Assessment is based on 2008 market values.
The City of Seaford's taxes are assessed at 100% of appraised value and taxed at $.31 per $100 of assessed value.
The tax year runs from July 1st to June 30th and tax bills are due to be paid by August 31st.
After August 31st, a 1 ½% penalty will be assessed until paid.
Example #1: A customer owes a total of $191.31 and does not pay by the 5th: $21.95 Water, $44.30 Sewer, and $125.06 Electric. Penalty is assessed: $0.33 Water, $0.66 Sewer, and $1.88 Electric. The customer makes a payment of $191.31 on the 8th. The payment is applied to penalty first and then to the Water, Sewer, and Electric service balances. When the next bill is generated on the 10th, a previous balance of $0.33 Water, $0.66 Sewer, and $1.88 Electric is shown because the penalty has already been paid.
Example #2: A customer owes a total of $113.29 and does not pay by the 5th: $113.29 Electric. Penalty is assessed: $1.70 Electric. The customer does NOT make a payment. When the next bill is generated on the 10th, a previous balance of $113.29 Electric is shown and penalty of $1.70 is shown because no payment has been made.
To avoid any penalty being assessed, the customer must pay their bill in full anytime from receipt of the bill until 5 p.m. on the 5th of the month.
The City accepts the following forms of payment:
