Many companies do business in both New York and New Jersey, but crossing state lines for business purposes can also blur the distinction regarding which state’s tax laws apply. In some instances, both states may try to collect taxes on one business activity, subjecting business owners and even individuals to unfair double taxation.
Whether you are facing a conflict between states regarding your business interests or personal income taxes, one of our experienced New York and New Jersey tax attorneys with the Kridel Law Group can help you protect your assets and limit your liability to only what is fair under the law.
What types of interstate tax conflicts may arise?
Our Firm’s experienced tax attorneys have seen many types of tax conflicts between New Jersey and New York. Some of the most common issues stem from conflict in determining which state has the authority to issue payroll taxes, sales taxes, income taxes, capital gains taxes, and excise taxes, and under what circumstances such taxes are assessed.
Overall, corporate income tax is the most common tax levied upon out-of-state companies and, therefore, is one of the most common conflicts that arise for companies who do business in both New York and New Jersey.
