The Property Assessor maintains a large amount of public information on local properties in order to correctly classify and assess them for tax purposes. While the primary purpose for these records and documents is to assist assessment personnel with their duties, this information is also used extensively by other government offices, members of the local real estate, legal and financial communities, as well as the general public.

Property Record Card

We create and maintain an individual property record card on every parcel of property in the county. Information contained on property record cards includes:

  • street address of the property
  • names of owner(s)
  • address of owner(s)
  • parcel identification number
  • subdivision name (if applicable)
  • lot number (if applicable)
  • dimensions of lot
  • acreage for larger tracts
  • construction types and components for structures (type roofing, foundation, etc.)
  • extra features of improvements (fireplaces, driveways, etc.)
  • value for improvements
  • value for land
  • overall appraisal for tax purposes for land and all improvements
  • assessment classification
  • overall assessment value
  • transfer data, including sales history (amounts, dates, deed volume and page numbers)

Property Maps

The Assessor's Office maintains a set of maps of all properties in the jurisdiction to keep inventory of size, location, and boundary information. These maps are constantly updated through the use of data contained in transfer deeds, registered surveys and recorded plats of subdivisions.
