270C.98 SENIOR ACCREDITATION.
The legislature finds that the property tax system would be enhanced by requiring that
every senior appraiser in the Property Tax Division of the department obtain senior accreditation
from the State Board of Assessors. Every senior appraiser, including the department's regional
representatives, and every county assessor within two years of the first appointment under
, must obtain senior accreditation from the State Board of Assessors. The board
shall provide the necessary courses or training. If a department senior appraiser or regional
representative fails to obtain or maintain senior accreditation, the failure shall be grounds for
dismissal, disciplinary action, or corrective action. Except as provided in section
, paragraph (c), the commissioner must not approve the appointment of a county
assessor who is not senior accredited by the State Board of Assessors. No employee hired by
the commissioner as a senior appraiser or regional representative shall attain permanent status
until the employee obtains senior accreditation.
