The Appraisal Review Board’s Role in the Property Tax System

The Appraisal Review Board (ARB) is appointed by the appraisal district’s Board of Directors.  There is an application process prior to the appointment.  The board members must be a resident of the district and must have resided in the district for at least two years.  The members of the board hold office for terms of two years beginning January 1, and may serve three consecutive terms.

The Appraisal Review Board presides over the formal hearings during the appeals process, determining the market value of the property in question based on information presented to them by the property owner (or the owner’s agent) and the appraisal district representative.

“The Appraisal Review Board (ARB) is a group of impartial citizens that serve as the judicial part of the protest system.  The Appraisal Review Board is a separate and independent body from the Milam Appraisal District and serves a different function.  The Appraisal Review Board hears and resolves disputes over appraisal matters based on evidence provided by both the taxpayer and the appraisal district.  While this is a broad and important responsibility , the Appraisal Review Board must be sensitive to its legal and practical limits while adhering to Texas property tax codes.  The Appraisal Review Board has authority over matters submitted to it and has no role in the day to day operations of the appraisal office or in appraising property.  Except where it is deciding a taxpayer protest, the Appraisal Review Board has no authority to change a value or change the appraisal records directly.”
