Non-acquiescence statements

The Department of Revenue issues a non-acquiescence statement for select adverse informal decisions by the Board of Tax Appeals (BTA).

These statements let the Department voice disagreement with the decision and inform taxpayers that the Department will not treat their tax issue the same way as the BTA.

These statements do not change the result of the BTA decision for the named Taxpayer for the tax period under appeal.

The Department will review every adverse decision issued after July 1, 2014, but non-acquiescence statements will only be issued when the decision has a broad impact.

Informal BTA decisions are public and can not be appealed by either party.

Non-acquiescence statements are issued as the need arises. There is no publication schedule.
