Pursuant to Governor Cuomo's Executive order 202.22, and in collaboration with the County of Westchester, The Town of Rye is implementing two tax relief options, a HARDSHIP program and a NON-HARDSHIP program, that eliminate or reduce penalties for late payment. These programs apply only to the Town and County Taxes due on April 30, 2020.
The Chart below outlines the qualifications for each program.
If you do not qualify for a Hardship, and pay after April 30th, you will automatically qualify for the reduced rate, through July 15, 2020, no forms are needed.
If you need to take advantage of the Hardship Program, complete and sign the applicable Taxpayer Certification Form below and submit it to the Town of Rye Tax Receiver on or before July 15, 2020. For your convenience, we will accept the certification forms submitted by these methods:
Payment received after July 15, 2020 will be charged interest at the rate set by law, currently 5% through July 31, 2020 and 7% thereafter.
