473F.01 PURPOSE; USE OF PROCEEDS.
    Subdivision 1. Purpose. The legislature finds it desirable to improve the revenue raising and
distribution system in the seven-county Twin Cities area to accomplish the following objectives:
(1) to provide a way for local governments to share in the resources generated by the growth
of the area, without removing any resources which local governments already have;
(2) to increase the likelihood of orderly urban development by reducing the impact of
fiscal considerations on the location of business and residential growth and of highways, transit
facilities and airports;
(3) to establish incentives for all parts of the area to work for the growth of the area as a
whole;
(4) to provide a way whereby the area's resources can be made available within and through
the existing system of local governments and local decision making;
(5) to help communities in different stages of development by making resources increasingly
available to communities at those early stages of development and redevelopment when financial
pressures on them are the greatest; and
(6) to encourage protection of the environment by reducing the impact of fiscal considerations
so that flood plains can be protected and land for parks and open space can be preserved.
    Subd. 2. Use of proceeds. Except as provided in section 473F.08, subdivision 3a, the
proceeds from the areawide tax imposed under this chapter must be used by a local governmental
unit in the same manner and for the same purposes as the proceeds from other ad valorem taxes
levied by the local governmental unit.

473F.03 ADMINISTRATIVE AUDITOR.
    Subdivision 1. Election of administrative auditor. On or before July 1 of 1972 and each
subsequent even-numbered year the auditors of the counties within the area shall meet at the call
of the auditor of Hennepin County and elect from among their number one auditor to serve as
administrative auditor for a period of two years and until a successor is elected. If a majority is
unable to agree upon a person to serve as administrative auditor, the commissioner of finance
shall appoint one from among the auditors of the counties in the area. If the administrative auditor
ceases to serve as a county auditor within the area during the term for which elected or appointed,
a successor shall be chosen in the same manner as is provided herein for the original selection, to
serve for the unexpired term.
    Subd. 2. Staff; facilities; reimbursement. The administrative auditor shall utilize the staff
and facilities of the auditor's office of the county served to perform the functions imposed by
sections 473F.01 to 473F.13. The administrative auditor's county shall be reimbursed for the
marginal expenses incurred by its county auditor and auditor's staff hereunder by contributions
from each other county in the area in an amount which bears the same proportion to the total
expenses as the population of the other county bears to the total population of the area. The
administrative auditor shall annually, on or before February 1, certify the amounts of total
expense for the preceding calendar year, and the share of each county, to the treasurer of each
other county. Payment shall be made by the treasurer of each other county to the treasurer of the

473F.04 [Repealed, 1983 c 222 s 45]
473F.05 NET TAX CAPACITY.
On or before August 5 of each year, the assessors within each county in the area
shall determine and certify to the county auditor the net tax capacity in that year of
commercial-industrial property subject to taxation within each municipality in the county,
determined without regard to section 469.177, subdivision 3.
History: Ex1971 c 24 s 5; 1979 c 322 s 19; 1986 c 444; 1987 c 291 s 235; 1988 c 719 art 5 s
50; 1989 c 329 art 13 s 20; 1Sp1989 c 1 art 9 s 70; 1991 c 291 art 1 s 42
473F.06 INCREASE IN NET TAX CAPACITY.
On or before July 15 of each year, the auditor of each county in the area shall determine
the amount, if any, by which the net tax capacity determined in the preceding year under section
473F.05, of commercial-industrial property subject to taxation within each municipality in the
auditor's county exceeds the net tax capacity in 1971 of commercial-industrial property subject
to taxation within that municipality. If a municipality is located in two or more counties within
the area, the auditors of those counties shall certify the data required by section 473F.05 to the
county auditor who is responsible under other provisions of law for allocating the levies of that
municipality between or among the affected counties. That county auditor shall determine
the amount of the net excess, if any, for the municipality under this section, and certify that
amount under section 473F.07. Notwithstanding any other provision of sections 473F.01 to
473F.13 to the contrary, in the case of a municipality which is designated on July 24, 1971, as a
redevelopment area under section 401(a)(4) of the Public Works and Economic Development
Act of 1965, Public Law 89-136, the increase in its net tax capacity of commercial-industrial
property for purposes of this section shall be determined in each year by using as a base the net
tax capacity of commercial-industrial property in that municipality in the 1989 assessment year,
rather than the net tax capacity of such property in 1971. The increase in total net tax capacity
determined by this section shall be reduced by the amount of any decreases in net tax capacity
of commercial-industrial property resulting from any court decisions, court related stipulation
agreements, or abatements for a prior year, and only in the amount of such decreases made during
the 12-month period ending on May 1 of the current assessment year, where such decreases, if
originally reflected in the determination of a prior year's net tax capacity under section 473F.05,
would have resulted in a smaller contribution from the municipality in that year. An adjustment
for such decreases shall be made only if the municipality made a contribution in a prior year based
on the higher net tax capacity of the commercial-industrial property.

