MTA's Board of Review Training meets new state mandate
Starting with the 2021 board of review term of office, all board of review members must complete State Tax Commission-approved training at least once per term (regardless of the amount of time you have served on the board of review). The “Basic” session of MTA's Board of Review Training--being offered virtually in February--meets this new training mandate. Additional sessions, including "Beyond Basics" and "Advanced" allow you to gain additional knowledge. The “Advanced” class has also been approved by the STC for assessor renewal credit.
