Frequently Asked Question of the Day

If land has been drawn as two or more separate assessor’s parcels, does that mean that those APN's can each be separately transferred, sold, leased, financed or developed ?

 If an overall area of land has been drawn and numbered as two or more separate assessor’s parcels on the assessor’s maps, does that fact alone mean that those separate assessor’s parcels can each be separately transferred, sold, leased, financed or developed ?

 No.  Depending on where the land is located, the city’s or county’s building, planning and/or community development department has primary authority to determine if any specific area of land can be separately transferred, sold, leased, financed or developed.

Mission Statement

The Assessor's Office is mandated by the California Constitution to annually prepare, and deliver a fair and accurate assessment roll. To accomplish this mandate the Assessor's Office must identify, determine ownership of and establish the taxable value of all land, improvements and personal property (including boats and aircraft) located in Tulare County. All these functions must be done in compliance with State, County and local laws. The information compiled in these mandated functions is annually delivered to the Auditor - Controller / Treasurer-Tax Collector / Registrar of Voters in the form of an assessment roll; and is also statistically reported to the State, the County Administrative Office and the public.
