If you do not have an address or know what it is, you can still sign up to appeal with Ownwell with a Parcel Number or APN. A property’s parcel number is a unique ID number assigned to each property for tax purposes. It can be found on your tax assessment valuation notice and on the county assessor’s website. The process to sign up this way is easy, but it may take us a little longer to verify property ownership. 


Follow these steps to sign up a property with a Parcel Number or APN:

  1. Select “Start Your Appeal” in the upper right corner of the website on desktop or select the three lines in the upper right on your mobile device then select “Start Your Appeal” at the button of the menu.

  3. Select your state and then county. In some counties, we provide a link to the county appraisal district’s website. You can use this link to find out your Parcel Number or APN. 

  4. Enter your Parcel Number or APN, to search for the correct property. By using our search function, we will be able to quickly match your Parcel Number or APN to the correct property. Otherwise, we may require additional information and steps to verify property ownership.

  5. Select “Calculate Savings” to continue. Note: We will only be able to show a savings estimate if you select an APN match from our search. 

  6. Continue signing up by answering the questions as prompted. The questions vary depending on property type and location.

  7. Make it official by digitally signing the Ownwell Service and Authorization Agreements. To sign on a desktop or laptop computer, hold down your mouse or trackpad and draw your signature. To sign on a mobile device, use your finger to draw your signature.

    Having trouble signing? We require a certain amount of complexity for a signature to be accepted. Keep drawing to complete the signature.
