Personal Income Tax

Delaware imposes a graduated income tax with a rate that varies with income level. Tax forms are due each year by April 15. The amount of tax varies depending upon the taxpayer’s filing status, deductions, and exemptions. Delaware allows credit for income taxes paid to other states, subject to certain limitations.

Sales And Use Tax

Delaware does not impose a state or local sales tax. However, it does impose a gross receipts tax on the seller of goods (tangible or otherwise) or provider of services.

Pennsylvania imposes a 6 percent tax on the retail sale, consumption, and the rental or use of specific items. Major items exempt from sales tax include retail food purchases, most wearing apparel, drugs, textbooks, resale merchandise, and residential heating fuels. Local jurisdictions may increase this rate by approximately 1 percent. Use Tax is due on items that were purchased outside of Pennsylvania without sales tax such as catalog orders for computers, sports equipment, or formal clothing.


Property Tax

Delaware does not impose a state real property tax, although local taxing jurisdictions can include the county, the school district and vocational school district, and the municipality. For information on specific property, contact:
