By New Jersey state law, every non-profit in the state must register or re-register its tax exempt status with the municipality where it is located every three years – with the filing due November 1st. This includes all local churches. Obviously, every church is on a different time cycle depending when it first registered. The first form to be used is called “Initial Statement of Tax-Exempt Status” and the every 3 year follow up form is call “Further Statement of Tax-exempt Status”.
Please confirm that your church is up-to-date with these filings.
