Parcels Search Form

Parcel Taxroll Search

The Parcels Search tab provides many options for searching on property appraiser parcel data. Any option selected is combined with other selected options. If you do not get search results, remove some search options. It is easy to provide too much specific information to search on and get no results.

Search Within Mapextent

  • This limits parcels searched to the current map area shown in the Map tab.

Search within Drawing Polygons

  • This limits parcels searched to a polygon created using the Drawing Tools.
  • The polygon must either be from an existing drawing project or saved to a new project before this will work.

County

  • Select a county to limit the search to.
  • Searching one county is much faster than searching multiple counties or the whole state.
  • Aggregate parcel searches go much faster when searching multiple counties or the whole state.

Counties Search

Search Multiple Counties

  • Select one or more counties to limit the search to.
  • The more counties you select and the more parcels each county contains, the slower the search will be.

Owner Name Contains

  • Owner name formats vary between counties, e.g. lastname firstname OR firstname lastname, etc.
  • You can enter a partial owner name.
  • Capitalization and punctuation are ignored.
  • If you are having trouble finding an owner name, try entering less information, i.e. a partial name or trying reversing lastname firstname.

Owner Mailing Address Contains

  • Owner mailing address is just the address portion, not the city/state/zip code.
  • You can enter a partial owner mailing address.
  • Capitalization and punctuation are ignored.
  • If you are having trouble finding an owner mailing address, try entering less information, i.e. a partial address.

Owner Mailing City Contains

  • Less is more - if you do not find the city, try less characters.

Owner Mailing State Contains

  • States are abbreviated.

Owner Mailing Zip Code Contains

  • You can enter a comma delimited list of zip codes.
  • You can enter a partial zip code.

Parcel ID (PIN) Contains

  • PIN and ALTKEY are searched.
  • You can enter a partial parcel ID.
  • If you are having trouble finding a PIN, zoom in to a small area of the county you are searching in. Then use the "i tool" to click on a parcel. Inspect the PIN format, and make sure you are searching using the correct format, i.e. some counties include dashes in the PIN and others don't. In addition, Section / Township / Range info is sometimes re-ordered in the PIN.

Site Address Contains

If you are just searching for an address to zoom to, it is better to use the address search bar above the the map. The address search bar is much more forgiving on the format of the address, whereas using the parcel search form requires much greater accuracy in specifying the address. Searching for addresses in the Parcel Search Form is better for finding a list of parcels along a street.

  • Less is more - try entering just the street name with no prefixes, etc if you are having trouble finding a street.
  • Do not enter a city, state or zip code.
  • Prefix directions are abbreviated, e.g. North is N.
  • Street modifiers like Avenue are abbreviated, e.g. AVE.
  • Capitalization and punctuation are ignored.
  • Vacant land may or may not be addressed, it varies by county.

Site City Contains

  • You can enter a partial city name.

Site Zip Code Contains

  • You can enter a comma delimited list of zip codes.
  • You can enter a partial zip code.

Subdivision Contains

  • Not all counties have searchable subdivision names.
  • Less is more - try not to be too specific at first.
  • You can enter a partial subdivision name.

Legal Description Contains

  • Enter a partial legal, the shorter the better.
  • Formatting of a legal description can vary.
  • You can usually find subdivisions by searching the legal for subdivision names.

Land Use Search

Land Use Types

  • This is the two-digit Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) standard version of land use codes that are assigned to each parcel as the primary land use and available statewide.
  • Multiple land use codes can be selected.

Land Use (4-digit) Includes

  • This is the four-digit land use codes that are assigned to each parcel as the primary land use.
  • You can enter a comma delimited list of land use codes.
  • Four-digit codes are not available in every county.
  • The number of codes and description of each code varies widely between counties.

Aggregate Parcels Search By

  • No Parcel Aggregation: This option searches the normal parcel database.
  • Three additional versions of parcels are available to search that are aggregated in different ways. The purpose for aggregated parcel data is to quickly identify and search large tracts of land consisting of multiple parcels. The aggregated parcel data only contains parcels over 9 acres. The aggregation is done by county.
  • Sale Transaction = Aggregated by book / page or docnum. Don not use this to search for individual sales.
  • Owner Name - Disaggregate - Aggregated by owner name, where contiguous parcels are aggregated, but other tracts with the same owner within the county are treated as separate entities.
  • Owner Name - Aggregated by owner name county-wide.
