ArcGIS 10.2.1

I have a feature class of wetland mapping. It is a series of various polygons, all irregular shapes and sizes.

I also have a parcel boundary feature class that is basically even sized rectangular polygons.

I am trying to divide the wetland polygons into a "subset", where the polygons are "cut" by the boundaries of the parcels, that way I can get area estimates per parcel of how much wetlands each parcel has.

Try the identity tool. Wetland polygons as input layers and parcel boundaries as identity features. The tool requires an advanced license. The output feature class has the attributes of both inputs.
