More Tax Bills

Our fine legislators have been very busy filing new bills over the last month and I have fallen woefully behind in profiling them, so I am combining them by subject matter in order to catch up. The subjects are Crime, Environment, Marijuana, Elections, Republican Culture Wars, Education, Taxes, Labor, Economy, Insurance, Healthcare and Good Government. Yes, they have been busy.

Fourth up, Taxes.

House Bill 312 creates a Delaware personal income tax credit, not to exceed $500 per year per individual, for interest paid on student loans. It sounds like a good bill but it has mostly Republican sponsorship, which makes me suspicious. But Middletown Democratic Representative Rae Moore is a sponsor, so maybe this bill is not evil per se.

House Bill 312 SponsorsYes VotesNo Votes
Hensley, S.Moore, Collins, Gray, Ramone, D.Short, M.Smith, Yearick
Current Status: House Revenue & Finance 3/3/22

House Bill 284 increases the aggregate amount of Neighborhood Assistance Tax Credits that can be approved in any 1 fiscal year from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000.

House Bill 284 SponsorsYes VotesNo Votes

Poore, Brown, Hansen, Townsend

Senate Bill 248 excludes structures used for agricultural, horticultural, or forest use from valuation, assessment, and taxation of property.

Current Status: Senate Executive 3/23/22

House Bill 358 decreases by 1% the rate of realty transfer tax to be received by the State, thereby returning to the rate that was applicable prior to August 1, 2017. This will be effective for documents recorded after July 1, 2022. The sponsorship below reveals a true bipartisan bill with leadership in the sponsorship ranks, so this bill will likely pass.

House Bill 358 SponsorsYes VotesNo Votes
Bush, Griffith, Bolden, Dorsey Walker, Longhurst, Lynn, Moore, Osienski, Ramone, Briggs King, Dukes, Gray, Hensley, Postles, D.Short, M.Smith, Spiegelman, Yearick
Walsh, Mantzavinos, Sturgeon, Brown, Hansen, Hocker, Bonini, Pettyjohn, Richardson, Wilson

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.
