Administrative and Judicial Review

Reference Number: 

All questions of exemption under T.C.A. § 67-5-212 are subject to review and final determination by the State Board of Equalization. However, any determination by the state board is subject to judicial review by petition of certiorari to the appropriate chancery court. All other provisions of law notwithstanding, no property is entitled to judicial review of its status under T.C.A. § 67-5-201 et seq., except as provided by the Uniform Administrative Procedures Act, compiled in Title 4, Chapter 5 of the Code, and only after the exhaustion of administrative remedies as provided in T.C.A. § 67-5-212.1
