Delaware Senate Approves Corporate Tax Hike, Estate Tax Repeal

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The state Senate has given final approval to a bill increasing taxes on corporations, a key part of Gov. John Carney's plan to balance a budget for the fiscal year starting July 1.

Under the legislation approved Thursday, maximum corporate franchise tax payments paid by many companies incorporated in Delaware will increase from $180,000 to $200,000. The legislation also creates a second-tier tax of $250,000 annually for the largest corporations.

Analysts say the bill will generate an additional $116 million annually in revenue.

Senators also gave final approval to a bill eliminating Delaware's estate tax, a move Republicans sought in return for supporting the corporate tax increases.

Democrats and Republicans have yet to agree on a mix of spending cuts and other proposed tax increases to nail down a budget.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
