Horray for New Castle Co. for publishing the names of people and companies who are behind in their property takes.
Even before the names were published, work got out, and several paid before the names were released.
Sussex County does post delinquent names on their web site, but that doesn’t work. When the names are published in the newspaper it works best. If you know your neighbor knows you are a dead beat, well it works.
The next step is to take delinquents to court. School districts are owed millions in Sussex County, money they desperately need without burdening those who pay their fair share of taxes.
The county’s offer payment schedules for those having difficulty paying their taxes. I can accept some people go through difficult times, but the bulk of back taxes ae from those large companies who can afford to pay.
