DescriptionAbstract
The active tax parcel boundaries for all of Tompkins County for a given year. The boundaries represent the one-to-one match with the parcel boundaries shown on the final paper maps for a given year.
Purpose
The parcel boundaries represent legal descriptions of property ownership, as recorded in various public documents in the Tompkins County Clerk's Office. This is the database of property ownership and information in Tompkins County, as mandated by New York State. This database can be related to the New York State Office of Real Property Services (RPS) database extract using either the SWISPRINTK field or the PARCELKEY field.
Supplemental Information
Properties that are tracked by an account number (utilities, railroads, etc.) may be shown as several separate tax parcel boundaries, with different tax map print keys, even though they are tracked in the RPS database under the same account number and treated as one single parcel. The parcel region will show these account-number properties as one tax parcel boundary, while the printkey region will show each separate tax parcel boundary that is a part of the account number. As of 2005, the tax parcel boundaries have not been edge-matched by municipality, except for Villages within their respective Town. This data set is derived from the tax parcel region of all tax parcel data sets in Tompkins County and is maintained as a geodatabase featureclass by municipality.
