Hays County Appraisal Review Board Seeks Applicants

The Taxpayer Liaison Officer for the Hays Central Appraisal District is accepting applications for consideration from candidates seeking appointment as Appraisal Review Board (ARB) members.  Service on the ARB will begin soon for the 2021-2022 term. Applications are available online at hayscad.com or at the Hays Central Appraisal District office at 21001 North IH 35 Kyle, Texas, or by calling 512-268-2522. The primary responsibility of the ARB is to weigh evidence and provide resolution of matters relating to appraisal, exemptions and challenges that cannot be resolved informally with the Appraisal District.

Individuals seeking appointment must be a resident of Hays County for at least two years and be current on property tax payments. ARB Members may serve all or part of three consecutive terms.  An ARB member must be available for hearings at the Appraisal District Office in Kyle. Meeting frequency varies depending on the time of the year.  ARB members do not work for the Appraisal District, nor does the appointment constitute a full-time job, but members are compensated when conducting hearings.
