School Tax Information
Rye City School District taxes are collected during the months of August and November. Those whose taxes are paid by their banks or mortgage companies will not receive a bill. Those who pay their taxes directly who have not received a bill by the first week of August or November should immediately call Lynn Ferguson, Assistant Tax Collector, at 967-6100, ext. 6276.
The address for mailing payments is printed on the reply envelope with your tax bill, and is also printed on the bill. When tax payments are mailed, they are sent to P.O.
