DeKalb County Property Appraisal Maps
When considering various questions about property types, sizes, and ownership, or when looking at potential city borders, it is sometimes very helpful to refer to the Property Maps provided by DeKalb County through the DeKalb County Tax Commissioner web page. Although very useful, these maps do not offer the wealth of information available through the County GIS Office, but they are, as far as I know, the only information available on line.
Normally to access these maps, one has to go through a somewhat tedious, but not difficult, process. After you first go to the Tax Commissioner web page, you then click on the Property Tax line on the left menu, which will take you to a new window, where you must enter limited information on either the street name, the property owner's name, or the property address. After a few more steps, and based on how detailed the information is that was first entered, this will ultimately lead you to a page with the Property Tax Information for a particular piece of property.
On THAT page, towards the bottom, you will then find the line 'Click here to view property map' which is hyperlinked to the pertinent map. Finally, you have found the map that you MAY be seeking. I say MAY, if only because to get to this point, you may have had to guess on which property to go with to get to the map you truly want. At this point, if you think you missed your targeted property, you can simply go to the corner of the map, where each quadrant at that intersection, is labeled. Take the correct reference from the adjacent quadrant you believe to be correct, and replace it in the browser web page address at the top of the window. For example, if you are on map 18 254, but need to be on 18 260, simply replace 254 with 260 in the web address line, hit Enter, and the correct map will appear.
These property maps cover an area approximately 1/2 mile by 1/2 mile, with some variation. The map includes all properties within that quadrant, with basic information to include street address, dimensions of the property, original plat references and the specific Parcel ID Number. A typical Parcel ID Number may be something like 33 289 19 089 (totally made up) which breaks down to Section (33), Quadrant (289), Block (19) and Parcel Number (089). The title of the map will essentially be Section and Quadrant (33 289). Dig deeper into the map to get the rest of the information you may be interested in.
The map provided here is drawn to include the entire proposed City of Tucker, with the quadrant grid drawn across it. By using this map, you can skip the tedious process of going through the Tax Commissioner web page. To use, identify the quadrant you're interested in, and simply click the matching hyperlinked number below. This will take you to the Property Tax map on the DeKalb County website.
As an alternative, if you download the pdf file from Scribd, the map itself includes the necessary hyperlinks within each quadrant. (You have to download the file to your computer for it to work.)
