As a member of the Travis Appraisal Review Board (TARB), you will sit in panels of three and listen to property owners protest the market value of their property set by Travis Central Appraisal District. The taxpayer and the appraisal district will both present testimony and evidence and the TARB panel members will weigh that evidence to determine the fair market value of the property. You will base your final decision upon the facts presented to you, while adhering to the Texas Property Tax Code and the laws of this state.
- Be available to work full days, Monday through Friday and 2 Saturdays during the protest season May through October, and for mandatory training days between February and June
- Have been a Travis County resident for the last two years
The Local Administrative District Judge appoints ARB members for two-year terms. ARB members are not employees of the appraisal district and are not eligible for employee benefits by their review board service. Compensation for ARB members is a minimum per Diem of $150 per day.
The Local Administrative District Judge will review all questionnaires received and will contact respondents to schedule an interview. If selected as a candidate to serve, you will be subject to a background investigation.
