(A) When a party files a notice of appeal with this board pursuant to paragraph (B) of rule 124-15-06 of the Administrative Code, the party filing such notice shall deposit with the board a sum based on the estimated cost of producing a certified copy of the record, including a transcript of the hearing, if applicable, copies of documents, and shipping costs. The total deposit required will be stated in the notice attached to the final order of the board.
(B) After the board has received the deposit, the transcript and copies of the file will be prepared and the cost of those items will be calculated. If the deposit exceeds the costs of these items, then a refund of the excess will be issued; if the deposit does not cover the full amount, then the appealing party will be billed for the outstanding balance.
(C) If a person alleges the inability to pay the deposit, then an "Affidavit of Indigence" must be completed. Said affidavit is available from the board upon request. Upon timely submission of the affidavit, the board will determine if the person is or is not excused from paying the deposit.
