(B) Appeals qualifying for resolution in small claims are those that:

(1) Originate from decisions of a board of revision for real estate that qualifies for the "nonbusiness credit" provided for in section 319.302 of the Revised Code; or

(2) Do not originate from decisions of a board of revision and the amount in dispute does not exceed ten thousand dollars exclusive of interest and penalty; and

(3) The taxpayer elects for small claims resolution.

(C) Small claims decisions have no precedential value, are final as to all parties, and cannot be appealed.

(D) The transcript from the lower tribunal shall be certified within forty-five days of the filing of a notice of appeal. The case shall otherwise proceed according to the case milestone schedule located on the board's electronic case management system or as otherwise ordered by the board.
