New Jersey recently enacted P.L. 2022, c. 97 which excludes the installation of signs from the existing capital improvement sales tax exemption.

Sign installers must charge sales tax to their customers on the installation of all signs beginning October 1, 2022. However, the new law allows sign installers to purchase signs and materials for use in sign fabrication and installation exempt for resale.

The taxability of repair and maintenance services performed by sign installers has not changed; these services remain subject to tax.
