The ARB's Role in the Property Tax System

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.
