RPSV4 update now available

RPSV4 users can now log into the Online Assessment Community to download and run RPS2020_5101.exe

This update:

  • provides the 2024 version of Forms RP-467 and 467-Rnw;
  • enables users to run totals reports and tax rolls for the newly added 41638 exemption code (fire districts that have opted into exemption for volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers); and
  • aligns the functionality of the 467 and 459-c income entry screens with the new law.

Note regarding the 467 and 459-c income entry screens: In light of the new income options available to taxing jurisdictions, you will be required to enter the property owner’s income for each taxing jurisdiction (county, municipality, school district, and village) in these screens. If one or more of the taxing jurisdictions does not offer the exemption, enter the property owner’s base income amount for the exemption in the field. Do not leave the field blank.

For details on the changes to eligibility for the senior citizens and disability exemptions, see the new and aptly named section of the assessor-director landing page.

Q. Will the RP-459-c forms be updated in RPSV4?

A. No. Those forms have not historically been included in RPSV4. However, you can use RPSV4 to create mailing labels. Here are brief instructions for the RPSV4 Utility Label Report.

Report #10: NYS Tax Return Deceased Report

The NYS Tax Return Deceased Report (Report #10) is now available in the Online Assessment Community to assessors and county directors. In prior years, only county directors could access the report. However, a law change enacted in 2022 granted access to the report for assessors as well.

The report lists property owners who:

  • are receiving or registered for a STAR benefit, and
  • were reported as deceased on a recent New York State income tax return.

This report is for your information; you are not required to take action based on the report. If you choose to use the information in this report, before making any changes to your files, you may wish to cross reference it against local information on the Internet or other sources.

If you come across a property owner that is erroneously listed in the report (that is, they’re not deceased), it is almost certainly due to information mistakenly reported on an income tax return. You can notify us at, and we will update the report when it is next published.

Report #11: STAR Credit Issued Report 

The STAR Credit Issued Report is available for all municipalities where school taxes are due by the end of September. The report lists all recipients of 2023 STAR credit checks through mid-November. It indicates whether the check was for the Basic or Enhanced STAR credit; it does not include dollar amounts.

This report is for your information; you are not required to take action based on the report.