473F.07 COMPUTATION OF AREAWIDE TAX BASE.
    Subdivision 1. Areawide net tax capacity. Each county auditor shall certify the
determinations under sections 473F.05 and 473F.06 to the administrative auditor on or before
August 1 of each year.
The administrative auditor shall determine an amount equal to 40 percent of the sum of the
amounts certified under section 473F.06. The resulting amount shall be known as the "areawide
net tax capacity for ........(year)."
    Subd. 2. Certification by commissioner. The commissioner of revenue shall certify to the
administrative auditor, on or before August 10 of each year, the population of each municipality
for the preceding year, the proportion of that population which resides within the area, the average
fiscal capacity of all municipalities in the area for the preceding year, and the fiscal capacity of
each municipality in the area for the preceding year.
    Subd. 3. Areawide tax base distribution index. The administrative auditor shall determine,
for each municipality, the product of (a) its population, and (b) the proportion which the average
fiscal capacity of municipalities for the preceding year bears to the fiscal capacity of that
municipality for the preceding year. The product shall be the areawide tax base distribution index
for that municipality. If a municipality is located partly within and partly without the area its index
shall be that which is otherwise determined hereunder, multiplied by the proportion which its
population residing within the area bears to its total population as of the preceding year.
    Subd. 4. Distribution net tax capacity. The administrative auditor shall determine
the proportion which the index of each municipality bears to the sum of the indices of all
municipalities and shall then multiply this proportion in the case of each municipality, by the
areawide net tax capacity.
    Subd. 5. Certification to county auditor. The result of the procedure prescribed by
subdivision 4 shall be known as the "areawide net tax capacity for ........(year) attributable to
..................(municipality)." The administrative auditor shall certify such product to the auditor of
the county in which the municipality is located on or before August 15.

