5322. Information Available to Assessees; Assessment Factor Hearings.
(a) Each year, the State-Assessed Properties Division must perform capitalization rate studies and develop value indicators applicable to the valuation of the unitary property of each state assessee. The capitalization rate study, the value indicators, and all other appraisal data, calculations, and information developed or used by the State-Assessed Properties Division with respect to the valuation of the assessee's state-assessed property must be made available to the state assessee upon a written request to the Chief of the State-Assessed Properties Division.
(b) At the discretion of the Board, but generally at the Board's January or February meeting in Sacramento, the Board may annually hold Assessment Factor Hearings to receive public testimony on issues relating to capitalization rates and other factors affecting values of state-assessed property and private railroad cars. At least 30 days before the Assessment Factor Hearing date, state assessees and private railroad car taxpayers, or other persons wishing to be listed on the agenda, must notify the Chief of Board Proceedings if they intend to make an oral presentation at the hearing. Testimony of persons who do not notify the Chief of Board Proceedings as set forth above may be heard after those on the agenda have completed their oral presentations. The Board may place reasonable time limits on any presentation. In lieu of oral presentations, state assessees, private railroad car taxpayers, or other persons may submit written presentations to the Chief of Board Proceedings no later than the date of the hearing.
(c) At the discretion of the Board, but generally at the Board's April meeting in Sacramento, every state assessee may be given an opportunity to make an oral presentation to the Board in a public meeting regarding the value indicators to be used to value its state-assessed unitary property, or the value of its property. In lieu of an oral presentation, a state assessee may submit a written presentation to the Chief of Board Proceedings no later than the date of the hearing.
