The Benton County Assessment Department recently launched an enhancement to its web-based property account search tool, which now features a hyperlink to a scanned copy of the deed along with deed reference numbers to property sales back to 2002.
To access the search tool, go online to www.co.benton.or.us/assessment/property_search.
Website users can search for properties using a street address, property owner name, account number, tax lot data or sales data. Users can then click on the appropriate account listed in the search results to view the property detail.
When viewing the property detail, users can navigate to "Sales" page using the "Property Account Search" menu. On the "Sales" page, deed reference numbers are listed and hyperlinked to a scanned PDF copy of the deed.
