Here for the Holidays – New Jersey’s Tax Amnesty Program

As a welcome end-of-year present for those with overdue taxes, New Jersey recently launched its tax amnesty program, which began on November 15, 2018 and will end on January 15, 2019.

The program offers a waiver of some penalties, Referral Cost Recovery Fees, or cost of collection fees and one-half of the balance of the interest that remains due as of November 1, 2018. My Gibbons colleagues, Peter J. Ulrich and Todd M. Kellert, wrote an article on the Tax Amnesty Program, which you can find here. If you have any questions, please contact us since the program is quickly coming to a close.
