(Camden, NJ) – The state tax filing and corporation business tax filing deadline have been extended from April 15 to July 15 to allow New Jerseyans time to focus on their safety and livelihood during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The extension was announced in a joint statement by Governor Phil Murphy, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin Wednesday morning.

“This extra time is crucial for the health and safety of Camden County in many ways,” Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “As the original deadlines neared, residents and business owners would have had to put themselves at risk to compile and submit the necessary information. This extension enables our county to do what’s most important at this time, and that’s to stay home and fully focus on flattening the curve.”

In addition to the tax filing extension, the state fiscal year will be extended through Sept. 30 to provide state lawmakers and administrators the ability to navigate New Jersey through this crisis.
