Taxation

To help improve the State's business climate and promote job creation in a bipartisan fashion, Governor Christie implemented $2.35 billion in targeted tax reform and enhanced incentives over five years, including:

  • Adopting a phased-in single sales factor formula for the corporate business tax
  • Promoting a fairer tax code with the Business Income, Loss Netting and Loss Carry Forward Relief
  • Ending the corporate business tax surcharge
  • Increasing the R&D tax credit to 100% of corporate tax liability
  • Enacting a 2% property tax cap
  • Reducing the minimum business tax for S-Corporations by 25%

In addition, we established a bipartisan Red Tape Review Commission (RTRC) to eliminate unnecessary regulatory hurdles. Thanks to the RTRC, we have revised New Jersey's Limited Liability Company Act.
