Segregation & Mapping
Welcome to the Segregation and Mapping Department. The Segregation and Mapping Team is responsible for maintaining the Assessor’s property information and also maintaining the parcel map.
The team is committed to providing the citizens of Spokane County with outstanding customer service.
If you do not find an answer to your question from the information below please call the Assessor’s Office at 509-477-3698 or email us at ASSRSEG@spokanecounty.org.
From December 1st until early February the Segregation and Mapping Team does not complete any segregation requests. This is done so the new levy rates can be calculated and the tax rolls can be prepared for certification to the Treasury. They use this information to calculate the next year’s property taxes. This lockout period creates a large backlog of requests and the time it takes to process a segregation request will extend to 90 – 120 days.

First contact the appropriate Building and Planning Department and get approval for your proposed changes. You will need an approved parcel to attain permits and to be compliant with zoning regulations.
All taxes for all parcels involved must be paid in full. (RCW 84.56.345) This includes first half, second half, and any delinquent taxes.
If there are multiple ownerships or property is being conveyed, then deeds need to be recorded in the Spokane County Auditor’s Office so we can correctly list ownership information. Deeds are recorded in the Spokane County Auditor’s Office.
You can submit a request for the changes to the Spokane County Assessor’s Office. Requests can be submitted in person at the Assessor’s Office in the Spokane County Courthouse or the documentation can be sent to the Segregation and Mapping Team at ASSRSEG@spokanecounty.org. We will provide you with a summary page which will include the request number and list any missing requirements. If there are missing requirements the requester will have thirty days to meet them or the request will be cancelled.
Ideally, we try to process segregation requests within 30 days of intake. However, depending on the time of year and the volume of requests it could take as long as 90 days. You will be given a time estimate when we log in your request. It is an estimate and not a guarantee.
No. We try to process requests for changes in the order that they are received to be equitable to all citizens. We can provide you with preliminary parcel numbers that you can give to your agents to keep everything moving.
- I received a letter from the Assessor’s Office stating that deeds need to be filed or that the taxes have to be paid. What should I do?
If there are missing requirements at the time we log in a request for changes, we will follow up with a letter as a reminder. You should take care of the missing requirements so that we may complete your request. If there are special circumstances you would like us to know about then email us at ASSRSEG@spokanecounty.org or call the number on the letter. If we are not contacted or if the missing requirements are not met, we will cancel your request and you will need to start the process over.
No. Legal descriptions are bought and sold, not parcel numbers. The Assessor’s Office is not involved in any real estate transaction.
Contact the Segregation and Mapping Department at (ASSRSEG@spokanecounty.org) and we will make every effort to find out when your parcel was created. However, this information is not always available. We are not required by statute to be archivists nor do we have the resources. The parcel creation date is the policy of the Building and Planning Department and has nothing to do with the Assessor’s Office.
These documents can be found on the Parcel Information Page through the SCOUT mapping and property information application at spokanecounty.org. From the SCOUT dashboard choose Parcel Information. On the top ribbon choose the Seg/Merge option. Then choose Seg Document. The Assessor’s Office has records available back to 1996. Older information will have to be attained from the Washington State Eastern Region Archives located in Cheney. EABranchArchives@sos.wa.gov
Contact us at ASSRSEG@spokanecounty.org or call the Assessor’s Office at 509-477-3698. We would be happy to review any information that you have and make any appropriate updates.
We would advise you to retain the services of a Licensed Land Surveyor. The data offered online is for informational purposes only and should not be used for any purposes beyond that.
Boundary line disputes and encroachment problems are legal issues and outside of the scope of work of the Assessor’s Office. We would advise you to contact an attorney for assistance.
The Assessor’s Office does not track or maintain easement information. Easement information may be on your deed. If not, you will need to contact the Spokane County Auditor’s Office as easements are recorded documents.
The Spokane County Auditor’s Office is the custodian for all recorded documents. Including but not limited to deeds, plat maps, records of survey and easement information.
Yes. Although the Assessor’s Office does not create or assign address, if we can confirm the updated address with the Building and Planning Department and the Public Safety team, we will update our records accordingly.
This information should be in your legal description on your deed. You can also reference your parcel number. The fifth number in the parcel number references a quarter section. 1 = Northeast Quarter; 2 = Northwest Quarter; 3 = Southwest quarter; 4 = Southeast Quarter; 5 = multiple quarter sections; 6 = multiple sections. For example, parcel 25254.3201 is in the Southeast quarter because the fifth number is a 4.
