Legislative Changes

As of September 1, 2009, House Bill 2447 abolished the Board of Tax Professional Examiners (BTPE) and its functions, and they were transferred to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).  

 As part of bill implementation, licensing exams will be reviewed by subject matter experts and by testing methodology experts and revised.  This will accommodate exam administration at testing centers throughout the state.  Testing at these sites will be by way of computer platform.

After March 1, 2010, the only way to complete a Property Tax Professional required state examination will be at one of seventeen PSI testing centers located throughout the state. 

RPA Reviews

For individuals working toward the Registered Professional Appraiser (RPA) designation, TAAD offers a four-day intense review.

Daily sessions are held from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.   Students attending should be aware that this is a review session, not primary instruction.

RPA Review locations

The February, September, October 2014 reviews are being held at the TAAD office in Austin.

The December 2014 review is being held at the North Austin/Round Rock Marriott Hotel.


TDLR Testing Schedule

Participants are responsible for setting up a test date with PSI (TDLR’s third-party vendor for testing services). Once the candidate has received an eligibility postcard from PSI, the exam can be scheduled online at PSIexams.com. If it appears no testing dates are available, we would encourage the candidate to try calling PSI directly to request that a seat be opened up.

TAAD's RPA Review Class
Prior to taking any TDLR examination, TAAD recommends downloading and using the candidate information bulletin offered by TDLR.

Retaking the TAAD RPA Review Course
If you have already taken a review course with TAAD, but did not pass the RPA exam, you may retake the review course the next time TAAD offers it. For a returning TAAD student, the cost to retake the review course is $150.


Through its seminars, conferences, and courses TAAD seeks to provide its members with a wide variety of educational opportunities.
