New Jersey Extends Certain Tax Filings due April 15, 2020.

On April 14, 2019, Governor Murphy signed P.L.2020, c.___ (A3918) extending to July 15, 2020 the deadline for Gross Income Tax (GIT) and Corporation Business Tax (CBT) filings and payment ordinarily due April 15, 2020. The new law aligns New Jersey with the new federal deadline announced late last month.

The new law also extends to July 15 the deadline for quarterly GIT and CBT payments ordinarily due April 15. Second quarter installment payments remain due on June 15.

Taxpayers will not be subject to penalties or interest if the taxpayer files a return, report, or makes a payment by the end of the extension.

The new law does not extend the time for filing returns due under any other state tax or local taxes, including real property taxes. All other tax filing deadlines are unchanged.

Provisions governing the payment of interest for overpayments are extended for six months after the conclusion of the state of emergency declared by the Governor under Executive Order No. 103 of 2020, or any extension thereof, or within six months after the return is filed, whichever is later. The new law extends the statute of limitations to assess taxes by 90 days following the conclusion of the state of emergency.

Additionally, the new law extends State Fiscal Year 2020 to from June 30, 2020 to September 30, 2020. The new law also requires the State Treasurer to report by May 22, 2020 on the financial condition of the budget for Fiscal Years 2020 and 2021 and requires the Governor to submit a revised budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2021 by August 25, 2020.

The Division’s Due Dates page lists all returns and updated due dates.

Due to the delayed design of 2019 CBT returns (Forms CBT-100, CBT-100U, BFC-1, BFC-1-F, and CBT-100S), taxpayers with accounting periods ending between July 31, 2019, and November 30, 2019, were granted an automatic extension to file their tax returns by April 15, 2020. The new laws extension does not apply to these returns. A taxpayer will not be charged late filing penalties if these returns are filed by the April 15, 2020, extended due date. The extension applies only to filing the return and did not extend the time to make all required payments.
