On June 11, 2010, Delaware passed legislation requiring the withholding of income tax on the sale or exchange of real estate by non-resident individuals or corporations. This tax will take effect on January 1, 2011.

Resident individuals and corporations are currently required to estimate, report, and pay the tax due on income, including gains recognized from the sale of real estate, in the quarter during which the sale occurs.

This Bill will require nonresident persons, corporations or pass-through entities that sell real estate owned in this State to declare and pay their estimate of the tax due on the gain recognized from the sale before the deed will be recorded.

The Bill does not apply to estates or to entities classified as a trust for federal income tax purposes, but does apply to the members, beneficiaries or grantors of entities disregarded for federal income tax purposes. This Bill will facilitate the reporting and collection of the tax, and the administration of the tax code. (Click here to view notice.)



No additional information has been made available aside from the legislation at this time.
