Default getting an address

We have property in Smith county. It has a house on it with one address. We need to have an additional address for the property. Would I go to the post office or some other county office?

Call the post office and talk to them. That's who changed our address out in the country when we were "911'd" and had to go from a rural route address to a street address for emergency (ambulance) purposes.

I would think you would go to the county and break the property up into different lots. But if it already is then just go to the post office.

Addresses are usually assigned by whichever local government office issues building permits for that area. If it is a rural area it would probably be the county.

I got the new address. For others who might need to know you call the 911 (not the emergency 911) people. They are in charge of asigning new addresses
