An assessment roll lists basic assessment information for every parcel in a municipality at a specific date. More detailed property information may be found in our online Parcel Data Search page.
Essentially the "roll" is a printed snapshot in time of the Town's assessment database. Before the electronic revolution, assessment rolls were printed in large books consisting of thousands of pages. Nowadays, assessment rolls are available on any municipality's home page in searchable .pdf format (see tips on searching the assessment roll).
The roll includes such basic information as parcel ID (section/block/lot), owner, property address, owner mailing address, assessed value, exemptions, and more. If you want to learn more about the specific entries in a sample assessment roll, please visit the NYS Department of Tax and Finance's sample excerpt from an assessment roll.
All assessing units publish tentative and final assessment rolls annually. In The Town of Rye, the tentative roll is published on June 1st every year. At that time, you can check your assessment, market value and related information, as well as review the assessments of other properties in the community.
Since the Town of Rye assesses at 100% of market value it is important that you check your assessment annually when the tentative roll is published on or about June 1st. Grievance Day is always the 3rd Tuesday in June.
Following publication of the TENTATIVE assessment roll, property owners have the opportunity to contest their assessments. Visit our "Is Your Assessment Fair?" page.
After making any necessary adjustments, the FINAL assessment roll is published on September 15th every year.
Each year, property tax bills are based on the information on the final assessment roll.
For specific information regarding tax bills, please contact the Town's Receiver of Taxes at 914-939-3558.

Tips on Searching the Assessment Roll
Depending on the browser you are using, you normally can search a .pdf document by clicking [Edit] and [Find]. In the find box type in part of an owner name (last name only is recommended) OR part of an address (street number plus first 4+ letters of street name).
The more information you put in the find box, the more restrictive the search, the less likely you will find what you are looking for. Do not include street, drive, circle, place, etc. in the street name.
IMPORTANT: For streets names preceded by north, south, east or west, be sure to include "N.", "S.", "E.", or "W." in front of the street name.
Streets with such directionals include:
N. Barry Avenue
N. Main Street
N. Regent Street
N. Ridge Street
N. Wagner Avenue
S. Barry Avenue
S. Main Street
S. Regent Street
S. Ridge Street
E. Boston Post Road
W. William Street
W. Glen Avenue
Reminder--when doing a search, "less is more."
