HOWARD CAD SEEKING APPRAISAL REVIEW BOARD MEMBERS
The Howard Central Appraisal District is seeking applications for appointment to the local Appraisal Review Board (ARB). The ARB hears the formal appeals of taxpayers on matters of value and exemptions. It is a citizen board made up of Howard County residents who have been in Howard County at least two years. Members cannot be employed by any local government entity such as a school, city, college, or county.
The position does receive a daily service rate of $125. Training is required and is paid at the same rate as hearings. Most of the hearings are during the days, Monday through Friday, and occur June through August. A few meetings occur later in the year.

The ARB listens to the evidence of value or other information from both the appraisal district personnel and the taxpayer and then makes a decision on the preponderance of the evidence presented. The process and training are provided by the Texas State Comptroller’s office.
