Sussex County will now charge a flat fee of $1 for online tax bill payments, effective immediately.
Taxpayers previously paid a surcharge as high as 2.5 percent. County officials believe electronic payments are more convenient for taxpayers than mailing a check or visiting an office.
According to the treasury division, more than 4,000 customers used the online payment method last year.
