HB 393

TAXES

New! Introduced 4/28/22.

This bill is aimed at helping working, low-income Delawareans. HB 393 seeks to create a low-income tax credit. The proposal would allow Delaware residents earning less than $35,000 annually to claim a non-refundable tax credit of $280 against their income tax bills. This would be a one-time benefit, applying solely to the 2022 calendar year.

HB 256

TAXES

In the face of 2 consecutive years of huge budget surpluses, the Dems want to raise taxes.  This Act adjusts the existing tax brackets and the tax rate for each bracket, combining some existing brackets and creating 2 new brackets. The 2 new brackets are taxed at the highest rates, but by combining some existing brackets, this Act also slightly increases or decreases the tax rate for some incomes. NOW:  Taxable income in excess of $60,000:  6.6%.  PROPOSED:  Beginning with 2021:  $60,000 - $125,000:  6.6%; above $125,000 - $250,000:  6.75%; above $250,000:  6.95%
