OVERVIEW OF DISSOLUTION REQUEST PROCESS
USING FORM C-159D
A corporation may be dissolved by the written consent of all its shareholders entitled to vote on the action. To effect such a dissolution, all shareholders shall sign and file in the Office of the Treasurer, Division of Revenue, the articles of dissolution set forth in form C-159D. A "Tax Clearance Certificate" must also be issued for domestic profit corporations.
To begin the dissolution filing process, corporations should submit a completed dissolution package containing all of the following to the New Jersey Division of Revenue, PO Box 308, Trenton, N.J. 08625, Attn: Business Liquidation:
•This form (completed C159-D)
•Payment for all fees - $120.00. Checks are payable to: Treasurer, State of New Jersey.
•Estimated final return (Form A-5052-TC) or final CBT return, with a separate payment for any taxes due
•Request for Tax Clearance Certificate (Form A-5088-TC). If applicable, the Division of Taxation will inform the corporation of any outstanding obligations not reflected on the final return. Any outstanding obligations must be satisfied before the Tax Clearance Certificate will be issued.
The dissolution shall be considered filed and effective as of the date the Division of Revenue receives the properly completed and executed articles of dissolution, payment for all fees, and notice of Tax Clearance from the Division of Taxation. If the filing is rejected for any reason, the date of dissolution will be the date all forms and payments are resubmitted and deemed complete.
However, all business tax eligibilities for the corporation will be ended as of the date the entire, properly completed request for dissolution listed above is received by the Division of Revenue. Prior tax liabilities will still apply and be subject to the Division of Taxation's review. Please note that if the corporation does not resolve prior tax liabilities due the Division of Taxation, a Tax Clearance Certificate will not be issued and business tax eligibilities may be reactivated as if there was no lapse in subjectivity.
