Online PR News – 05-February-2020 – Livingston, NJ – Michael H. Karu, CPA/CFF, Member, Levine, Jacobs & Company, LLC., was highlighted on NJMoneyHelp.com where he answered the question “I have been a resident of Florida for the past 16 years and have just sold a two-family family house in New Jersey. Do I need to file anything other than an A3128 for a refund? We did make a substantial profit. What should I expect?”

“Unless the house was used solely as a personal residence and falls within the guidelines for the sale of a personal residence — which is unlikely given that you’ve lived in Florida for 16 years — you should expect a tax bill,” Karu stated.

He elaborates further, “In order for the State of New Jersey to be sure that it gets paid taxes are withheld at closing. While people call it an ‘exit tax,’ the reality is that the payment is simply an estimated tax payment against the tax that gets calculated when the non-resident income tax return is filed.”
