When waging war against the Empire, there are a number of ways to continue the campaign after you have exhausted all administrative processes. Litigation is often chosen, as it is generally the next formal step in the statutory process; however, this method can be costly. Alternative Dispute Resolution offers another path to resolve property tax disagreements, usually as a lower cost alternative. This session will thoroughly explore mediation and arbitration alternatives on the road toward resolution.
After attending this session, the attendee will be able to:
- Describe the mediation and arbitration processes and their steps
- Differentiate between mediation and arbitration alternatives
- Evaluate factors influencing alternative dispute resolution versus litigation
- Estimate costs associated with alternative dispute resolution options
