On April 14, 2020 Governor Murphy signed into law the "COVID-19 Fiscal Mitigation Act" (P.L. 2020, c.19) that automatically extends the tax filing and payment due date to July 15, 2020. Individual Gross Income Tax calendar year filers now have until July 15 to file and pay their taxes, including estimated tax payments due on April 15. Penalties and interest will not be imposed on the balance of tax due between the original due date and the extended due date for returns and/or payments submitted by July 15, 2020.
Fiscal year filers must file their returns by the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of the fiscal year. If a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, that return is due on the following business day.
