Bill Caption

Relating to a request for binding arbitration of certain appraisal review board orders.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 1802 would extend the deadline for appealing an appraisal review board order to 60 days, rather than 45 days, from the date the property owner receives notice of the order. It would also require the comptroller to provide property owners with a written notice of deficiencies in a rejected application for binding arbitration, and allow the property owner 15 days to cure the deficiencies.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports HB 1802 for promoting the principles of individual liberty and limited government. While simple in scope, this bill would help keep government accountable by granting additional time for property owners to file appeals and eliminate confusion by harmonizing the deadline to request arbitration with the deadline for filing a lawsuit in district court.
