Finding property tax records online involves researching specific state and country government websites, according to Netronline. Different cities and states allow different records for public viewing online, and some charge a fee for using their services.
Knowing the specifics of the property including its ID number is required when searching for tax records online. There are also online resources that compile lists of government offices with electronic databases. Real estate professionals use these services to find out tax information on properties they are selling. Individuals can access their property´s records for reference when considering a loan, insurance or re-accessing its value according to the current market.
Many places, such as Dakota County, Minnesota, have extensive records online, but they require a yearly fee and an active membership to access them. Check with your local and state government for their policies and the frequency of updates to their databases to find out what services are available to the public.
