Sample Property Tax Report for a Sussex County, DE property

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 Sussex 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 $7,900
Improvement value + $37,400
Market value = $45,300
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 all assessment rates are set at 50% of the market value.

Land assessed value $3,950
Improvement assessed value + $18,700
Assessed value = $22,650
Exemptions And Taxable Value

The State of Delaware provides taxpayers two types of exemptions to assist disabled and residents over 65, which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property, therefore the taxable value is equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding tax rates applicable to it and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.

Tax description Assessed value Tax rate Tax amount
Sussex County $22,650 * 0.3983% = $90.21
School $22,650 * 2.7430% = $621.29
Sussex Technical High School $22,650 * 0.2599% = $58.87
Library $22,650 * 0.0467% = $10.58
Property tax $22,650 * 3.4479% = $780.95
