Due to precautionary measures related to COVID-19, the Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services is operating with reduced staffing. This will result in delays in processing work requests for various paper-based business registry transactions delivered over the counter to 33 West State Street or via mail to any of our post office boxes. The delays will affect requests for filing paper business formation and amendment documents and fulfilling orders for various paper-based certifications/reports such as business status reports, records requests and standing certificates, as well as Apostille certificates. In addition, paper returns and checks, in particular those that cannot be processed through our automated systems, may be delayed. During the emergency period, we will not be able to track the status of individual work requests.
We recommend that the general public and business community use our electronic filing and information services, including our tax filing and payment applications, in place of paper-based work whenever possible. Review the links to the many online services we offer on this web site and on the Division of Taxation’s site.
Please additionally note that our walk-in service area at our Trenton office (33 West State Street, 5th Floor) remains closed to the public until at least April 17th and upon further notice. However, our secure drop box at the Trenton office is available for the submission of paper filings and records requests only.
Our call center is operating with reduced staff and is open Monday through Thursday, closed Friday. You may experience significant wait times or delays in responses to telephone inquiries, emails or general correspondence.
Individuals and business representatives are encouraged to use the following avenues as alternatives for the time being:
Please check back here for updates and announcements on reopenings.
Enrollment with the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Program allows you to make recurring electronic tax payments – for example, recurring payments for sales and use tax, quarterly withholding taxes including unemployment/disability, and corporate business taxes. Business representatives, payroll companies, tax software firms and tax service providers may find the program to be especially advantageous.
Effective July 1, 2004 under P.L. 2004, c. 52, taxpayers with a prior year's liability of $10,000 or more in any one tax are required to remit payments for all taxes electronically using the EFT Program. The Division annually notifies those taxpayers that have crossed the threshold in any one tax of their required participation. The notification includes program information and documents to be completed. Detailed payment instructions are mailed after receipt and processing of the enrollment documents.
Pursuant to the Energy Tax Reform Legislation, (PL 1997, c. 162), all vendors of gas and electricity are required to remit particular taxes electronically without regard to any other regulations governing the electronic payment of taxes.
Methods of Payment and Registration
There are two EFT methods: Automated Clearing House (ACH) Debit and ACH Credit. Fed Wires or other wire transfers are not acceptable methods of EFT payments. In order to register as an EFT payer, your business must be registered with the Division and you must have a PIN for your business. The Division of Taxation issues PINs to registered businesses. If you need to obtain a PIN for your business, call the Division of Taxation at 609-292-6400.
Note: Be aware that bank holidays may affect posting times of EFT payments.
