Assessor

Our staff is committed to the fair and equitable assessment of all property in Butte County. We strive to provide prompt, personal, and professional attention to all whom we serve.

Parcel Search (Assessed Value Lookup)

Current Secured Roll property values and Assessor Parcel maps are available online. The Secured Roll value is the assessed value used for tax purposes in the current fiscal year.

Parcel Search Online

The Parcel Search tool will allow you to find your property by Assessor's Parcel Number (APN) or by street address. Some parcels, such as vacant land, do not have street addresses, so you will need to use the APN for your search. 

The Parcel Detail screen will show your APN, Property Status, Situs Address, and abbreviated Legal description. The Values section will include Land Value, Improvement Value, any Exemption amount and the Total Assessed Value.

Assessor Parcel Maps

Parcel Maps are grouped by Book-Page-Parcel. These correspond to the first three parts of your APN. For example, the map containing APN 036-011-015 would be referred to as Book 36, Page 01. On that Page, Parcel 15 would be yours.

The Assessor's Office establishes and maintains a set of maps which show every parcel of land in the County. These maps serve as the basis for the assessment of all real property in Butte County and are for tax purposes only. The maps are continuously updated to reflect new boundary lines, subdivisions and surveys per documents recorded in this county. In addition to the Parcel Search tool, these maps are available for public review and purchase at the Assessor's Office.
