [MAY MAKE APPLICANT CERTIFY THAT TAXES 
        ARE PAID.] 
           The county board may require, either as part of the 
        necessary information on an application or as a condition of a 
        grant of approval, an applicant for an amendment to an official 
        control established pursuant to sections 394.21 to 394.37, or 
        for a permit or other approval required under an official 
        control established pursuant to those sections to certify that 
        there are no delinquent property taxes, special assessments, 
        penalties, and interest due on the parcel to which the 
        application relates.  Property taxes which are being paid under 
        the provisions of a stipulation, order, or confession of 
        judgment, or which are being appealed as provided by law, are 
        not considered delinquent for purposes of this subdivision if 
        all required payments are due under the terms of the 
        stipulation, order, confession of judgment, or appeal have been 
        paid. 
           Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 462.353, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 5.  [CERTIFY TAXES PAID.] A municipality may require, 
        either as part of the necessary information on an application or 
        as a condition of a grant of approval, an applicant for an 
        amendment to an official control established pursuant to 
        sections 462.351 to 462.364, or for a permit or other approval 
        required under an official control established pursuant to those 
        sections to certify that there are no delinquent property taxes, 
        special assessments, penalties, interest, and municipal utility 
        fees due on the parcel to which the application relates.  
        Property taxes which are being paid under the provisions of a 
        stipulation, order, or confession of judgment, or which are 
        being appealed as provided by law, are not considered delinquent 
        for purposes of this subdivision if all required payments are 
        due under the terms of the stipulation, order, confession of 
        judgment, or appeal have been paid.
