GEORGETOWN, Del.- The deadline for Sussex County property owners to pay their 2014 taxes is only a couple weeks away.

Sussex County reminds property owners that Tuesday, Sept. 30, is the deadline to pay annual county tax bills.

Payments can be made in person, online, by phone, or by mail. Officials said any payments mailed must be postmarked no later than Sept. 30. Payments made Oct. 1 or later will be subject to penalty, according to officials.

In August, the county's billing office issued tax bills for the 2015 fiscal year, totaling an estimated $117 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.

Officials said that this year's tax bills once again feature an easier-to-read format, unveiled in 2013, to help taxpayers better understand their bills and payment options. A tutorial explaining how to view account information and make payments is available on the county's website, at http://www.sussexcountyde.gov/property-tax-portal-tutorial.
