Assessor Maps

What are Assessment/Assessor Parcel Maps

The Assessor establishes and maintains a set of maps for every tax parcel in the County for assessment purposes. These maps serve as the basis for assessment of all real property in Sonoma County.

In Sonoma County, there are more than 1,800 assessor’s maps, representing almost 187,500 parcels of land. These maps cover the entire county, including all cities and unincorporated areas.

Assessor maps show the assessor’s parcel numbers for the tax parcel, which may or may not be the same as the legal lot. Legal lot information can be found on official maps of record or recorded deeds which are available at the County Recorder’s Office.

Being based on recorded documents, the assessor parcel maps may not match what is seen or measured in person on the ground or what is seen on various map overlays and/or aerial photographs.  Assessor Maps are NOT surveys and should not be used in defining property lines. The Assessor's office mapping staff is always available to answer your questions about how your property is mapped and numbered for assessment purposes.​
