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.

Since 1995 tax lot information has been maintained on computer in the assessor's office. The Web-based Deschutes County D.I.A.L. Assessor Inquiry System includes searchable tax lot information. The fee-based subscriber version of the Local Area Virtual Atlas (LAVA) includes GIS map layers related to tax lots.

Records at the Deschutes Services Center, Assessor's Office:
[Official Record of Descriptions of Real Property-Tax Lot Cards], 1961-1995 (45 cu.ft.).
