Learn About the 2023 Reassessment

📣📣📣 Every three years, communities across the State are required to perform property revaluations in order to set the most accurate and equitable tax rate possible. 

Newport’s 2023 update is a statistical revaluation which relies on sales data from the previous year and is meant reflect the market value of each property as of Dec. 31, 2023, with final assessments taking into account things such as general market appreciation and any improvements made to individual properties since the City’s last revaluation.

Since Rhode Island General Law states that the tax levy cannot increase more than 4 percent from year to year, and because the City’s budget process is still several months away, property owners 🔴 should not use the existing tax rate to estimate their future bills. 🔴
