The AAB is a governing body provided for under the Constitution of the State of California, as well as Article IV of the Butte County Code. The AAB is an independent entity whose function is to resolve disputes between the County Assessor and taxpayers over values of locally assessed property. The AAB consists of three members appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Members must have at least five years of experience as either a lawyer, Certified Public Accountant, licensed real estate broker, property appraiser, or is a person who the nominating member of the Board of Supervisors has reason to believe is possessed of competent knowledge of property appraisal and taxation. AAB members serve for a period of three years, and continue to serve until their successor is appointed. Currently, the AAB has one vacancy due to the recent resignation of an AAB member. The notice for the unscheduled vacancy was posted on August 11, 2020, and since that time one application was received from Jodi White. Additionally, the terms for the remaining two regular AAB members and three alternate AAB members expired September 7, 2020. Randall Stone and Dave Johnson have requested reappointment as regular members, and Tom Fiscus has requested reappointment as an alternate member, all with terms ending September 3, 2023. The Board of Supervisors may make appointments to the AAB or provide further direction to staff on recruitment and appointments to the AAB. (Clerk of the Assessment Appeals Board)
