Joinder Deed Information

 “Joinder Deeds” are filed to combine 2 or more contiguous but separately assessed parcels of land. This creates one (1) parcel for tax purposes. In order to combine the tracts, a “joinder deed” must be filed and the deed must contain the following language:

"The above parcels shall hereby become merged into one parcel for taxing purposes and shall not be separately conveyed without prior express approval of the municipality as provided by law."

Joinder deeds must be filed by December 31 of any year to take effect for the entire upcoming tax year. Deeds filed between January 1st and June 30th will be processed for that year’s school taxes only.

Most Monroe County municipalities require municipality or borough approval BEFORE deeds are recorded and parcels can be joined into one tract. Please contact your township or borough for any further information concerning their regulations for joining parcels.
