1.8a tabulated statement of the dollar amount due to each taxing authority and the amount
1.9of the state tax from the parcel of real property for which a particular tax statement is
1.10prepared. The dollar amounts attributable to (1) the county levy, (2) the state tax levy,

1.18Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, or Washington under chapter 398A
1.19shall be listed on a separate line directly under the appropriate county's levy. If the county
1.20levy under this paragraph includes an amount for a lake improvement district as defined
1.21under sections 103B.501 to 103B.581, the amount attributable for that purpose must be
1.22separately stated from the remaining county levy amount. In the case of Ramsey County,
1.23if the county levy under this paragraph includes an amount for public library service
1.24under section 134.07, the amount attributable for that purpose may be separated from the
1.25remaining county levy amount. The amount of the tax on homesteads qualifying under the
1.26senior citizens' property tax deferral program under chapter 290B is the total amount of
1.27property tax before subtraction of the deferred property tax amount. The amount of the
2.1tax on contamination value imposed under sections 270.91 to 270.98, if any, must also
2.2be separately stated. The dollar amounts, including the dollar amount of any special

2.29be included in the envelope containing the property tax statement, and if more than
2.30one taxing district relative to a given property decides to include a notice with the tax
2.31statement, the county treasurer or auditor must coordinate the process and may combine
