Assessor Parcel Maps

What do I need to know about Assessor's Parcel Maps

The Assessor’s Office must appraise all property in the county for property tax purposes. The first step in the assessment process is to locate and identify all parcels of property. This is done through the creation and maintenance of an Assessor's parcel map. The Cadastral Mapping and G.I.S. department manages this through the use of many documents, including:
  • Recorded / Filed Official Subdivision maps (over 5 parcel lots/parcels)
  • Recorded / Filed Official Parcel maps (5 or less parcels)
  • Recorded Resolutions or Decisions
  • Recorded Deeds
  • Recorded / Filed Official Record of Survey maps
  • Documents from outside Government agencies
  • Unrecorded Maps and written descriptions

Maps are kept as close to legal lots as possible. Maps are for Tax purposes only and as such, may reflect only information deemed important to the Assessor's process