473F.08 NET TAX CAPACITY.
    Subdivision 1. County auditor to determine. The county auditor shall determine the net
tax capacity of each governmental unit within the auditor's county in the manner prescribed
by this section.
    Subd. 2. Computation of net tax capacity. The net tax capacity of a governmental unit is
its net tax capacity, as determined in accordance with other provisions of law including section
469.177, subdivision 3, subject to the following adjustments:
(a) There shall be subtracted from its net tax capacity, in each municipality in which the
governmental unit exercises ad valorem taxing jurisdiction, an amount which bears the same
proportion to 40 percent of the amount certified in that year under sections 473F.06 and 473F.07
for the municipality as the total preceding year's net tax capacity of commercial-industrial property
which is subject to the taxing jurisdiction of the governmental unit within the municipality,
determined without regard to section 469.177, subdivision 3, bears to the total preceding year's
net tax capacity of commercial-industrial property within the municipality, determined without
regard to section 469.177, subdivision 3;
(b) There shall be added to its net tax capacity, in each municipality in which the
governmental unit exercises ad valorem taxing jurisdiction, an amount which bears the same
proportion to the areawide net tax capacity for the year attributable to that municipality as the
total preceding year's net tax capacity of residential property which is subject to the taxing
jurisdiction of the governmental unit within the municipality bears to the total preceding year's net
tax capacity of residential property of the municipality.
    Subd. 3. Apportionment of levy. The county auditor shall apportion the levy of each
governmental unit in the auditor's county in the manner prescribed by this subdivision. The
auditor shall:
(a) by August 20, determine the areawide portion of the levy for each governmental unit
by multiplying the local tax rate of the governmental unit for the preceding levy year times the
distribution value set forth in subdivision 2, clause (b);
(b) by September 5, determine the local portion of the current year's levy by subtracting the
resulting amount from clause (a) from the governmental unit's current year's levy;
(c) for determinations made under clause (a) in the case of school districts, for taxes payable
in 2002, exclude the general education tax rate and the portion of the referendum tax rate
attributable to the first $415 per pupil unit from the local tax rate for the preceding levy year;
(d) for determinations made under clause (a) in the case of the Metropolitan Council, for
taxes payable in 2002, exclude the transit operating tax rate from the local tax rate for the
preceding levy year; and
(e) for determinations made under clause (a) in the case of transit opt-out cities, for taxes
payable in 2002, exclude the opt-out transit rate from the local tax rate for the preceding levy year.
    Subd. 3a. Bloomington computation. Beginning in 1987 and each subsequent year through
1998, the city of Bloomington shall determine the interest payments for that year for the bonds
which have been sold for the highway improvements pursuant to Laws 1986, chapter 391, section
2, paragraph (g). Effective for property taxes payable in 1988 through property taxes payable in
1999, after the Hennepin County auditor has computed the areawide portion of the levy for the
city of Bloomington pursuant to subdivision 3, clause (a), the auditor shall annually add a dollar
amount to the city of Bloomington's areawide portion of the levy equal to the amount which has
been certified to the auditor by the city of Bloomington for the interest payments for that year for
the bonds which were sold for highway improvements. The total areawide portion of the levy for
the city of Bloomington including the additional amount for interest repayment certified pursuant
to this subdivision shall be certified by the Hennepin County auditor to the administrative auditor
pursuant to subdivision 5. The Hennepin County auditor shall distribute to the city of Bloomington
the additional areawide portion of the levy computed pursuant to this subdivision at the same
time that payments are made to the other counties pursuant to subdivision 7a. For property taxes
payable from the year 2009 through 2018, the Hennepin County auditor shall adjust Bloomington's
contribution to the areawide gross tax capacity upward each year by a value equal to ten percent
of the total additional areawide levy distributed to Bloomington under this subdivision from 1988
to 1999, divided by the areawide tax rate for taxes payable in the previous year.
    Subd. 3b. Livable communities fund. (a) The Hennepin County auditor shall certify the
city of Bloomington's interest payments for 1987 for the bonds which were sold for highway
improvements pursuant to Laws 1986, chapter 391, section 2, paragraph (g), and which were
certified as an addition to the city of Bloomington's areawide levy for taxes payable in 1988.
(b) For taxes payable in 1996 through taxes payable in 1999, the Hennepin County auditor
shall certify the amount calculated by subtracting the amount certified under subdivision 3a from
the amount in paragraph (a). For taxes payable in 2000 and subsequent years, the Hennepin
County auditor shall certify the amount calculated in paragraph (a).
(c) The Metropolitan Council may annually certify to the Ramsey County auditor the amount
calculated under paragraph (b), or a lesser amount, but not to exceed $5,000,000, to be used to
provide funds for the cleanup of polluted lands in the metropolitan area.
(d) The amount certified under paragraph (c) shall be certified annually by the Ramsey
