    Besides DON'T!...


    Don't panic, just kidding, working in NJ is fine.


    My only suggestion is to be careful about what is and what's not subject to sales and use tax.

    The differences between states can be significant.


    Good luck!

    Hi Steve,

    Joe is right, the sales tax can be confusing.  For example, capital improvements are not taxable except for installing fire alarm and burglary systems.

    I am in NJ so feel free to reach out if you need anything!  My Company does great work if you need an electrical sub while out here.

    We are an out of state contractor working in New Jersey.  Just some basic comments that your company probably has already done.
    • Get a Registered Agent
    • Understand the disability plan requirements for NJ
    • Register with MY New Jersey - Their is a premier services link that you can access and pay all the payroll taxes.  (if you do them in house)

    Just some thoughts.  Hope your work in NJ is successful.

    ​Hi Steve,

    You didn't mention if your job was subject to prevailing wage.  If so, you should be aware that NJ DOL regulators are vigilant at making sure contractors are paying the correct wages and benefits.  Regarding benefits,  you need to understand how annualization works to determine the proper credit to take against the prevailing wage obligation.

    Please let me know if I can help you.
