New Jersey Department of Taxes has revised a publication discussing the sales tax implications of virtual currency.

The revised publication states that New Jersey considers convertible virtual currency such as bitcoin to be intangible personal property. However, sales tax applies when the currency is transferred for taxable goods or services. If a seller accepts the currency as payment, it must calculate the fair market value in dollars and charge tax on the underlying transaction. Sellers that accept this currency are required to register for sales tax purposes and to collect and remit tax.

The publication also discusses the tax implications of convertible virtual currency in relation to the Corporation Business Tax and the Gross Income Tax.
