Deeds

The Assessment Office does not prepare deeds.  You need to retain an attorney to have a deed prepared or modified.  We cannot change, add or delete an owner's name from our records unless there is a recorded deed evidencing that change.

As a service to the taxpayers, the Town has made a diligent attempt to maintain and preserve deeds, some of which date back to the 1600’s.

Copies of deeds may be available and can be provided to the owner of the property ONLY for a fee of $.25 per page.  Please note that we may or may not have some of the older historic deeds.

For all others, copies of deeds may be obtained through:

Westchester County Clerk's Office
Land Records Division
110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
White Plains, NY 10601

(914) 995-3080

The County Clerk's website indicates:

To search for a land document, visit Westchester Records Online to determine whether the document you are searching for is recorded in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk.  If the document is recorded in our office and you wish to obtain a copy of it, you can pay a daily user fee to view it online, visit our office, or request a copy of the document  by mail.

What We Do

Please note that this office DOES NOT collect taxes.  Please contact the RECEIVER OF TAXES (914-939-3558) for taxes and tax billing information, including when taxes are due.   

The Assessor is the official who estimates the value of real property, which is converted into an assessment (one component in the calculation of real property taxes).  

It is the responsibility of the Assessor to maintain a fair and equitable assessment roll, the document which lists all properties and their assessments within an assessing district.  It also lists a property's exemption(s), if any.

The assessment office processes all exemption applications, including basic STAR (School Tax Relief), Enhanced STAR, Senior Citizen, Veterans, Persons with Disabilities, Non-Profits, Clergy, etc.  For more information, please see the Exemptions tab.

For more information about the job of the Assessor, please visit the NY State Department of Taxation and Finance's 11-minute YouTube video entitled, "The Job of an Assessor."  Their 4-minute video, "About Property Taxes and Assessments," provides a good overview of property taxes and assessments. (links below)

The current assessment roll is available for public review and can be found on the Town's Home Page, as well as in the Assessor's office.  Links to a copy of the current assessment roll can be found in the Assessment Rolls tab on these Assessor webpages.

Curbside Recycling Rules

Villages in the Town of Rye have “dual-stream recycling.” This means paper waste (paper, magazines, newspapers, boxes, etc.) must be placed separate from commingled waste (hard plastic containers, metal cans and foil, glass, and cartons).
