Effective March 1, 2000, the New Jersey Legislature created a Sales and Use Tax Review Commission to evaluate and report on proposed legislation that would either expand or contract the base of the New Jersey Sales and Use Tax Law. Thus, for example, if legislation is proposed that would create a new exemption from sales tax, the Commission would be required to review it and report its conclusions to the Legislature.
The Commission is to consist of 10 members-the State Treasurer, three persons from the Executive Branch appointed by the Governor, two persons appointed by the President of the Senate, two persons appointed by the Speaker of the General Assembly and two persons appointed from the general public by the Governor. The staff of the Division of Taxation will assist the Commission in the performance of its duties.
