RPSV4 and Windows 11

Microsoft is in the process of deploying Windows 11 to individual computers. We’ve received some questions as to whether it’s compatible with RPSV4. We have tested RPSV4 on machines running Windows 11, and we have not encountered any issues. 

As always, if you encounter an issue with RPSV4, contact your ORPTS customer service team.

Reminder: Transmit your roll and post it online

You have ten days from the publication of the tentative roll to complete the following, both of which are required by RPTL 1590:

  • Transmit your tentative roll to ORPTS. Use the new Upload Files application in the Online Assessment Community (instructions).
  • 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.
