Report to Governor & General Assembly due Oct. 31, 2023 (Chapter 654, Acts of 2022).

In June 2022, the Task Force on Property Appraisal and Valuation Equity was authorized by the General Assembly (Chapter 654, Acts of 2022).

The Task Force is to address the persistent misvaluation and undervaluation of property owned by minorities by studying strategies and actions that will: help ensure that governmental oversight and industry standards and practices further valuation equity; increase training of appraisers to combat valuation bias; remove barriers to entry into the appraisal profession by minorities; assist in the development of a model for a meaningful reconsideration of value process; and reduce or eliminate bias related to automated valuation models and alternative property valuation methods. The Task Force will identify legislative or other policy recommendations to reduce bias in valuations, through enforcement, compliance, or other methods.

Authorization for the Task Force ends June 30, 2024.
