Reminder: Failure to Comply with NJ Tax Requirements is Costly

Posted on Mon, 2015-09-07 22:04

Members who operate in New Jersey beware: a recent incident in which the state held a truck and trailer until the owner paid US$7,700 is a reminder that the state is actively seizing trucks that operate in NJ without paying the state Corporate Business Tax.

The tax is applied to all trucking companies making pickups or deliveries in NJ, whether or not they have a terminal in the US. Anyone operating in the state must ensure that their NJ taxes are paid or face a genuine risk of having their equipment impounded.

Members had an opportunity to comply with NJ tax requirements without penalty in late 2014/early 2015 thanks to the influence of the Canadian Trucking Alliance. For details, see the January 8, 2015, Bulletin article New Jersey CBT Tax Compliance Option – Deadline Extended.
