My agent told me that property tax in Ossining is very high, since it hat underwent a reassessment. Can anyone tell me how high they are?

The property tax rates are located here https://www.townofossining.com/cms/t...ates-2018/file. You should be able to calculate the potential tax obligation but remember this table does not reflect school tax's.

I found the school tax rate it's located here https://www.townofossining.com/cms/s...tax-rates/file

Reassessments don't affect whether or not property taxes are "high". I am sure your agent believes them to be high, and there may have been a recent reassessment, but that later does not cause the former. All a reassessment does is adjust the assessed value of each property to ensure that each property is paying their fair share of the total tax. It doesn't increase taxes overall, nor does it make taxes "high" or "low".

No one can tell you how "high" a tax is. To figure out what the property tax will be on a certain property, you will need to find out its assessed value, and then multiply it by the multiplier provided in the links above, making sure to know whether the property is in a village or not. Then you will need to do the same for the school taxes, and village taxes (if applicable). This will get you a raw dollar amount. Whether or not this is "high" is a matter of opinion. To get a general idea, you can find houses with the same MARKET value in nearby Towns and run the numbers for these properties to get an idea of how the taxes compare.
