Additionally, although members may not be scheduled every day, they must be available to serve every day if needed, including some Saturdays in May, June, and July. Members are compensated per-diem for meetings and are reimbursed for expenses incurred in the performance of their duties. Per diem compensation is generally in the amount of $125 per half-day session. ARB members are also required to attend training sessions. Hearings are usually held one week per month throughout the year.
Applications must be submitted to Judge Bouressa through the CAD Taxpayer Liaison Officer and must be received by Oct. 16, 2023, to be considered.
