   (2)   Every petition for review shall state the reasons upon which the petitioner relies and shall include a certification by the petitioner that the facts set forth therein are true.
   (3)   The Tax Review Board shall within a reasonable time consider each petition for review and notify the petitioner in writing of its decision thereon. 336
   (4)   The filing of a petition for review shall not stop the accrual of interest and penalty otherwise due. 337
