The board may decline to consider any issue that was not first raised, considered, or decided by the department in the informal conference decision that is the subject of the appeal.
(e) The board will set a date for a hearing on the appeal to convene approximately 80 days after the effective date of the notice of assessment. No later than 20 days before the scheduled hearing date, the board will send written notice of the time and place of the hearing to the department and to each property owner and municipality that received notice under 15 AAC 56.020(b) of an appeal of the department's notice of assessment.
(f) On timely motion by the department, other party to the appeal, or on its own motion, the board may approve a prehearing schedule that requires the parties, including any cross-appellant or intervenor, to file statements, briefs, and documentary evidence before the hearing is convened. If a party, including a cross-appellant or intervenor, fails to submit documentary evidence as required in a prehearing schedule, the board may preclude the party, cross appellant, or intervenor from relying on the documentary evidence at the hearing. The board may issue other orders it determines necessary to expedite and conduct the prehearing or hearing processes.
