Just did this last week; went down to the county tax assessors office and had him run a query based on property class. I had no idea even how to phrase the question but the people in the office were helpful with lots of prodding, and were able to figure out what I wanted from my inept description. Fields I got back included parcel & map #s ( I had to look the locations up manually), plus owner’s name and mailing address, property classifications and valuations. Total cost, $5 for the query, one hour to search the tax maps for street locations, and a papercut.
Got a lot of other useful info by going there in person. Met a new potential business acquaintance also.
I can tell you from experience, though, about half of the owner’s mailing addresses are long out of date. I once did a highly ineffectual mailing campaign against this data. More than half came back. I just went for the parcel locations.
