Appraisal Review Board

Montgomery County Appraisal Review Board Seeks Applicants for Service in 2022

Applications for Montgomery County Appraisal Review Board members (ARB) are now being accepted.

The ARB was created by the Texas Legislature to provide an independent judicial review of property owner protests of values by the Montgomery Central Appraisal District (MCAD).  ARB members are appointed by the Administrative District Judge of Montgomery County.

Service on the ARB would begin in January 2022.  Montgomery County citizens interested in the ARB service should submit a completed application.  While there is an immediate need for applicants, completed applications are accepted year round to fulfill any potential vacancies.
