GEORGETOWN — Sussex County this month will begin issuing commercial valuation surveys to nearly 4,500 business properties throughout the county as part of the ongoing reassessment process. The surveys are for commercial property and business owners only, to provide important information about each parcel’s activities, which will then be used to help form a property’s overall value.
The surveys will be issued by mail, and should be returned to Sussex County by Oct. 31.
All properties are being evaluated and re-calculated based on current industry-accepted methodologies to produce new assessments that will reflect their true value in money, a requirement under Delaware law. Preliminary assessments are expected later in 2023.
