Some New Castle County Residents Sent Property Tax Bills by Mistake

On July 23, it came to the New Castle County (NCCo) Office of Finance’s attention that approximately 51,000 bills were mailed to citizens in error.

The NCCo Office of Finance is working with its vendor to identify all affected individuals so that a letter can be sent explaining the error and that there is no need for them to remit payment because their mortgage company will remit on their behalf. 

If you are unsure if you escrow your property taxes or would like more information, please contact the Treasury Department at (302) 395-5340.
