10-3-35. Appeal by director to county board of equalization--Taxpayer's right to appeal to circuit court preserved--Stay of appeal to Office of Hearing Examiners. The director of equalization may appeal any decision of the local board of equalization to the county board of equalization. An appeal from a decision of the local board shall be made and perfected by the filing of a notice with the county auditor and mailing a copy of such notice to the property owners and to the clerk or auditor, as the case may be, of the local board on or before the third Tuesday in April. Nothing in this chapter affects the right of a taxpayer to appeal from the decision of the county board of equalization to the circuit court. Such an appeal by a taxpayer to the circuit court shall preclude and stay any appeal taken by the director of equalization to the Office of Hearing Examiners.
