Tax Maps File Information and Recommended Programs and Settings
The online Tax Maps are in Portable Document Format (PDF) and require a PDF viewing program. Adobe Reader 10 or newer (Adobe Website) is recommended. The file size of the Tax Maps typically range between 30 KB to 200 KB depending on the features of each individual map.
The online Tax Maps contain interactive links which, when clicked, download and display separate PDFs of townships, sections, quarter-sections, cities and villages.
For the online Tax Maps to function properly, you must enable PDF viewing within your web browser and enable the use of links within PDFs.
If your web browser is incapable of viewing PDFs within the browser, the PDFs will be downloaded to your PC and will open in Adobe Reader or your preferred PDF viewing program and the links in the online Tax Maps will not function. 64-bit web browsers are typically incompatible with 32-bit PDF viewers and are incapable of displaying PDFs in the browser window. A 32-bit web browser is not only recommended but may be a requirement for the Tax Maps to be opened within the web browser and for the links to function properly.
The interactive map (below) requires the Adobe Flash Player (Adobe Website), a free download.
