The affidavit and supporting documents must be received by the ARB before the scheduled hearing date. Delivering them to our office in person is best. If you mail them, it is a good idea to send them return receipt requested. Be sure to mail them in plenty of time and be sure the address is correct. The affidavit must state that you swear or affirm that the information it contains is true, and sworn to before someone authorized to verify the Affidavit . Be sure to clearly place in the affidavit or a cover letter, the property owner’s name, address, account number, property description, and the date and time of the hearing.