County auditor to the administrative auditor as an addition to the Metropolitan Council's areawide
levy under subdivision 5.
    Subd. 4. Tax rate; noncommercial property. In 1972 and subsequent years, the county
auditor shall divide that portion of the levy determined pursuant to subdivision 3, clause (b),
by the net tax capacity of the governmental unit, taking section 469.177, subdivision 3, into
account, less that portion subtracted from net tax capacity pursuant to subdivision 2, clause (a).
The resulting tax rate shall apply to all taxable property except commercial-industrial property,
which shall be taxed in accordance with subdivision 6.
    Subd. 5. Areawide tax rate. On or before August 25 of each year, the county auditor shall
certify to the administrative auditor that portion of the levy of each governmental unit determined
under subdivisions 3, clause (a), 3a, and 3b. The administrative auditor shall then determine the
areawide tax rate sufficient to yield an amount equal to the sum of such levies from the areawide
net tax capacity. On or before September 1 of each year, the administrative auditor shall certify
the areawide tax rate to each of the county auditors.
    Subd. 5a. Governmental unit in two or more counties. If a governmental unit is located in
two or more counties, the computations and certifications required by subdivisions 3 to 5 with
respect to it shall be made by the county auditor who is responsible under other provisions of law
for allocating its levies between or among the affected counties.
    Subd. 6. Application to commercial-industrial property. The areawide tax rate determined
in accordance with subdivision 5 shall apply to each commercial-industrial property subject to
taxation within a municipality, including property located within any tax increment financing
district, as defined in section 469.174, subdivision 9, to that portion of the net tax capacity of the
item which bears the same proportion to its total net tax capacity as 40 percent of the amount
determined under sections 473F.06 and 473F.07 is to the amount determined under section
473F.05. The tax rate determined in accordance with subdivision 4 shall apply in the taxation of
the remainder of the net tax capacity of the item.
    Subd. 7.[Repealed, 1980 c 437 s 20]
    Subd. 7a. Certification of values; payment. The administrative auditor shall determine for
each county the difference between the total levy on distribution value pursuant to subdivisions
3, clause (a), 3a, and 3b, within the county and the total tax on contribution value pursuant to
subdivision 6, within the county. On or before May 16 of each year, the administrative auditor shall
certify the differences so determined to each county auditor. In addition, the administrative auditor
shall certify to those county auditors for whose county the total tax on contribution value exceeds
the total levy on distribution value the settlement the county is to make to the other counties of the
excess of the total tax on contribution value over the total levy on distribution value in the county.
On or before June 15 and November 15 of each year, each county treasurer in a county having a
total tax on contribution value in excess of the total levy on distribution value shall pay one-half
of the excess to the other counties in accordance with the administrative auditors certification.
    Subd. 8.[Repealed, 1980 c 437 s 20]
    Subd. 8a. Fiscal disparities adjustment. In any year in which the highest class rate for class
3a property changes from the rate in the previous year, the following adjustments shall be made to
the procedures described in sections 473F.06 to 473F.08.
(1) An initial contribution tax capacity shall be determined for each municipality based
on the previous year's class rates.
(2) Each jurisdiction's distribution tax capacity shall be determined based upon the
areawide tax base determined by summing the tax capacities computed under clause (1) for all
municipalities and apportioning the resulting sum pursuant to section 473F.07, subdivision 5.
(3) Each jurisdiction's distribution levy shall be determined by applying the procedures
described in subdivision 3, clause (a), to the distribution tax capacity determined pursuant to
clause (2).
(4) Each municipality's final contribution tax capacity shall be determined equal to its initial
contribution tax capacity multiplied by the ratio of the new highest class rate for class 3a property
to the previous year's highest class rate for class 3a property.
(5) For the purposes of computing education aids and any other state aids requiring
the addition of the fiscal disparities distribution tax capacity to the local tax capacity, each
municipality's final distribution tax capacity shall be determined equal to its initial distribution tax
capacity multiplied by the ratio of the new highest class rate for class 3a property to the previous
year's highest class rate for class 3a property.
(6) The areawide tax rate shall be determined by dividing the sum of the amounts determined
in clause (3) by the sum of the values determined in clause (4).
(7) The final contribution tax capacity determined in clause (4) shall also be used to
determined the portion of each commercial/industrial property's tax capacity subject to the
areawide tax rate pursuant to subdivision 6.
    Subd. 9.[Repealed, 1976 c 191 s 14]
    Subd. 10. Adjustment of value or net tax capacity. For the purpose of computing the
amount or rate of any salary, aid, tax, or debt authorized, required, or limited by any provision of
any law or charter, where such authorization, requirement, or limitation is related in any manner
to any value or valuation of taxable property within any governmental unit, such value or net tax
capacity shall be adjusted to reflect the adjustments to net tax capacity effected by subdivision

