S.F. No. 774 - Changing Property Tax Exemption Criteria for Apprenticeship Training Facilities
Author: Senator Carla J. Nelson
Prepared By: Eric S. Silvia, Senate Counsel (651/296-1771)
Date: March 1, 2017


S.F. No. 774 modifies the property tax exemption criteria in current law for buildings used exclusively for a state-approved apprenticeship program through the Department of Labor and Industry by lowering the population threshold for townships that can qualify for the exemption. Current law provides that a building may qualify if it is located in a township that has a population greater than 2,000 but less than 3,000 as determined by the 2000 census, and the building was previously used by a school and was exempt for taxes payable in 2010.  The bill lowers the population threshold from 2,000 to 1,400.
