New Jersey: Tax Relief for Boardwalk Fire Victims
- Sales Tax News

First a super storm, then a devastating fire. Businesses in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights, New Jersey, were still recovering from Hurricane Sandy when fire consumed the Boardwalk. Indeed, there is evidence that damage from the 2012 hurricane may have fueled the fire.
If it seems like the Powers That Be have it out for certain New Jersey communities, at least there is also a guardian angel. Governor Chris Christie (R) has announced that New Jersey businesses impacted by the fire are eligible for tax relief. Affected businesses have until October 21, 2013, to remit returns and payments due in September.
The governor hopes the extra time allotted to businesses in the fire-damaged area "will help them get back on their feet and back in operation as quickly as possible." More than 50 businesses were damaged in the fire.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the communities of Seaside Park and Seaside Heights.
