In accordance with the Texas Property Tax Code, the Dallas County Appraisal District Board of Directors has appointed members of the Appraisal Review Board (ARB). The appraisal review board (ARB) is the lawful part of the system and its members may serve two-year terms and are permitted to serve a maximum of three terms. 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.
