New Jersey – Cooperative Interstate Tax Program

SALT Report 1762 -The New Jersey Division of Taxation reminds taxpayers that the New Jersey/New York Cooperative Interstate Tax Program ended on December 31, 2010.  Since that date, any returns or payments received by the Division have been forwarded to the New York Department of Taxation on behalf of the taxpayer.

However, effective September 1, 2012 any interstate returns or payments that include New York sales tax will no longer be sent to New York.  Instead, the sales tax payments for New York will be applied to New Jersey sales tax accounts.

Taxpayers who mistakenly submit an interstate return or payment with New York tax after September 1, 2012 must apply for a sales tax refund using the claim for refund form.
