New Jersey Filing Due Date: Corporation tax returns are due by April 15 — or by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the taxable year (for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with New Jersey Tax Extension: New Jersey offers a 6-month extension of time to file corporation returns, which moves the filing deadline to October 15 (for calendar year filers).
New Jersey Tax Extension Form: To apply for a business extension, file New Jersey Form CBT-200-T by the original deadline of your return.
New Jersey Extension Payment Requirement: An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. If you owe New Jersey tax, it must be paid by the original due date to avoid penalties and interest. You can make a tentative tax payment with Form CBT-200-T, or you can pay electronically via NJ Online Services for Businesses: www1.state.nj.us/TYTR_BusinessFilings
New Jersey Tax Extension Tip: You are required to file Form CBT-200-T to request a New Jersey extension even if you electronically paid your tentative tax.
