Frederick, a quick google search shows I can get a RA in New Jersey for $49/year. They basically DO NOTHING, but are often required. NJ isn’t the only state. Texas is another, BTW. I was able to get one in Texas for $39. There are some services that will act as RA in every state for a bit of a larger fee. I don’t have a lot of experience with that so I can’t recommend, but Chris Stout will be able to help you with that.
Welcome to “business friendly” New Jersey. This is just the tip of the sales tax nightmare in NJ. If you run a cash accounting business, they force you to pay taxes as though you’re accrual. That’s murder for any business offering terms because they require taxes be paid when invoiced (regardless of future non-payment). Oh, and good luck trying to get money back from NJ if you get a big refund. It’s a huge hassle. They do it on purpose. They are so greedy. Greedy and rude. Try finding a NJ bureaucrat who doesn’t despise the public. The next worst offender is California.