such class thereof, located within the governmental unit, and (b) the increase required by this
subdivision shall be that amount which bears the same proportion to the amount added to the

to the net tax capacity of commercial-industrial property, or such class thereof, located within the
governmental unit; and (2) in determining the market value of real property within a municipality

473F.09 ADJUSTMENTS IN DATES.
If, by reason of the enactment of any other law, the date by which the commissioner of
revenue is required to certify to the county auditors the records of proceedings affecting the net
tax capacity of property is advanced to a date earlier than June 30, the dates specified in sections
473F.07 and 473F.10 may be modified in the years to which such other law applies in the manner

473F.10 REASSESSMENTS AND OMITTED PROPERTY.
    Subdivision 1. Reassessment orders. If the commissioner of revenue orders a reassessment
of all or any portion of the property in a municipality other than in the form of a mathematically
prescribed adjustment of valuation, or if omitted property is placed upon the tax rolls, and the
reassessment has not been completed or the property placed upon the rolls, as the case may be, by
November 15, the net tax capacity of the affected property shall, for purposes of sections 473F.03
to 473F.08, be determined from the abstracts filed by the county auditor with the commissioner
of revenue.
    Subd. 2. Adjustment in succeeding year. If the reassessment, when completed and
incorporated in the commissioner of revenue's certification of the net tax capacity of the
municipality, or the listing of omitted property, when placed on the rolls, results in an increase
in the net tax capacity of commercial-industrial property in the municipality which differs from
that used, pursuant to subdivision 1, for purposes of sections 473F.03 to 473F.08, the increase
in the net tax capacity of commercial-industrial property in that municipality in the succeeding
year, as otherwise computed under section 473F.06, shall be adjusted in a like amount, by an
increase if the reassessment or listing discloses a larger increase than was used for purposes of
sections 473F.03 to 473F.08, or by a decrease if the reassessment or listing discloses a smaller
increase than was used for those purposes, provided that no adjustment shall reduce the amount
determined under section 473F.06 to an amount less than zero.
    Subd. 3. Application. Subdivisions 1 and 2 shall not apply to the determination of the
tax rate under section 473F.08, subdivision 4, or to the determination of the net tax capacity
of commercial-industrial property and each item thereof for purposes of section 473F.08,
subdivision 6
.

473F.11 LATE LEVIES.
    Subdivision 1. Failure to certify levy. If a governmental unit does not certify its levy to the
county auditor by November 25, then for purposes of section 473F.08, subdivision 3, clause (a),
and section 473F.08, subdivision 5, its levy shall be deemed to equal its levy in the preceding year.
    Subd. 2. Change in levy. If a governmental unit certifies its levy to the county auditor on
or before November 25, no change in its levy subsequent to that date shall be recognized for
purposes of section 473F.08, subdivision 3, clause (a), and section 473F.08, subdivision 5.
    Subd. 3. Application. Subdivisions 1 and 2 shall not apply to section 473F.08, subdivision 3,
clause (b), and section 473F.08, subdivision 4.
    Subd. 4. Adjustment in succeeding year. If, in any year, the levy employed in respect to
a governmental unit, for purposes of section 473F.08, subdivision 3, clause (a), and section
473F.08, subdivision 5, is determined under subdivision 1 or subdivision 2, and its actual levy
as determined subsequent to November 25 is a different amount, then its levy as otherwise
determined in the succeeding year shall, for purposes of those provisions, be increased in the
amount of the difference if the actual levy was greater than that employed for purposes of those
provisions, or decreased in the amount of the difference if the actual levy was less than that
employed for purposes of those provisions.

473F.13 CHANGE IN STATUS OF MUNICIPALITY.
    Subdivision 1. Certification of change in status. If a municipality is dissolved, is
consolidated with all or part of another municipality, annexes territory, has a portion of its territory
detached from it, or is newly incorporated, the secretary of state shall immediately certify that
fact to the commissioner of revenue. The secretary of state shall also certify to the commissioner
of revenue the current population of the new, enlarged, or successor municipality, if determined
by the director of the Office of Strategic and Long-Range Planning incident to consolidation,
annexation, or incorporation proceedings. The population so certified shall govern for purposes
of sections 473F.01 to 473F.13 until the Metropolitan Council files its first population estimate
as of a later date with the commissioner of revenue. If an annexation of unincorporated land
occurs without proceedings before the director, the population of the annexing municipality as
previously determined shall continue to govern for purposes of sections 473F.01 to 473F.13 until
the Metropolitan Council files its first population estimate as of a later date with the commissioner
of revenue.
