New Jersey Follows Suit, Delays Tax Filing Deadline by 90 Days

April 1, 2020 - 2:02 PM
My colleague, Steve Asbel, previously reported that the federal and Pennsylvania tax filing and payment deadlines have been delayed by 90 days, making the new deadline to file and pay July 15, 2020. Today,  New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, along with Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, announced their agreement that New Jersey's state income tax filing deadline, as well as the corporation business tax filing deadline, will also be extended by 90 days, from April 15th to July 15th.
They also plan to extend the State’s fiscal year to September 30th (New Jersey’s fiscal year typically ends June 30th). 

The New Jersey Division of Taxation currently has posted a link to Governor Murphy’s site announcing the agreement which you can read here.
