State of New Jersey Tax Issues


M

Michael

For 2006 the amount claimed on my NJ1040 for Deductible Property Taxes
was disallowed (in part) my appeal rights were provided and I filed an
Appeal (noted by State as received on September 2; a December letter
said the Appeals Branch would get back to me --Conference Staff or
something like that).

Before I heard anything further on the 2006 Appeal, in November (after
Appeal was filed/received) and December the State (1) Billed me for
2006 (additional tax they said was owed on property tax issue); (2)
billed me for portion of Homestead Rebate paid to me in 2006 (3) said
they would turn over amount owed to IRS for Federal Offset program if
not paid (4) billed me for 2007, without any explanation of 2007
Appeal Rights (same issue, different year); and (5) deducted a portion
of my 2009 state refund without any explanation (they said an
explanation for 2009 refund deduction would follow, it has not).

I called the Appeals section, left a message about the absurdity if
not illegality of all of these actions BEFORE decision on 2006 tax
year appeal was reached, voice-mail message has not yet been returned
by Conference Staff person.

How do I stop the collateral damage (extending into 2007 and 2009 tax
years with no appeal option) and reverse the damage intended
(including the Federal Offset program) for the year/issue pending
decision (2006 tax year).

Everything is being done while decision/conference on Appeal is still
pending for 2006.

Thanks in advance.

You're not going to want to hear this, but the best thing I can
suggest is writing another letter to the address on the notice and cc'
it to Conferences and Appeals, restating the facts that you just
stated here. Both C&A and the Collections Divisions are badly
understaffed and overworked, and tend to ignore phone messages.
Alternatively, if enough taxes are involved here, get a professional
involved and see what they can do for you, as they may have some
contacts at either division.
