New Castle County would like to remind residents that county property taxes and state of Delaware school taxes are due on Sept. 30.
By law, any balance that remains on accounts as of Oct. 1 will be subject to a six percent penalty, and a one percent penalty each month thereafter. New Castle County property taxes and state school taxes are combined into one billing statement. State school tax rates are set by the local school districts; New Castle County simply collects the taxes and passes them on to the state.
Cash, check, money order, Discover Card, and PIN debit card payments are accepted at the New Castle County Government Center, 87 Reads Way, New Castle. The payment window is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. On Sept. 27, and Sept. 30, the payment window will remain open until 6 p.m.
