I know there are several threads to this end on here - I have read them all and am still in need of some assistance.

I am an owner of a mulit-member LLC that was established this past year in the state of NJ. We have zero income and zero expenses.

Do we need to file state taxes with NJ? There is a $225 fee per member on the NJ tax form, so it is a really big deal if we need to file. I am struggling to figure this out and your help is very much greatly appreciated.

Thank you

  • I would almost certainly think so; who would they know you had no income if you don't file? In VT it doesn't matter if you make money or not, you still pay at least $250 in income tax (even if you had not income for the year). – Andy Feb 19 '15 at 20:40

According to the NJ Division of Taxation, every partnership "that has income from sources in the State of New Jersey, or has a New Jersey resident partner" must file.

So it sounds like if you have any partners who live in New Jersey you have to file.

  • But we don't have any income from the LLC – blast00 Feb 21 '15 at 21:29
  • Yeah but the instructions say "OR has a NJ resident partner" so it seems like if EITHER of those are true, you have to file. – Joel Spolsky Feb 21 '15 at 22:01
  • just dissolve the llc. You don't need an llc to have a business. – Pavan Katepalli Apr 14 '15 at 5:23
  • NJ is gross for charging this. – Pavan Katepalli Apr 14 '15 at 5:41
