One complaint can put your professional license in jeopardy
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) handles complaints against licensed property tax professionals. Once they receive a complaint, they’ll first determine the validity of the allegations and examine whether such allegations involve possible violations of Chapter 1151 of the Texas Occupations Code. TDLR may then proceed with a formal investigation, part of which requires giving you an opportunity to respond. TDLR will also review any documents or materials provided in your defense.
If an informal resolution cannot be reached by the TDLR, you will be required to appear before an administrative law judge (ALJ) at the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH), where you will have the opportunity to provide evidence and call on witnesses to testify on your behalf. The ALJ will offer a Proposal for Decision, which the Board may adopt as a final order or reject and explain why a different final order will be rendered. An unfavorable ruling can result in disciplinary actions such as reprimand, suspension, or revocation of your property tax professional license.
