Applications for Manatee County citizens who are interested in filling the vacancy on the county's Value Adjustment Board are due Wednesday.

The board hears appeals regarding denied property tax exemptions, petitions relating to assessments, and appeals concerning ad valorem tax deferrals, according to a county press release. The board also appoints special magistrates to hear such petitions, who then make recommendations for board members to consider.

Applicants must own homestead property in Manatee County and must not be a member of any taxing authority in Florida. Applicants must not "represent property owners, property appraisers, tax collectors, or taxing authorities in any administrative or judicial review of property taxes," the county said.

The board meets at least twice a year on the first floor of the Manatee County Administrative Center in Bradenton.
