Appraisal Review Board (ARB)

For Frequently Asked Questions about Protesting and ARB Hearings, please click HERE

The ARB is a group of Denton County citizens (just like you) who applied and were chosen by the Denton County Administrative Judge. They have completed the required state training to become a certified Appraisal Review Board member.  The Denton County ARB is separate from Denton CAD.  The two entities are not allowed to speak value or disputes outside of a properly posted ARB hearing.


The ARB is authorized to resolve disputes between Denton County property owners and the Denton Central Appraisal District.  During ARB hearings, the Appraisal Review Board will listen to both the property owner and the appraisal district, and then make a determination.  ARB decisions are binding only for the tax year in question.  ARB hearings begin around May/June.  The ARB should complete the majority of the hearings by July 20th of each year.  In larger counties, like Denton, the hearings may extend into the fall.
