The Three Member Board

Robert Thomason, Associate Member
Margie George, Associate Member

The Board consists of three members who serve as a quasi judicial review panel for property owners who wish to challenge the market value of their property. Market values set by a Property Appraiser may be changed by the Board when a property owner can prove the appraised value is not based on the property’s fair market value.
