§ 5264. Conducting the Appeals Conference; Parties to the Appeals Conference; Nature of the Appeals Conference; Additional Submissions.
(a) The appeals conference will be held by an Appeals Division conference holder who has not had any prior involvement in the appeal being discussed at the appeals conference. It is the responsibility of the Appeals Division to take a fresh look at the law and the facts and make the Appeals Division's own objective recommendation.
(b) Generally, one or more representatives from the appropriate Department will be present at the appeals conference to provide the Department's position in the appeal. Where appropriate, other Board Staff may be present at the appeals conference.
(c) A representative from another state agency may be present at appeals conferences where the tax at issue is administered by the representative's agency. Such a representative will provide his or her agency's position in the appeal.
(d) The appeals conference is not an adversarial proceeding; it is an informal discussion of the relevant facts and applicable laws. It is important that all relevant information be presented to the Appeals Division. A party may submit additional written arguments and documentary evidence to the Appeals Division at any time before or during the appeals conference, but may do so after the conference only with the consent of the Appeals Division.
(1) If any party requests permission to submit additional written arguments, documentary evidence, or both after the appeals conference and the conference holder concludes that the additional submission should be accepted, he or she will grant that party at least 15 days, but not more than 30 days without the consent of the Assistant Chief Counsel of the Appeals Division, to submit such arguments and evidence from the date the request is made. The conference holder will also grant the other party at least 15 days, but not more than 30 days without the consent of the Assistant Chief Counsel of the Appeals Division, to respond after that submission.
(2) The Appeals Division may, at any time before the appeal is final, request additional written argument, analysis, or documentation from any party, and when it does so, will determine how long to provide the party to respond and will so inform the party. The Appeals Division will also determine whether a response should be submitted by the other party, and if so will advise that party when the response is due.
