Businesses that do not sell taxable goods or services or lease taxable property to others are considered “nonsellers” and
are not required to file sales and use tax returns (Forms ST-50/51) on a quarterly/monthly basis. Although nonsellers do not
collect sales tax, they may still need to pay use tax. A business incurs use tax if it purchases taxable property or services
without payment of sales tax, or pays tax at a rate less than New Jersey’s rate of 7%. Nonseller businesses whose average
annual use tax for the last three calendar years is $2,000 or less may file an Annual Business Use Tax Return (Form ST-18B)
to report and pay any use tax that is due instead of filing Forms ST-50/51.
According to our records, this business is registered as a nonseller and may be eligible to use Form ST-18B. If your
average annual use tax for 2012, 2013, and 2014 is $2,000 or less, complete the form below to report any use tax due on
business purchases made from January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015. Form ST-18B is due on or before May 1, 2016.
You are not required to file an ST-18B for any calendar year in which you do not owe any use tax.
If your business sells taxable goods or services or leases taxable property to others, or if your average annual use tax
liability for the last three calendar years was more than $2,000, you may not file Form ST-18B. You must change your
business registration to include sales tax eligibility and must begin to file quarterly/monthly sales and use tax returns. To add
sales tax eligibility visit the Division of Revenue’s New Jersey Business Gateway Registry Services at: Changes can be made through the Online Registration Change Service or by completing
and mailing Form REG-C-L.
Remember, do not use Form ST-18B for 2015 if:
• Your business sells taxable goods or services or leases taxable property to others, or
• Your average annual use tax for 2012, 2013, and 2014 is more than $2,000, or
• You do not owe use tax for 2015.

in another state was less than 7%, the difference is due to New Jersey.
