What is the difference between Right of Way and Easement?
In most cases Right of Way (ROW) is fee deeded or taken through a condemnation usually for major roads, and some utility purposes. ROW is removed from the affected properties acreage, and legal description. Some types of ROWs are not actually deeded property, and will not be removed from the acreage or the legal.

Easements only limit the use of the property they describe, and therefore remain in the gross acreage. The Assessor’s Office does not track or note easements for this reason.
