Town of Rye Launches Reassessment Project

Rye Brook, Port Chester and Rye Neck Homeowners and Commercial Property Owners will soon be receiving a mailer from the Town of Rye in connection with the Town's recently announced Town wide reassessment (also known as a "reval" or revaluation). This initiative will culminate in new assessments for all properties for the 2020 Town assessment roll, which will affect 2021 property taxes.
