mandated is a reporting verb ...like demanded/ordered/reported etc
Correct Sentence in case of a reporting verb is : mandated + that + First form of verb/be

agree the be form is correct. but the sentence in option A is not parallel in itself - the last piece should be 'and be not taxed'? Hence, none of the options are correct. Kindly clarify.

"Mandated" is a bossy verb. So it must follow "that+first form of verb"

"MAnadate" is a subjunctive verb.
Sub + Mandate + that + Sub + Plural Verb (Why first from of be?)

Request e-GMAT experts to through some light.

Subjunctive verb form needs to be used as you mention in your post. Note that the subjunctive form of be is be.

Hope this helps !
