  • **2015 Property Tax Freeze Rebate Check**

    General Brown CSD taxpayers were eligible for a tax freeze rebate check in 2015 because the District met the following criteria:

    1) The tax levy increase for 2015-2016 was below the tax levy cap.

    2) The District submitted a Government Efficiency Plan, which detailed our operational efficiencies.

    If you have not received your rebate check yet, please call the NYS Office of Real Property at 1-518-453-8146
