HIT BY THE NJ EXIT TAX FOR SELLING REAL ESTATE? RECOVER YOUR MONEY QUICKLY

If you’re a non-resident selling investment real estate in New Jersey, there’s a unique NJ tax you should be aware of. Both residents and non-residents always had to pay income tax on the gain upon the sale of real estate. This tax is required to be withheld for non-residents.  The “Exit Tax”, which came into law six years ago, requires the seller to file a GIT/REP form (Gross Income Tax form) in order to record a Deed for the transfer of his property. When a non-resident sells the property, New Jersey will withhold this income tax in the amount of either 8.97 percent of the profit or 2 percent of the total selling price, whichever is higher. Therefore, even if the property is sold at a loss, tax must be withheld to fulfill the two percent requirement.

Often, especially in the case of real estate sold by an estate, some if not all of the withholding can be recovered. To find out how, click here: How to Recover Your Money
