Signature of Movant
A chief appraiser may use this motion to correct, for any of the five preceding years: (1) clerical errors that affect a property owner’s liability for a tax imposed in that tax year; (2) multiple appraisals of a prop-
erty in that tax year; (3) inclusion of property that does not exist in the form or at the location described in the appraisal roll; or (4) an error in ownership. Pursuant to Tax Code Section 1.04(18), “‘Clerical Error’
means an error: (A) that is or results from a mistake or failure in writing, copying, transcribing, entering or retrieving computer data, computing, or calculating; or (B) that prevents an appraisal roll or a tax roll
from accurately reflecting a finding or determination made by the chief appraiser, the appraisal review board, or the assessor; however, ‘clerical error’ does not include an error that is or results from a mistake
in judgment or reasoning in the making of the finding or determination.”
