349.165 PREMISES PERMITS.

Subdivision 1.Premises permit required; application.

A licensed organization may not conduct lawful gambling at any site unless it has first obtained from the board a premises permit for the site. The board shall prescribe a form for permit applications, and each application for a permit must be submitted on a separate form. The premises permit issued by the board runs concurrently with the license of the organization unless the premises permit is suspended, revoked, or voluntarily terminated by the organization. The board may by rule limit the number of premises permits that may be issued to an organization.

Subd. 2.Contents of application.

An application for a premises permit must contain:

(1) the name and address of the applying organization;

(2) a description of the site for which the permit is sought, including its address and, where applicable, its placement within another premises or establishment;

(3) if the site is leased, the name and address of the lessor and information about the lease the board requires, including all rents and other charges for the use of the site; and

(4) other information the board deems necessary to carry out its purposes.

An organization holding a premises permit must notify the board in writing within ten days whenever any material change is made in the above information.

Subd. 3.Fees.

(a) The board may issue premises permits to organizations licensed under section 349.16, subdivision 6. The annual fee for each premises permit is $150.

(b) In addition to the annual fee for a premises permit, an organization must pay a monthly regulatory fee of 0.1 percent of the organization's gross receipts from lawful gambling conducted at that site. The fee must be reported and paid on a monthly basis in a format as determined by the commissioner of revenue, and remitted to the commissioner of revenue along with the organization's monthly tax return for that premises. All premises permit fees received by the commissioner of revenue under this subdivision must be deposited in the lawful gambling regulation account in the special revenue fund according to section 349.151. Failure to pay the monthly premises permit fees in a timely manner may result in disciplinary action by the board.

Subd. 4.Identification of premises.

No organization may seek or accept assistance from a manufacturer or distributor, or a representative, agent, affiliate, or employee of a manufacturer or distributor, in identifying potential locations for gambling conducted by the organization.
