A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 
AN ACT
  relating to the consideration of the use of property or a comparable
  property in certain appeals of an appraisal review board order.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Subchapter A, Chapter 23, Tax Code, is amended by
  adding Section 23.04 to read as follows:
         Sec. 23.04.  CONSIDERATION OF USE OF RETAIL PROPERTY ON
  APPEAL.  (a)  This section applies only to an appeal of an appraisal
  review board order regarding real property used for retail purposes
  brought under Chapter 41A or 42 of this code or Subchapter Z,
  Chapter 2003, Government Code.
         (b)  A property must have the same highest and best use as the
  subject property to be considered a comparable property.
         (c)  Notwithstanding Section 23.013, a use restriction on
  the subject property that prohibits the continuation of the current
  use of the property, or prohibits a competitive use of the property,
  by a subsequent owner or tenant may not be considered in the
  determination of the property's highest and best use.  This
  subsection does not apply to a use restriction imposed or
  enforceable by a governmental entity.
         SECTION 2.  The changes in law made by this Act apply only to
  an appeal under Chapter 41A or 42, Tax Code, or Subchapter Z,
  Chapter 2003, Government Code, that is filed on or after the
  effective date of this Act. An appeal under Chapter 41A or 42, Tax
  Code, or Subchapter Z, Chapter 2003, Government Code, that is filed
  before the effective date of this Act is governed by the law in
  effect on the date the appeal is filed, and the former law is
  continued in effect for that purpose.
         SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect immediately if it receives
  a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as
  provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution.  If this
  Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this
  Act takes effect September 1, 2017.
