D.C. Law 13-55 rewrote subsec. (a)(1)(A) in order to simplify the requirements for the Board of Real Property Assessments and Appeals membership. D.C. Law 13-305 amended the section heading without change; repealed subsec. (f); rewrote subsec. (f-1); in subsec. (g)(2), substituted "an owner" for "a taxpayer"; rewrote subsecs. (h-1) and (j-1); and added subsecs. (j-2) and (k-1). Prior to amendment, subsecs. (f), (f-1), (h-1), and (j-1) read: "(f)(1) On or before April 30th of each year, any owner of real property, or owner's representative, may file with the Board an appeal of the amount of the owner's assessment for the upcoming tax year on a form prescribed by the Board. The form shall state clearly that all information and evidence in support of the appeal must be filed with the appeal form and shall include a statement that the owner, or owner's representative, is entitled to view, pursuant to paragraph (3) of this subsection, any response to the appeal filed by the Mayor or Assessor.
