Delaware's income tax rates were last changed three years prior to 2015 for tax year 2012, and the tax brackets were previously changed in 2009.

Delaware has six marginal tax brackets, ranging from 2.2% (the lowest Delaware tax bracket) to 6.6% (the highest Delaware tax bracket). Each marginal rate only applies to earnings within the applicable marginal tax bracket , which are the same in Delaware for single filers and couples filing jointly.

The Federal Income Tax, by contrast, has different tax brackets for Single, Married Filing Jointly, and Head of Household taxpayers.

How do Delaware tax brackets work?

Technically, you don't have just one "tax bracket" - you pay all of the Delaware marginal tax rates from the lowest tax bracket to the tax bracket in which you earned your last dollar. For comparison purposes, however, your Delaware tax bracket is the tax bracket in which your last earned dollar in any given tax period falls.

You can think of the bracketed income tax as a flat amount for all of the money you earned up to your highest tax bracket, plus a marginal percentage of any amount you earned over that. The chart below breaks down the Delaware tax brackets using this model:

For earnings between $2,000.00 and $5,000.00, you'll pay 2.2%
For earnings between $5,000.00 and $10,000.00, you'll pay 3.9% plus $66.00
For earnings between $10,000.00 and $20,000.00, you'll pay 4.8% plus $261.00
For earnings between $20,000.00 and $25,000.00, you'll pay 5.2% plus $741.00
For earnings between $25,000.00 and $60,000.00, you'll pay 5.55% plus $1,001.00
For earnings over $60,000.00, you'll pay 6.6% plus $2,943.50
For earnings between $2,000.00 and $5,000.00, you'll pay 2.2%
For earnings between $5,000.00 and $10,000.00, you'll pay 3.9% plus $66.00
For earnings between $10,000.00 and $20,000.00, you'll pay 4.8% plus $261.00
For earnings between $20,000.00 and $25,000.00, you'll pay 5.2% plus $741.00
For earnings between $25,000.00 and $60,000.00, you'll pay 5.55% plus $1,001.00
For earnings over $60,000.00, you'll pay 6.6% plus $2,943.50
