AS 43.05.240. Taxpayer Remedies.

(a) A taxpayer aggrieved by the action of the department in fixing the amount of a tax or penalty may apply to the department within 60 days after the date of mailing of the notice required to be given to the taxpayer by the department, giving notice of the grievance, and requesting an informal conference to be scheduled with an appeals officer. The taxpayer shall be given access to the taxpayer's file in the department in the matter for preparation for the informal conference. At the informal conference, the taxpayer may present to the appeals officer arguments and evidence relevant to the amount of tax or penalty due the state. If the department determines that a correction is warranted, the department shall make the correction.

(b) A party who believes that the appeals officer is unduly delaying a hearing process may notify the commissioner in writing. Within 30 days after being notified by a party, the commissioner may issue an order prescribing a schedule for the appeals officer to complete the informal conference or setting a meeting at which that schedule will be discussed and prescribed. The schedule may be subsequently modified by consent of the parties. If the commissioner fails to issue an order within 30 days after receiving notice of a party's belief of undue delay, the department's action in fixing the amount of tax or penalty shall be considered to have been summarily affirmed by the appeals officer the same as if an informal conference decision to that effect were issued on the last day of that 30-day period.
