Sussex Co. Property Tax Bills Due September 30th

Posted: Updated:

SUSSEX CO., Del. - Sussex County is reminding property owners that September 30th is the deadline to pay for annual county property tax bills.

Payments can be made in person, online or sent by mail, but must be postmarked no later than September 30th. Payments made after October 1st will be subject to a 1.5 percent penalty. In August, the county's billing office issued tax bills for the 2014 fiscal year, totaling an estimated $112.8 million in revenue. The bills include county property taxes, as well as fees for county sewer and water, tax ditches and street lighting, where applicable. Additionally, tax bills include local school district taxes, which are collected by the county, but forwarded to the state. Delaware law requires Sussex County to bill property owners for school taxes on behalf of the eight public school districts within the county. For more information, check out the county's website.
