Important Announcement regarding Credit Card Convenience Fees

Effective July 1, 2015, credit card payments will be subject to a convenience fee for several online legal business filing services offered by the Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services.  These online services include Standing Certificates, Annual Reports and Business Reinstatements, Business Endings, and Amended Certificates of Incorporation.   The services will continue to offer an electronic payment option that does not include a convenience fee.  For additional information regarding these services, please contact DORES’s Business Tax Hotline at 609-292-9292.

Businesses that fail to file annual reports for two consecutive years may have their charter voided or authority to do business in New Jersey revoked. Similarly, corporations that fail to file corporation business taxes may be voided or revoked.

Should your business be revoked, voided or on the inactive list, you may reinstate it through the online reinstatement service which begins with the annual report filing. To enter the online system, you will need your corporation identification number and the month and year the business entity was originally formed or authorized to do business in New Jersey.

All business types EXCEPT for-profit corporations will be able to complete the entire reinstatement process online. If your business is a for-profit corporation, you will be able to submit delinquent annual reports and reinstatement forms and fees online. Since all profit corporations must obtain a tax clearance certificate before reinstating, an application and instructions for requesting a tax clearance certificate will also be provided in the online session. You will be notified of the reinstatement after the Division of Taxation issues the required tax clearance certificate.

If you have any questions regarding the reinstatement process, you may call 609.292.9292 for assistance.
