Subpart 1.

Scope.

The terms used in this chapter are defined in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 297E, unless separately defined under this part.

Subp. 2.

Accrual basis.

"Accrual basis" means the method of accounting in which revenue is recognized in the period earned and expense is recognized in the period incurred.

Subp. 3.

Audit.

"Audit" means the examination of accounting records with the expression of an opinion on whether the financial statements of the organization present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position, results of operations, and its cash flows, in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting.

Subp. 4.

Certified public accountant; CPA.

"Certified public accountant" or "CPA" means a person who is licensed as a certified public accountant in accordance with Minnesota Statutes, chapter 326A.

Subp. 5.

Cash basis.

"Cash basis" means the method of accounting in which revenues are recognized when actually received and expenses are recognized when actually disbursed.

Subp. 6.

Ending inventory.

"Ending inventory" means the cost of unopened pull-tab and tipboard deals, paddlewheels, unused bingo paper or sheets, and the cost of pull-tab, tipboard, and paddlewheel games in play on the last day of the month. Sales tax is excluded from ending inventory.

In this circumstance, the organization has the option of performing the required audit or review through the license termination plan approval date, or another date specified by the organization that is between the approval date and the last day of the fiscal year.

A list of the types of gambling audit reportable condition or material weakness to include in this report follows in subitems (1) to (12). This list is illustrative, and not all-inclusive:

B.

A regulatory checklist questionnaire must be included with the report from item A, on a form prescribed by the commissioner. Responses to questions on this checklist must be based on findings and information collected during the course of the audit.

Subp. 7.

Organization's response to report on internal control structure.

The licensed organization shall file with the Department of Revenue a response to the reportable conditions item by item, including any remedial action taken or proposed by the organization. This response may be submitted with the annual audit or review or be filed separately within 60 days after the due date of the annual audit or review. The response must include the following items:

A.

Any profit carryover variance as shown on the reconciliation of profit carryover supplemental schedule must be identified. All identified variances which require amendments to tax returns must be amended and submitted to the Department of Revenue along with supporting documentation. The auditor must, upon agreement with the organization, assist in preparing an amended return or returns for the organization. The response must indicate if such amendments have been submitted to the Department of Revenue.

Variances which require adjustments instead of amendments should be adjusted by sending a letter to the Department of Revenue requesting an adjustment along with supporting documentation. Requests for an approved adjustment cannot be substituted for filing amended tax returns that correct the condition that resulted in the variance. If the variance is identified, an amended tax return or returns must be filed.

Unidentified variances must be investigated by the organization and identified. If after investigation an organization is unable to resolve the variance, the organization shall contact the Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue will then assist the organization in resolving the variance. Final resolution will be based upon an organization's individual situation and can include: amended tax returns, an approved adjustment, required reimbursement from nongambling sources, or a combination of all three.

B.

If the comparison of games played to games reported on schedule B, Report of Non-bar Coded Games Played, Destroyed or Lost, or B-2, Report of Bar Coded Games Played, Destroyed or Lost, shows a difference, the organization must respond to the reportable conditions item by identifying and stating if the game difference was due to the games being:

(1)

missing or lost;

(2)

destroyed, with state approval;

(3)

played and unreported; or

(4)

reported in following month.

C.

Specific items as noted on the internal control structure report must be responded to.
