New Jersey CBT Returns Extended from Oct. 15 to Nov. 16
Updated Oct. 14: The CBT due date is has been extended from Oct. 15, 2020, to Nov. 16, 2020, by an executive order signed by Governor Murphy.  

The New Jersey Division of Taxation provided the following update on Sept. 25, 2020:

2019 Corporation Business Tax calendar year returns being filed under extension have the same return due date as the federal return, Oct. 15, 2020. Some filers receive an extension to file their federal return and need slightly more time to file their New Jersey return. In that case, we will waive the late filing penalty if the return is filed no later than Nov. 16, 2020. 

The same courtesy extends to 2019 fiscal year filers who have an extended fiscal year federal return. For example, a tax return with an extended due date of Nov. 16, 2020, can be filed no later than Dec. 15, 2020. 

Interest and penalties for late payment(s) of tax may still apply if payments were not made on time.
