Hearings on petitions—Withdrawal.

(1) Introduction. This rule provides information about the board hearing and the withdrawal of a petition by the taxpayer. The board or one of its hearing examiners must hold individual hearings on each properly filed petition that has not been withdrawn or otherwise disposed of. A taxpayer may withdraw a petition by written notice received by the board no later than two business days prior to the scheduled hearing. The board may also allow a taxpayer to withdraw up to the time of the hearing. The board must promptly notify the assessor of the taxpayer's withdrawal.
(2) Notice of hearing. The assessor and taxpayer must be provided notice of the hearing date by the clerk of the board at least twenty-two business days before the hearing date, unless the clerk and the parties agree on a shorter time period.
(3) Continuation of appeal. If property is sold or transferred after a petition has been timely filed, either the seller/transferor or the buyer/transferee, or both, may continue to pursue the appeal if they can show the board that they have a personal stake in the outcome of the case.
(4) Testifying before board. All persons testifying before the board must swear or affirm on the record that they will testify truthfully under penalty of perjury.
