Provisions to Effectuate Remote Notary Act Released

A new emergency law signed by Governor Murphy (P.L. 2020, c.26) allows notaries and authorized officials to execute remote notarial acts during the current public health emergency. That law permits Treasury to append provisions to the New Jersey Notary Public Manual as necessary to implement the law. These provisions are in an appendix to the Manual.

The Streamlined Business Reinstatement and Dissolution Filing Site will be Available Starting March 1, 2020

COVID-19 Related Closures

Due to precautionary measures related to COVID-19, the Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services is operating with reduced staffing. This will result in delays in processing work requests for various paper-based business registry transactions delivered over the counter to 33 West State Street or via mail to any of our post office boxes. The delays will affect requests for filing paper business formation and amendment documents and fulfilling orders for various paper-based certifications/reports such as business status reports, records requests and standing certificates, as well as Apostille certificates. In addition, paper returns and checks, in particular those that cannot be processed through our automated systems, may be delayed. During the emergency period, we will not be able to track the status of individual work requests.

We recommend that the general public and business community use our electronic filing and information services, including our tax filing and payment applications, in place of paper-based work whenever possible. Review the links to the many online services we offer on this web site and on the Division of Taxation’s site.

Please additionally note that our walk-in service area at our Trenton office (33 West State Street, 5th Floor) remains closed to the public until at least June 1st and upon further notice. However, our secure drop box at the Trenton office is available for the submission of paper filings and records requests only.

Our call center is operating with reduced staff and is open Monday through Thursday, closed Friday. You may experience significant wait times or delays in responses to telephone inquiries, emails or general correspondence.

Individuals and business representatives are encouraged to use the following avenues as alternatives for the time being:

  • General inquiries can be directed to the division’s online e-mail portal.
  • Inquiries can also be directed to the division’s Customer Service Center at: (609) 292-9292.
