H.B. No. 4412

AN ACT – H.B. No. 4412

Relating to the arbitration deposit required for an appeal through
binding arbitration of appraisal review board orders involving
multiple tracts of land.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
SECTION 1. Section 41A.03, Tax Code, is amended by adding
Subsection (a-1) to read as follows:
(a-1) If a property owner requests binding arbitration
under this chapter to appeal appraisal review board orders
involving two or more tracts of land that are contiguous to one
another, a single arbitration deposit in the amount provided by
Subsection (a)(2) is sufficient to satisfy the requirement of
Subsection (a)(2).
SECTION 2. The change in law made by this Act applies only
to a request for binding arbitration under Chapter 41A, Tax Code,
that is filed on or after the effective date of this Act. A request
for binding arbitration under Chapter 41A, Tax Code, that is filed
before the effective date of this Act is governed by the law in
effect on the date the request is filed, and the former law is
continued in effect for that purpose.
SECTION 3. This Act takes effect September 1, 2009.
