A subpoena is a legal document used to compel the testimony of an individual at a certain time and place or to require the production of books, papers, or other things.
Section 16-175 of the Property Tax Code, 35 ILCS 200/16-175, grants limited subpoena power to the Property Tax Appeal Board to compel the attendance of witnesses or the production of documents. This authority, however, does not include the power to compel access to a taxpayer's property for the purpose of preparing an appraisal. Section 1910.68(a) of the Board's Rules sets forth standards for issuance of a subpoena.

Subpoenas may be served by any person lawfully authorized to serve a subpoena within the state. The party requesting its issuance is responsible for its service and must pay all lawful witness and mileage fees. At the instance of any party requesting a subpoena or on its own motion, the Property Tax Appeal Board may petition any circuit court for an order enforcing the subpoena.
