This memorandum is to remind you that the annual filing for state and local contractors required under New Jersey Chapter 271 (Form BE) is due March 30, 2015. In particular, as we have described in previous client alerts, this report must be filed if a business entity has received $50,000 or more in the aggregate during the 2014 calendar year through agreements or contracts with New Jersey state and local government entities.

If such a business entity has reportable contributions made by covered donors in 2014, these contributions, as well as details regarding the contracts, must be reported. If the business entity does not have reportable contributions, a statement must still be filed, though details regarding the contracts need not be reported.
