State Tax Court

Code: FC-8100

A state trial court of original jurisdiction that tries and adjudicates controversies involving deficiencies or overpayments of taxes covered by state tax law which may include personal income tax, property tax, corporate excise tax, timber tax (where relevant), local budget law and property tax limitations. It is the responsibility of the Tax Court to provide expeditious, convenient, equitable and effective judicial review of state and local tax assessments; create a consistent, uniform body of tax law for the guidance of taxpayers and tax administrators that promotes predictability in tax law and its application; and make decisions of the court readily available to taxpayers, tax administrators and tax professionals. In some jurisdictions, the Tax Court may also hear appeals of inheritance tax determinations from the courts of probate jurisdiction.
