2017 REVALUATION UPDATE
The Town of Rye, NH has contracted with Municipal Resources to conduct a town wide statistical revaluation of properties effective April 1, 2017. MRI used the sale of properties from April 1, 2015 through March 31, 2017 as the starting point to establish new values. All qualified sales in this period were visited by MRI staff to ensure that the most accurate information is used in determining values. A drive by field review of all properties in town was completed to ensure accuracy and allow MRI staff to review the different neighborhoods for consistency as compared to the sale properties.
A letter was sent to all property owners containing the property’s newly established preliminary value. If desired, property owners may schedule an informal hearing to discuss the preliminary value. Information will be available so that property owners can verify the information on their property, compare their property to other comparable properties and ask questions about the revaluation process. Once the informal hearings are complete, final values will be presented to the Board of Selectmen in late August for approval.
After the informal hearing process, if any property owner believes their assessment is incorrect and wishes to file for abatement, they shall first appeal to the local assessing officials in writing, by March 1st, following the notice of tax and not afterwards. The assessing office will have the necessary form which must be completed in full.
The purpose of the assessing function is to develop, through an annual appraisal process, equitable assessments for all properties within the Town. ~This assures that each taxpayer pays their fair share of the annual tax levy of the Town in accordance with State Statutes. ~Your assessing office strives to provide the best possible customer service. ~Information regarding: assessments, tax exemptions, tax credits, tax deferrals, current use assessments, conservation restriction assessments,
abatement requests, gravel and timber tax is available through this office.
