TITLE 86: REVENUE
CHAPTER II: PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD
PART 1910 PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR APPEALS BEFORE THE PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD
SECTION 1910.55 STIPULATIONS
Section 1910.55 Stipulations
a) It is the policy of the Property Tax Appeal Board that the parties to an appeal should, to the fullest extent possible, stipulate to all matters that are not, or fairly should not be, in dispute. Prior to the hearing, during a prehearing conference, or during the hearing of any appeal, the parties may file a stipulation setting forth all pertinent facts that are not in dispute, a list of all exhibits to which there are no objections, and any other matters that are not in dispute.
b) If a stipulation revising and correcting an assessment is agreed to by all interested parties, it may be taken into consideration by the Property Tax Appeal Board provided it is fair and reasonable based on the evidence in the record. The Board reserves the right to write a decision based on the facts, evidence and exhibits in the record.
c) If the Board is able to ascertain the correct assessment of the subject property, it will issue a decision notwithstanding any typographical or clerical errors, including but not limited to an erroneous increase of valuation of particular permanent index numbers, on the stipulation form. When a party or parties propose to stipulate to a revised assessment of the property, the Board shall forward the proposed stipulation or assessment agreement to all other parties and those parties shall have 30 days to file a written objection to the proposal. Failure to object within the 30-day period to the proposed assessment shall be considered acceptance of the stipulation or assessment agreement and the Board shall issue a decision in accordance with the stipulation or agreement. The Board shall not issue a decision based on the proposed stipulation or assessment agreement prior to the expiration of the time period for intervention as provided in Section 1910.60.
d) A stipulation or assessment agreement shall be in writing and be clear and concise. Documents or papers or other exhibits annexed to or filed with a stipulation or agreement will be considered part of the stipulation or agreement. A stipulation or agreement shall be treated, to the extent of its terms, as a conclusive admission by the parties to the facts or issues stipulated or agreed to.
