Parcel Numbers

A number unique unto itself identifies each parcel of real estate in Jefferson County. As a social security number represents a person, this uniform parcel number represents an individually described parcel of land (usually 40 acres or less.)

This number will always remain with a parcel of land. It is used in all areas of assessing and tax billing (upper right corner of tax bill) as well as real estate transactions, zoning, mapping, etc., and offers many uses in the future.

This identifier is one that can be understood and used by everyone because it utilizes geographical terms used in defining boundaries.

008 = Municipal 
07= Town 15 = Range
13 = Section 
2 = 1/4 Section
4 = 1/4 1/4 Section
000 = Random # in 1/4 1/4 Section
