On Wednesday, September 14, 2011, Governor Christie signed into law amendments to the New Jersey Bulk Sale Law. Enacted as chapter 124 of the Public Laws of 2011, these amendments narrow the scope of N.J.S.A. 54:50-38, signed into law on June 28, 2007 by Governor Corzine, by exempting the sale, transfer or assignment of single- and two-family homes and of seasonal rental property from the bulk sale notification requirements.

The 2007 law expanded the scope of the 1966 New Jersey Sales and Use Tax Act which set forth bulk sale notification requirements designed to provide the N.J. Division of Taxation with notice of asset sales for the purpose of collecting any outstanding tax liabilities owed by a seller. The 1966 law did not, however, apply to commercial real estate transactions unless the transaction was part of the sale of business assets which included real estate, e.g., the sale of an existing hotel business.
