Assessor Map and Property Card Images


A few words of explanation...

The lines drawn on these maps are not the legally enforceable boundaries of these properties. 
They are a close approximation of the shapes and relationships of properties that are defined more precisly
in recorded deeds, and are sufficiently accurate for tax valuation assessment purposes.
Each numbered polygon on a map corresponds to a single real property deed. 

PVA maps may be hand drawn, digitally rendered, or as in the case of Kentucky, lines drawn on aerial photos.
Kentucky real property deeds are based on locally surveyed metes and bounds descriptions, rather
than on the Federally surveyed ranges, sections and quarter sections used in many other parts of the country.

Every property is identified by a 12 digit Tax Map Key (TMK), the first three digits of which is a map number 
(001 through 140), followed by digits (and in some cases letters), that serve to further uniquely identify the 
property. The polygons on these 140 PVA maps contain the one to five digit identifying number assigned to each 
property represented on that map. These map parcel numbers are contained in the last three to five digits of the 
full 12 digit TMK for the property. 

These are digital images (photographs, not scans) of the Carter County Tax Assessor maps. The actual maps are 
in a large format, approximately 36 inches on a side, so multiple images were needed to create (hopefully) viewable maps. 

Details of real property ownership and tax liability are maintained on Propery Cards that are contained 
in files in each PVA ("Property Valuation Assessor") office in the county Court House. Property Cards often
contain a photo of any structures on the property.

Below is a link to a photo of the master county tax map that hangs on a wall in the PVA office.
The master map is about four feet on a side, so this photo will only give you a general idea of the areas
covered by the over 140 individual maps. Note that while the areas covered by the individual maps are drawn
as rectangles on the Master Map, the actual individual map boundaries are irregular, and some Master Map
rectangles map actually contain several sub-maps (commonly, residential areas).
