In February 2023, PTAB amended its rules to require that specific appeals be filed electronically through the PTAB’s e-filing portal. Any appeal that violates this rule will not be accepted. See Section 1910.30 (b)(1) of PTAB’s administrative rules. The PTAB recommends filing all appeals through the e-filing portal, even those not mandated.
As for any appellant not required to file an appeal electronically who chooses to file by paper, all appeal forms must be mailed or hand-delivered to the Springfield office. Forms that are faxed will not be accepted. The original signature of the appellant or attorney is always required on the appeal form.
