In the State of Delaware, only real property is subject to taxation. Property tax is levied and collected by the local governments and used to fund local entities, such as counties, municipalities and school districts.

Market Value

The New Castle County Assessor establishes the appraised value or market value for all taxable real property within the county. Market value is defined as the price that a piece of property will bring in a fair voluntary sale between a willing seller and a willing buyer, with neither being under any duress to either buy or sell.

Land value $17,600
Building value + $72,200
Market value = $89,800
Assessed Value

Assessment is the foundation upon which taxing authorities determine the amounts of property taxes to be paid on a property. A property's assessment value is its market value multiplied by an assesment ratio. A "uniform" assessment rate is used, meaning that all properties, whether residential, commercial or industrial, are assessed at the same ratio. Currently in New Castle County, all assessment rates are set at 100% of the base year value. Assessment value reflects the market value of your property in 1983, the last time property values were assessed countywide. The current value of a property may be higher or lower.

Assessed value = $89,800
Exemptions And Taxable Value

New Castle County provides taxpayers several types of exemptions which may lower the property's tax bill.These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Assessed value $89,800
Exemption value - $32,000
Taxable value = $57,800
