DOVER, Del. (AP) - House lawmakers have approved proposed changes to Delaware's corporate income tax system to eliminate disincentives for multistate firms to hire workers and invest in property in the state.
The legislation, supported by Gov. Jack Markell, was approved Thursday on a 36-to-2 vote and sent to the Senate.
The bill revises a formula that equally factors the Delaware-based percentages of a company's total payroll, property and sales in calculating the state income tax due.
