(a) In the event duplicate petitions are filed with the Chief of Board Proceedings, the Chief of Board Proceedings will determine which petition was authorized by petitioner.
(b) The Chief of Board Proceedings will contact the petitioner and/or the agent who filed the duplicate petitions by telephone, electronic mail, or facsimile machine and by registered or certified mail with return receipt, and will allow 10 days for a written response. In the event no written response is received after 10 days, the first petition received will be accepted and all other petitions will be rejected as duplicate petitions.
(c) For purposes of this regulation, "duplicate petition" means a petition filed by the petitioner, or its agent on its behalf, subsequent to the petition previously filed by or on behalf of the same petitioner for the same assessment year at issue. A subsequent petition that seeks to correct or supplement a previously filed petition will not be considered a duplicate petition for purposes of this regulation.
