What is an executive level review?
Cases involving the following issues may be designated for executive level review:
- Issues for which no precedent has been established, or
- Issues that have industry-wide significance or impact.
Only a limited number of cases are treated as executive level. A case accepted for executive level treatment will be heard by both the assigned TRO and a designee of the Director. This is the only review type where the taxpayer and Operating Division receive a proposed decision with 30 days to respond, followed by a final decision.
How does a case become executive level?
You may request Executive level review or the Department may designate it based on the complexity of the issues. If your request for Executive level review is denied, the Department will notify you of this decision and assign your case to either small claims or mainstream review.
