NEW CASTLE COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE

The New Castle County Department of Finance was created in 1965 when the whole of county government was reorganized. This new agency assumed duties that were previously the responsibilities of the Board of Assessment, the Receiver of Taxes, and the County Treasurer. The new department was responsible for the assessment, collection, and enforcement of collection of capitation taxes and all other taxes levied at anytime, as well as the recordation of all such activities. In addition to taxation responsibilities the department collects all fees for licenses and permits, maintains the county treasurer, and provides information pertaining to the financial affairs of the county.

Two advisory boards work with this department: the Advisory Retirement Board, which reviews applications for retirement system benefits, and Board of Assessment Review, which handles problems arising from tax assessments.
