Hurricane Maria Victims Granted New Jersey Extension of Filing and Payment Deadlines

Trenton New Jersey has granted an extension of filing and payment deadlines for business and individual taxpayers affected by Hurricane Maria. We permitted similar extensions to victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The new filing deadline is January 31, 2018, for businesses and individuals located in the disaster areas,* those whose records are stored in the disaster areas,* and relief workers.

The deadline extension applies to Sales Tax, Corporation Business Tax, Gross Income Tax, and certain other taxes that have certain filing and payment deadlines that fall between:

  • Sept. 16, 2017, and Jan. 31, 2018 (for taxpayers in U.S. Virgin Islands – Islands of St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas);
  • Sept. 17, 2017, and Jan. 31, 2018 (for taxpayers in any of the 78 municipalities in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico).

For individual tax filers, this includes quarterly estimated payments due Jan. 16, 2018. It also includes 2016 Income Tax returns that received a tax-filing extension until Oct. 16, 2017. However, because tax payments related to these 2016 returns were originally due on April 18, 2017, these payments will be considered late and are subject to penalties and interest.

For business tax filers, the deadline applies to quarterly Employer Withholding (Payroll) Tax returns due Oct. 30, 2017, and quarterly Petroleum Products Gross Receipt Tax returns due Oct. 25, 2017.

New Jersey is following federal Internal Revenue Service guidelines on deadline extensions. If the IRS changes its deadline, New Jersey expects to revise its requirements as well.

Please continue to monitor this website for additional information about how to identify your returns and payments when filing and paying under this extension.
