HB1229 by Howard, Charlie (Relating to the appointment and removal of appraisal review board members.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Tax Code to require the county judge of a county in which an appraisal district is established to appoint or remove members of the appraisal review board. Under current statute, board members are appointed or removed by resolution of a majority of the appraisal district board of directors.
The bill would require county judges to appoint the members of the appraisal review board for the district as soon as practicable after January 1, 2010, and to designate which members are to serve a one-year term. The term of appraisal review board members serving on December 31, 2009, would expire on January 1, 2010.
