If the matter is still in dispute following the review by the Screening Officer, you can request a review by a Hearing Officer on or before the payment due date listed on your Screening Decision Notice. Please note that there is a $100 applicable fee to request for an appeal to a Hearing Officer. The fee will be refunded if the Penalty Notice is rescinded.
At the Hearing Review appointment, you can provide evidence to support your claim. The Hearing Officer’s decision is final.
Can someone else act on my behalf during a Screening Review or Hearing Review appointment?
Yes. You can authorize another person to act as your representative during a Screening Review or Hearing Review appointment. Please insert the Authorized Representative Information within the AMPS Request Form
What will happen if I ignore the Penalty Notice?
If you do not choose one of the options listed on your Penalty Notice, the Township assumes you have decided not to dispute the Penalty Notice and you may be required to pay additional administrative fees.
Additionally, if the Penalty Notice and administrative fees remain unpaid, the fees will be added to the person's tax roll.
