Tax Payers sought for Appraisal Review Board service


The Board of Directors of the San Jacinto County Appraisal District is currently searching San Jacinto County tax payers interested in serving on the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) for the San Jacinto County Appraisal District (SJCAD). Service on the ARB would begin in January 2018. Qualification questionnaires must be submitted to Chief Schell, and received no later than Dec. 31. The Appraisal Review Board is a citizen board that sits in a panel of five members with one alternate to fill in as needed. The ARB listens to property owner protests that cannot be resolved informally with the San Jacinto County Appraisal District. Service on the ARB is compensated at a set per day rate, but is not considered a full time job. Attendance at an Appraisal Review Board training class is mandatory if chosen as a member. Serving on the ARB is considered a full time commitment; protest season generally runs from May through September and requires members to have availability all day on weekdays, and possibly on Saturdays. Hearings may also be scheduled during other parts of the year as well. Appraisal Review Board members may not be scheduled every day, but should be available to serve if needed. Candidates for the ARB must be current residents of San Jacinto County and must have resided in the county for at least two years. For a full list of qualifications and exclusions for candidacy, please review the Appraisal Review Board questionnaire. If interested in applying a questionnaire can be obtained by calling 936- 653-1450 or online at sjcad.org.
