What is the property record file?

Every assessor prepares and maintains a property record file for each parcel of real property including improvements on leased land, in the county. Any changes made to the assessment information of the property will be reflected in the property record file. The information that you will find in the property record file includes, but is not limited to:

  • Current Owner and Mailing Address
  • Drawings and Photos
  • The Legal Description
  • Recent Deed Recordings
  • Tax District Codes
  • Several Other Important Items Pertinent to the Valuation of the Property

We recommend each property owner review their property record file to ensure the accuracy of the data. Incorrect data can produce incorrect valuations.
