A parcel number is a unique 10-digit number assigned by Story County (Ames parcel numbers are assigned by the Ames assessor following the same numbering convention) to each tax parcel. It may also be referred to as a geo or map reference number or parcel ID number (PIN).
Sample layout: XX-XX-XXX-XXX = Township-Section-Block-Parcel
These numbers are different from the Section Township and Range numbers assigned by the United States Geological Survey.
Parcel numbers can be determined by searching by address on the GIS Property website or by calling the Auditor's Office and supplying us with the property address or owner's name. Parcel numbers are also printed on tax statements and assessment notifications.Geo Numbering in Story County
