PARCEL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The following steps create a parcel identification number (PIN):

 

1.                  Establish the visual center, or centroid of the parcel.

2.                  Read the geographic coordinate values using a scale.

     14 digits are required 7 easting and 7 northing.  (Note: 6

     digit readings are preceded by 0.) NC State Plane is in feet.

 

“X” coordinate (EASTING)       E 1,025,565 feet east of 0

“Y” coordinate (NORTHING)    N 0,636,735 feet north of 0

 

3.                  Taking each digit separately from the east coordinate and matching it with the            

corresponding digit of the north coordinate, pair the digits by coordinate value.

Remember; EAST FIRST!

10 – 0623 – 56 – 5763 - 55

To extend the capacity of the system i.e.: manufactured homes*

 

*Condominiums, manufactured homes and buildings on leased land are identified with a “like” parcel number from the land they are located on.  The last two digits (ones) is the part of the PIN that differs. This way they can be assessed separately or to a different owner, but their geographic location is still identified with the parcel they are located on.  For example one piece of land can have two parcel records:

10-0623-56-5763-01               manufactured homeowner
