What is an Assessor's Parcel?

The Assessor identifies parcels and assigns them a number for appraisal and tax purposes only.

An Assessor's Parcel is not necessarily a legal lot. A single legal lot may be assigned several Assessor Parcel numbers. The Office of the County Assessor is not required to follow legal lot boundaries and is not directly involved in the process of approving subdivisions.
