New Jersey Division of Taxation’s 2014 Tax Resolution Initiative – Not To Be Confused With An Amnesty

By and on October 30, 2014

The New Jersey Division of Taxation (Division) is trying to help taxpayers resolve unpaid tax liabilities for tax periods 2005 through 2013.  Through November 17, 2014, the Division is offering taxpayers that pay all tax and interest for the applicable periods a waiver of most penalties (but not penalties related to the 2009 amnesty) and any costs of collection or recovery fees.  Notably, this is not an amnesty like those conducted in 2002 and 2009.  It is not statutorily mandated and no penalties may be imposed for non‑participation.  Because the initiative is not statutorily mandated, the Division is not offering something it could not offer at any other time.  However, the Division’s offer to waive most penalties may be a good chance for many taxpayers to resolve issue and move on and is worth considering.
