Tax maps are simply maps that show the boundary lines between individually owned properties. They may also be called parcel maps or cadastral maps.
Tax maps are intended to be a visual inventory of all real property within Kay County for the purpose of administering property tax assessment. Our tax maps our not intended for making conveyances or preparing legal descriptions.
Property deeds contain a paragraph called a legal description, which is the text that describes the boundary of the property. The legal description usually contains courses known as metes and bounds, or bearings and distances. The bearings and distances are plotted to produce an outline of the property. The work of making maps is done on the computer.
Absolutely not. Tax maps are not legal evidence of size, shape, location, ownership, or boundary of real property, public rights of way, or municipal boundary lines. Only a surveyor can determine your boundary. If, after your surveyor determines the boundary and your neighbor still refuses to acknowledge it, you then need the service of a lawyer. If both parties have conflicting surveys and their respective surveyors and lawyers will not agree, then ultimately the boundary will be determined in civil court.
