Appraisal review board sets hearings
CAMERON—The Appraisal Review Board (ARB) will begin formal hearings of all property owners that filed an appeal of the 2013 Notice of Appraised Value. Protestors will be mailed a Notice of Hearing stating date, time and location of the hearing 15 days prior to their scheduled date.
The ARB is an independent panel from the Appraisal office and serves a different function. The panel only has authority over protests submitted to it and has no role in the day-to-day operation of the appraisal office or in the appraising of property. Except when deciding a taxpayer protest, a taxing unit challenge or a correction motion the ARB has no authority to change value or correct the appraisal records.
ARB members are required to attend training sessions as provided by the Property Tax Division of the Comptroller’s office and to adopt policies and procedures to which they must adhere.A copyoftheARB procedures are available in the Board Room for public review and are available upon request in the Appraisal District office located at 120 N. Houston, Cameron, TX.
An ARB member may not communicate with another person about a protest, including evidence, facts or merits of the case except during hearings. ARB members who have contact with parties of the protest, including ARB staff are required to excuse themselves from the hearing. Property owners should not attempt to contact any member oftheARB. Allgrievances against an ARB member or ARB proceeding should be directed to the Milam Appraisal District Board of Directors.
The Appraisal Review Board serves in compliance with the Property Tax Code.
