Businesses still reeling from Hurricane Sandy now have until Nov. 14 to file their taxes, after Gov. Chris Christie agreed to extended the deadline for affected businesses.
State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff ordered the Division of Taxation to grant hardship waivers to late filer on a case-by-case basis to business impacted by the storm. “It’s clear that the businesses hit hardest by the storm need further relief in the face of continued adversity, in the Nor’easter that blanked New jersey with snow on Nov. 7,” the treasurer said. “Treasury’s goal is to reduce regulatory stress so that New Jersey businesses can focus all their energies on rebuilding.”
The new deadline applies to taxpayers who were to a file returns, reports or related payment on or after Oct. 30 and 31. For answers to additional questions about tax relief for victims of Sandy, taxpayers should call 609-292-6400.
