may propose a compromise of the amount of liability for tax, interest, penalty, additions
or fees administered by the department. The compromise offer must be submitted prior to a final decision by the department
on the petition. An informal conference, in person or by telephone, may be conducted by the department

the compromise that shall not be subject to further appeal.

(2) the promotion of effective tax administration.

(2) a petition of denial of a charitable tax exemption;
(3) a petition of the revocation of a sales tax license;
