S.B. No. 1404
relating to the deadline for filing a suit to compel an appraisal
review board to change an appraisal roll.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
SECTION 1. Subsection (g), Section 25.25, Tax Code, is
amended to read as follows:
(g) Within 60  days after receiving notice of the
appraisal review board’s determination of a motion under this
section, the property owner or the chief appraiser may file suit to
compel the board to order a change in the appraisal roll as required
by this section.
SECTION 2. The change in law made by this Act applies only
to a suit to compel an appraisal review board to order a change in an
appraisal roll filed on or after the effective date of this Act. A
suit to compel an appraisal review board to order a change in an
appraisal roll filed before the effective date of this Act is
governed by the law in effect on the date the suit was filed, and the
former law is continued in effect for that purpose.
SECTION 3. This Act takes effect immediately if it receives
a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as
provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution. If this
Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this
Act takes effect September 1, 2011.
