Sussex County Tax Bill Has Arrived
There are a number of reasons why I like living in Sussex County; one reason is the tax bill, which I recently received. First the taxes are low, based on 1974. Besides the one time tax credit we received this year which amounted to $9.01 reducing my real estate tax to $105.58. there is an an old fart (over 65) tax credit on your local school tax of 50%. Now the school tax is a killer as you seem to have little control over it. This year it was $967.53 for the Delmar school district and $72. 38 for Sussex Tech so I got $490.27 knocked off the tax for being old.
