Doña Ana County is accepting applications for four seats on the Doña Ana County Valuation Protest Board, through 5 p.m., June 18.

The two-member and two alternate members on this Board hold protest hearings and make decisions about property valuation protests.  Applicants with substantial knowledge of the Doña Ana County real estate market and appraisal methodology are preferred.

Applicants may not hold elected office while serving on the Valuation Protest Board, nor may they be public-sector employees. They must also be registered voters in Doña Ana County.
