A revised version of the power of attorney has been added to the Tax Appeals forms page:
TA-105: Power of Attorney
This updated form encompasses the requirements of section 3000.2 (c) of the Tax Appeals Tribunal’s Rules of Practice and Procedure and should be used whenever a petitioner acts through a representative before this agency. A copy of a power of attorney previously filed with the Division of Taxation can be used instead of the new form if the same representative is retained. If a petitioner enlists a new representative upon or after the filing of a petition, the form on this website must be used.

Commissioner Giardina served as Executive Director of the NYS Athletic Commission since 2016, and had previously served as Executive Deputy Secretary of State from 2013 to 2016.

Who We Are

What We Do
The Commissioners are appointed for nine-year terms. One of the Commissioners is designated the President of the Tribunal by the Governor and is responsible for the administration of the Tribunal and the Division of Tax Appeals as a whole.
