The New Jersey
Division of Taxation is taking a number of steps to help financially distressed taxpayers meet their tax obligations. The Division wants to be certain that struggling taxpayers are aware of the available options.
If You or Your Business Owe Taxes
With many individuals and businesses facing financial difficulties, the Division is ready to help those who owe back taxes. We recognize that we must balance our responsibility to enforce the tax laws with the economic realities and hardships facing New Jersey businesses and individuals.
Division employees have flexibility to work with struggling taxpayers to assist them with their particular situations. Depending on the circumstances, taxpayers may be able to establish a payment plan for back taxes, adjust the payment terms and avoid defaulting on an existing payment agreement, or qualify for waiver of penalties.
Taxpayers who are behind on their tax payments and need assistance should contact the phone number listed on the bill or correspondence they received from the Division. There could be additional help available if they are facing unusual hardship situations.
