Business Endings

The following table lists the most common methods of dissolution, cancellation and withdrawal for each business entity type. It provides links to our Online Business Endings and Cancellation service, which encompasses the filings required to remove a business from the State’s tax and commercial registries.

If you wish to use our online service, be prepared to enter your filing credentials: 10 digit identification number; business type (LLC, LP, corporation, etc.); and the month and year your business was originally formed or authorized to do business in New Jersey. Be aware that in order to file, your business must be in good legal standing with the State (that is, not revoked or voided for noncompliance with State annual reporting or tax laws). The online filing system will check your business standing automatically after you enter your filing credentials.

If your business is a for-profit corporation with outstanding tax obligations, you will complete a tax clearance application as part of the filing process. There is a $25 fee for the application, which is in addition to the fee for dissolution or withdrawal. Please note that tax clearance can be a lengthy process and may take several months. If you have any questions concerning tax clearance or other tax issues, call the Division of Taxation at 609.292.6400.
