Property Tax Right Arbitration 41A.02

Section 41A.02 – Notice of Right to Arbitration

Property owners need to file a property tax protest and attend the ARB hearing to be able to request binding arbitration. The can attend the property tax hearing in person or via affidavit.

The appraisal review board must send the property owner information regarding binding arbitration with the official notice of the property tax hearing results (which are sent via certified mail). This information must explain the property owner’s right to request binding arbitration and include a copy of the form to request binding arbitration.

Property owners can only appeal market value (not unequal appraisal) in binding arbitration. However, owners with a valid market value appeal are urged to consider binding arbitration. The independent real estate appraiser or real estate broker will understand disputes and evidence regarding market value.
