It’s the annual final roll edition! And a great opportunity to wish you all a Happy Fourth from ORPTS! (Has a ring doesn’t it?)

Many thanks to Rowan Greaves, one of our newest employees at ORPTS, for this graphic!

The work is never done

Whew! Your final roll is filed (or very soon to be). But let’s not forget the provisions of good old RPTL 1590. You have ten days from the publication of the roll to:

  • transmit your final roll to ORPTS, and
  • post the roll online and provide a link from your municipality’s homepage. If your city or town doesn’t have a website, you must arrange to have it posted on the county’s website

No biggie! You’re pros; you’ve got this!. But a final roll filing without an ORPTS reminder would be like a Fourth of the July without the fireworks… Wouldn’t it?!?!?

Speaking of more work

Everybody’s favorite July milestone – the Final Roll Corrections Report (Report #7) – will be coming out later in July. Hopefully, your report will be free of any additional changes. But if it isn’t, rest assured, the RPTL directs you to make changes to the final roll based on our reports – even after the final roll is published.

You can expect Report #7 to be available for your municipality around July 21 or roughly 20 days after we receive your roll file.
