What do I do to combine parcels?
Parcel combinations are usually required to meet county, municipal, or city codes. An assessor may request a combination of parcels to allow for more practical means of assessing properties. An example of an assessor’s combination would be a building that crosses two taxing parcels. Combination forms are obtained based on the location of the lands to be combined. A combination form for the City of Kenosha can be obtained through the City Development Office, for Villages through the local building inspector, and for Townships, through the County Planning and Development Department. The requirements for combination of lands are that lands to be combined must be in the exact same name(s), the parcels must be contiguous, and all real estate taxes must be paid. Combinations of lands must be recorded with the Register of Deeds Office. Tax bills for combined parcels will take effect the following tax year.
