As we continue the conversion from El Dorado County’s antiquated mainframe property tax system to the more cost-effective server-based Megabyte system, some changes occurred as a result of the transition.
The Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) is now called the “Fee Parcel Number.” If you know your old APN, simply add a “0” before the former two-digit number and replace the ending “100” with “000.” For example, 116-030-09-100 is now 116-030-009-000. Parcel Numbers can be found at: https://www.edcgov.us/assessor or by calling the Assessor’s office at (530) 621-5719.
Current year secured tax bills, which were mailed in November of 2018, were the very first generated from the new Megabyte system. In this initial printing, only the first owner’s name of the property, as listed in the tax rolls, printed on the bills. This has since been modified so that both owners’ names appear on the tax bills.
