There are no state or local sales taxes in Delaware and as such, sales tax exemption certificates are not applicable to Delaware. Delaware imposes license and gross receipt taxes on the sale of most goods and services. These fees are imposed on the seller or service provider and may not be passed on to the consumer. Sales for resale are not exempt. There are a limited number of exemptions from these fees and taxes. Please view Tax Tips to find out if your business is exempt.
