City of Wilmington seal

Wilmington taxpayers are getting a bit of a reprieve.

The city's finance office says property tax bills are being mailed late this year, so the payment due date has been extended by a month to September 30th.

Officials say a misprint on the bills by a third-party contractor - resulting in incorrect tax amounts on thousands of bills - is causing the delay.

Property owners normally get their bills in late July. The city is hoping the bills will get into the mail beginning next week.
