Mapping / Parcel Splits and Combines

A parcel split or combination by the Property Appraiser is for ad valorem taxation purposes only and does not imply the legality of the land division being requested nor the suitability for the parcel to be developed. We recommend you contact the appropriate land development, zoning, and/or planning department of your jurisdiction for questions concerning property development.

There are several benefits to combining parcels of land, including:

1) the ability to protect more property with a homestead exemption,

2) simplification of the property tax bill payment process, and

3) unlocking future land development possibilities.

You may be able to split your land into two or more parcels/lots, depending on the size of the property and its zoning/use code. This can turn into more profit for you as you rent out or even sell those lots. Selling subdivided land parcels often brings greater value for your property than selling the entire parcel as a whole.

Pursuant to Florida Statute 197.192, the Property Appraiser’s Office is not permitted to split or combine any parcels until all taxes currently available, due, or delinquent have been paid in full to the Pinellas County Tax Collector. Additionally, prior approval for any splits must be obtained from the municipality in which the property is located.

Please allow 2 – 6 weeks for the processing of your request.
