5229. Assignment of Application for Administrative Hearing to Appeals Division for Appeals Conference.

(a) Upon receipt of an application for administrative hearing, Board Staff shall promptly:

(1) Acknowledge its receipt;

(2) Assign the application to the Appeals Division for an appeals conference;

(3) Schedule an appeals conference; and

(4) Notify the applicant regarding the date, time and location of the appeals conference.

(b) Upon completion of the appeals conference, Appeals Staff will promptly issue a determination as to each issue raised in the application and provide notice of the determination to the applicant in a Decision and Recommendation. Appeals Staff may find that the applicant is not entitled to the relief requested or may order that one or more of the following types of relief be granted: that the sale of the property will irreparably damage the applicant and that the property will not be sold; that the property, or a portion thereof, be released to the applicant or to the person from whom it was seized; that the tax as determined is excessive and that the amount of the determination be reduced.

(c) If the applicant disagrees with the Decision and Recommendation in whole or in part, the applicant may request an oral hearing before the Board. A request for an oral hearing may be denied on an application for administrative hearing. If an oral hearing is granted, the matter shall be scheduled for hearing as soon as practicable.
