Q:

How does the Department envision its role in appeals to the revamped Board of Finance & Revenue (BF&R)? Specifically, will the Office of Chief Counsel be representing the Department in BF&R appeals, and, if so, does it plan to increase its staffing complement in that Office?

A:

The Department is ready to work with the "new" Board of Finance and Revenue when they begin operations next year. Certainly the statutory prohibition against ex parte communications will make things different, and this may very well entail increasing the staff at the Office of Chief Counsel to handle the increased workload. Nothing will (or can) be finalized until the new Board members are named.
