The IBTR strives to hear all appeals as soon as possible. The speed with which the IBTR hears any given appeal, however, depends upon the case's complexity and the IBTR's caseload. The IBTR must hold a hearing within statutory time-frames one year from the filing date of petitions challenging assessments made in general-reassessment years, and 9 months from the filing date of petitions challenging non-general-reassessment-year assessments.
