Where to Find Assessment & Sales Data to Assist in Filing an Appeal
The Cumberland County Property Mapper is an internet-based property mapping application created by the Cumberland County GIS Department. Through this application, users can now view our spatial data over the web and be able to zoom, identify features, and locate an address within the county.
Of particular significance, users can identify a property’s assessed value, a property’s features and compare the sales prices of properties in the neighborhood and throughout the county. This is the information that can be of importance in filing an assessment appeal.

- How To Search a Property for Comparison (PDF)
- How To Search the County or Municipality for Comparison (PDF)
While the data available online--for free--is sufficient to file an appeal and contains much more information than previously available, it does not include a complete representation of property records in the County's database. Complete records may be found at no cost by visiting the County's Assessment Office or may be accessed online for a nominal fee by subscribing to Courthouse Online.
