The 2018 New Jersey Tax Amnesty will provide an opportunity for eligible taxpayers to file and pay their past due taxes with reduced interest and no penalties. Eligible periods cover State tax liabilities for tax returns due on or after February 1, 2009 through September 1, 2017. Some restrictions apply. The program may not begin until after November 1, 2018 and will end by January 15, 2019. Exact dates are to be determined.
If you do not take advantage of the Amnesty an additional 5% non-abatable penalty is imposed on any eligible debts not resolved during the Amnesty period.
