We derive the differential identities for isomonodromic tau functions, describing their monodromy dependence.

For Painlev\'e equations we obtain them from the relation of tau function to classical action which is a consequence of quasihomogeneity of corresponding Hamiltonians.

We use these identities to solve the connection problem for generic solution of Painlev\'e-III(D8) equation, and homogeneous Painlev\'e-II equation.

We formulate conjectures on Hamiltonian and symplectic structure of general iso\-mo\-no\-dro\-mic deformations we obtained during our studies and check them for Painlev\'e equations.
