  Abstract:  This spatial layer is a composite of tax parcel polygons, edgematched across most municipal boundaries. It serves as one of the statewide framework GIS data sets for New Jersey. It is compatible with the New Jersey Department of the Treasury MOD-IV system currently used by Tax Assessors. The composite is created from component data sets from 21 counties. All 21 counties in NJ have now been edgematched. Stewardship and maintenance of the data will continue to be the purview of county and municipal governments, but the statewide composite will be maintained by the NJ Office of Information Technology, Office of Geographic Information Systems (NJOIT - OGIS). Please note that these parcel data sets are not intended for use as tax maps. They are intended to provide reasonable representations of parcel boundaries for planning and other purposes.
  Purpose:  This layer was created to provide basic information regarding property location and ID. The normalized parcels data were developed to be compatible with the New Jersey Department of the Treasury Property Assessment Management System (PAMS) and the MOD-IV system. Attributes have been included from the MOD-IV system where a match could be made confidently between the parcel data and the statewide MOD-IV table, for ease of use of the MOD-IV data in geospatial programs.
  Supplemental Information:  Attributes in this feature class table include parcel attributes specified in the New Jersey GIS Parcel Mapping Standard, available for download at http://njgin.nj.gov/NJParcelStandards/NJGISParcelMappingStandard.pdf. Additional attributes include a large sub-set of information from matched MOD-IV records as published for public use by NJ Department of the Treasury, Division of Taxation. A statewide extract of these records is processed each year by NJOIT Enterprise Data Services and NJOIT - OGIS, for use with the parcel data. This processing is performed as soon as is practical after the final statewide table is available. Usually the table containing the data for the previous calendar year becomes available in late spring or early summer. Generally there are some parcels for each county for which a MOD-IV record is not matchable. This is due mainly to temporal mis-matches between the data sets and to the way data are organized in MOD-IV (multiple-lot properties with one tax bill are listed only once). There also are errors in the parcel data, including a few duplicated and/or mis-constructed PAMS_PIN values. Detailed QA/QC information is available from the publisher.Normalization of the parcels data is done in concert with statewide municipal boundaries data, provided by NJOIT - OGIS, as the spatial framework within which to align the parcel data. The resulting, normalized parcels data accurately and correctly edgematch at and across most municipal boundaries. Improvements to the municipal boundaries data also are made during this process and are released occasionally as warranted.The county parcel datasets are available for download from the New Jersey Geographic Information Network (NJGIN) web site download page at https://njgin.state.nj.us/NJ_NJGINExplorer/DataDownloads.jsp. Also available separately are county-wide tables of property ownership and tax information extracted from the State of New Jersey Division of Taxation MOD-IV data base. A GIS_PIN has been constructed for each record in a manner consistent with the PAMS_PIN definition, in order to provide a join field. Please note cautions about performing this join; the attribute PIN_NODUP should be used.
