How to Find a Parcel Number

You'll be asked to provide a parcel number throughout the permitting process.  If you do not know the tax parcel number, call the Thurston County Assessor's Office at (360) 867-2200 or look up the number on the Assessor's Parcel Search website. Important: When using parcel search, use the street address and the street name only.  Do not use directions or words such as "Way" or "Avenue" or "Blvd."  For example, for Thurston County Building 4, you'd type in 929 and then Lakeridge -- not 929 Lakeridge Drive S.W.

PIN Number

If you are a regular Building Development Center (BDC) customer a PIN can be set up for your use. The PIN allows you to have a “profile” updated in the permit tracking database. The profile contains a default phone or fax number and email address where you can receive automatic notifications of inspection results and have documents that are available in the Department Information System sent to you. Check with Permit Center staff to obtain a PIN or if you have questions about this Voice Permit feature
