Office of Taxpayer Communication

The Office of Taxpayer Communications (OTC) manages the Division’s public-facing communications content. It directs the creation of forms, instructions, schedules and worksheets as well as content for public and internal web pages, social media platforms, and publications. OTC’s strategic goal is to make it easy to understand and comply with New Jersey tax laws and regulations by ensuring all stakeholders have access to necessary information.

The Disclosure Office is responsible for ensuring the Division complies with confidentiality statutes of the State of New Jersey and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to protect State and federal tax information. The office:
  • Oversees the Division’s tracking, storing, and securing of data, both in the physical offices and with the Garden State Network to conform with federal standards;
  • Provides training to employees and contractors, conducts internal inspections, and updates policies and processes to protect sensitive data; and
  • Works with the IRS, other New Jersey State Agencies, and out-of-State agencies to facilitate and review the exchange of tax data for administrative and enforcement purposes.

The Disclosure Officer and staff are the point of receipt for OPRA (Open Public Records Act) requests by reviewing, researching, and preparing the Division’s responses.

OPRA requests that include taxpayer information require the completion of an Appointment of Taxpayer Representative Form (M-5008-R).
