Amnesty Alert: MEDIA COMPANIES Voluntary Disclosure Initiative in NEW JERSEY

New Jersey’s Division of Taxation recently announced a voluntary disclosure initiative directed to media and media content companies beginning on August 15, 2011 and ending on November 15, 2011.

Several of the program details include:

  • A look back period will be limited to four years. This includes the current period and the previous three years.
  • All late filing penalties will be waived. A five percent amnesty penalty will be assessed for amnesty eligible periods; i.e., returns due on or after January 1, 2002 and prior to February 1, 2009.
  • The amount of receipts earned by licensing intangible property cannot exceed ten percent of total gross receipts.
  • Discretionary apportionment relief from “throwout” allocation may be granted on a case-by-case review.
  • Within 90 days of execution of its VDA, the taxpayer should file its New Jersey Corporation Business Tax Returns for the disclosure period and remit the taxes due.
  • Interest will be paid within 30 days of assessment.
