Delaware panel bumps up official revenue estimates

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware’s revenue forecast continues to brighten but officials warn that the state’s economy remains clouded in uncertainty.

The increases are due largely to higher estimates for personal income taxes, corporate income taxes and corporate franchise taxes, which are paid by companies incorporated in Delaware even if they don’t do business in the state.
