  Highlighted Changes to the MDRR Regulations  
     
  Mandatory On-Line Filing  
  Effective August 18, 2008, N.J.A.C. 13:10-2.4, which sets forth the requirements to which property owners subject to the Multiple Dwelling Reporting Rule must adhere, was amended to require all owners to file the annual MDRR report online at the Division on Civil Rights’ website: www.NJCivilRights.org. Previously, the regulation permitted filing either by mail or electronically. The mail and fax options have now been eliminated, by regulation. Therefore, all property owners subject to the rule must now e-file on the DCR website.

The late filing fee increases to $250.00 for all property owners who file after March 1st, and to $500.00 for all property owners who file after March 31st. Those property owners who file after April 30th are subject to a penalty in an amount designated by the Director of the Division on Civil Rights. See N.J.A.C. 13:10-2.7.
