Data File

The Halifax GIS Data (ZIP) file contains countywide shapefiles of both tax parcels and street centerlines. Limited data from the county’s tax assessment database is joined to the parcels layer. An excel file describing the assessment data is also included in the ZIP file. The road centerlines layer includes address ranges.

The Halifax Tax Data (ZIP) file includes data exported from the tax assessment database. This ZIP file contains several files and includes much more data than the limited amount of assessment data joined to the parcel shapefile. An excel file describing the data included in the assessment files is also included in the ZIP file.
