Municipal Boundaries

Municipal Boundaries contains up-to-date information on the boundaries of incorporated municipalities. It is updated quarterly to include new incorporations, annexations, de-annexations, mergers, consolidations, dis-incorporations, and/or dissolution of local governmental entities. Updates ensure that Municipal Boundaries aligns with StreetPro® and other Census Boundary data.

NOTE: The Municipal Boundary dataset may only be used internally for determining tax jurisdictions. It cannot be sold for tax jurisdiction applications or as part of a resold product or service.
