If I represent myself, what are my responsibilities?
|Like an attorney or agent, you should research the legal and factual issues involved in your case, know the Tribunal's Rules that apply to your case, and gather evidence.
As the petitioner, in a property tax matter, you have the burden of establishing the true cash value of your property, or, in a non-property tax matter, of showing that the assessment is erroneous. The evidence you gather and the testimony you provide will determine whether you have established your property's true cash value or shown that the assessment was erroneous.
Though the small claims procedures do not require you to be an attorney, the law does require that you comply with the Tribunal's Rules.
