    Subdivision 1. Certification of payment. Except as provided in subdivision 2, if a deed or
other instrument conveys a parcel of land that is less than a whole parcel of land as described in
the current tax list, the county auditor shall not transfer or divide the land in the auditor's official
records, and the county recorder shall not file and record the instrument, unless the instrument
of conveyance contains a certification by the county treasurer that the taxes due in the current
tax year for the whole parcel have been paid. This certification is in addition to the certification
for delinquent tax required by section 272.12.
    Subd. 2. Exceptions. No certification of current tax paid is required when the land is being
conveyed to the federal government, the state, or a home rule charter or statutory city or any other
political subdivision. No certification of current tax paid is required under subdivision 1 for any
sheriff's or referee's certificate of sale or other instrument if a certification of delinquent tax for the
instrument is not required under section 272.12.
