Applications are being accepted by the administrative judge for the state district courts in Harris County until October 15 for service on the Appraisal Review Board. The ARB is a citizen board that hears testimony and reviews evidence to determine property owner protests which cannot be resolved informally with the Harris County Appraisal District.
Service on the review board does not constitute a full-time job but is generally a full-time commitment during the summer and fall months. Members are compensated per diem when conducting hearings and attending ARB meetings.
ARB qualifications and application forms are available here or by calling the ARB executive office at 713.957.5265.
