What is the Delaware Earned Income Credit and how has it changed?

If you were able to claim the federal Earned Income Credit, then you also qualify for the Delaware Earned Income Credit. Beginning in 2021, you can receive some of the credit back as a refund even if you don't have any tax due.

You'll receive either a refundable credit equal to 4.5% of the federal credit or a nonrefundable credit of up to 20% of the federal credit. Usually you'll get whichever is more beneficial to you.
