What if my location address is incorrect on the county's website or my tax bill?
An incorrect location address has no impact on your property assessment, property taxes or property transfers. The county identifies properties by the legal description on your recorded document. When you buy or sell property you are actually transferring the legal description, not the address. Taxes are based on the legal description, not your address.
