Like many other states, Delaware bases tax assessment for individual income tax on the resident’s federal adjusted gross income. There are three different methods -joint, combined, or combination of the two- states can use to tax residents on their income. Delaware opts for a combination of the two systems, allowing married taxpayers the chance to choose how to file, so they can reap the best benefit from their return. Delaware residents can either combine their income together and have it taxed as a single unit, or they can keep their income separate which will lower their tax rates. Residents should use the method which offers the biggest tax savings.
