County and School property tax bills can be paid by mail using the return envelope that comes with the bills, or in person at the Government Center, 87 Reads Way, in New Castle. Residents can also pay with a credit card.

Paymentus can be reached by calling 1-877-225-7351
Does my bill have to be paid in total by the due date?
Yes. Any balance that remains on your account as of the following business day (for the 2018 – 2019 tax cycle, that is October 1, 2018), will be subject to an initial 6% penalty for County line items and 5% for School line items, and a 1% penalty each month thereafter on all line items.
How does the assessment relate to the value of the property?
Your bill will only have the due date of August 31, if your account has a delinquent balance. This “Due Date”, is the date by which any delinquent balance (shown in the “Prior Balance” fields) and any penalty (shown in the “Penalty” fields) must be paid in order to avoid further penalty. The 2018 – 2019 taxes (shown in the “Total Current Tax” fields) don’t need to be paid by August 31; they can be paid without penalty by October 1
