Tax Lot Cards


Tax lot cards, which contain official descriptions of real property, are used to track land ownership and lot size and also may serve as a deed reference. Records include tax lot number; the location of the land in reference to township, range, and section; and a description and record of changes to the property, acreage, and land owner.

The BentonMaps Web site provides a user interface to view and query tax lot, zoning, survey documents, subdivision and partition plats, addressing, aerial photography, topography, and other digital map layers (GIS data). It also links to scanned images of assessment maps, survey plats, and subdivision and partition plats.
