How Do I Find the Parcel Number of a House?

Visit the county tax assessor website where the property resides, access the Geographic Information Systems map, and input the property’s address into the designated search field. Property parcel number is also found on property tax bills.

Parcel numbers, also known as Assessor Property Numbers or APN, identify property owners and monitor tax payments. Both personal and commercial properties have this unique identifier, given by the county property or tax assessor. Numbers follow a formulaic code to describe land purpose and property details, such as the city and specific neighborhood the property is located. Parcel number structure consists of five parts, written as XXX-XX-XXX-XXX. The first set identifies township, the second identifies property tract, the third identifies original lot number, and the fourth is the unique parcel identifier.
