Openings on Assessment Appeals Boards

San Rafael, CA – The County of Marin is recruiting candidates with expertise in real estate, accounting, law or property appraisal as potential new members of its two Marin County Assessment Appeals Boards. The application deadline is 5 p.m. September 4.

Appointed by the Marin County Board of Supervisors, the Assessment Appeals Board members hear appeals by property owners regarding values set by the County Assessor. In recent years, the caseload of the state-mandated Assessment Appeals Boards has necessitated hearings about every four weeks. Appeals are heard alternately by the two boards and might include additional meetings. Board members are paid a stipend per meeting.

Candidates must have at least five years of professional experience in California as one of the following: certified public accountant; public accountant; licensed real estate broker; attorney; property appraiser accredited by a nationally recognized professional organization; property appraiser certified by the Office of Real Estate Appraisers; or property appraiser certified by the State Board of Equalization.

Employees of an assessor's office within the past three years are not eligible. Applicants must file documentation of qualifying experience with their application to the Clerk of the Board.

Additional information is also available on the State Board of Equalization website.  Apply online or learn more about the application process by calling the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at (415) 473-7331. You can also request an application by mail at Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, Suite 329, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael CA 94903 or by emailing
