Why Do Board Members Need to be Trained?
Legislation enacted in the 2003 and 2008 sessions requires that there be at least one member at each meeting of a Board of Appeal and Equalization who has completed an appeals and equalization course developed or approved by the Commissioner of Revenue within the last four years
The legislation was enacted in part as a response to complaints that were directed to the Governor, Legislature and Department of Revenue.
