The ARB’s Role in the Property Tax System

The local property tax system follows the principle of checks and balances. An appraisal district
board of directors hires the chief appraiser and sets the budget. The directors have no authority to
set values or appraisal methods. The chief appraiser carries out the appraisal district’s legal duties,
hires the staff, makes the appraisals and operates the appraisal office.

The appraisal review board (ARB) is the judicial part of the system. The ARB is a separate body
from the appraisal office and serves a different function. It hears and resolves disputes over appraisal
matters. This is a very broad and important responsibility, but the ARB must be sensitive to its legal
and practical limits.

First, the ARB only has authority over matters submitted to it. The ARB has no role in the day to
day operations of the appraisal office or in appraising property.

Except where it is deciding a protest, challenge or a correction motion, the ARB has no authority
to change a value or correct the appraisal records directly. In a challenge, it must order the chief
appraiser to reappraise or correct the records related to the challenge. Only in resolving taxpayer
protests can the ARB make changes or set a value on its own. Such a change only affects the
property in question.
