New NJ Tax Legislation is Pro-Business - Changes Multistate Allocation Factor; Allows Netting of Gains and Losses of Certain Types of Business Income


While the New Jersey headlines last week trumpeted a new deal intended to save the troubled Xanadu project in the Meadowlands, the governor also signed two pro-business tax bills that may be even more exciting for New Jersey business owners.

New Jersey previously relied on a weighted average of three factors -- property, sales and payroll – which tended to penalize businesses with property and payroll in New Jersey but little in the way of New Jersey sales. The new method of calculating New Jersey source income – based on New Jersey sales only – is phased in over three years, beginning in January 2012.
