Update: Governor Christie Retains New Jersey/Pennsylvania Reciprocal Income Tax Agreement
CohnReznick LLP

Last month, we reported on Governor Chris Christie's intent to end the reciprocal income tax agreement with Pennsylvania, saying that New Jersey needed additional tax dollars that would come from ending the agreement to fill a budget gap. As it turns out, the Governor has reversed his decision to unilaterally end the state's income tax agreement with Pennsylvania at the end of 2016. Pursuant to the reciprocity agreement, either state can withdraw by providing 120 days' written notice prior to January 1 of the tax year.
Currently, Pennsylvania residents who receive compensation from New Jersey sources are not subject to New Jersey income tax on those earnings. Conversely, New Jersey residents who receive compensation from Pennsylvania sources do not pay Pennsylvania income tax on those earnings.  Under the agreement, a New Jersey resident who works in Pennsylvania only files a New Jersey return and a Pennsylvania resident working in New Jersey only files a Pennsylvania return.

CCSNJ members gathered for a night of networking, drinks and delight at the Annual Meeting & Holiday Party on Dec. 8. Held at Ramblewood Country Club in Mt. Laurel, CCSNJ leadership honored its outgoing Board Chairwoman, Angela Snyder, and incoming Chairman, George D. Sowa. CCSNJ also presented the Campbell Soup Company Extraordinary Leadership Award to Toni Pergolin, MHA, CPA. 

On Dec. 13, CCSNJ held a Health Issues Committee meeting featuring Susan A. Feeney, Esq., a partner at McCarter & English Attorneys at Law. Feeney shared some of her expertise in litigating property tax appeals for hospitals, assisted living facilities and nursing homes: a prominent issue for many New Jersey healthcare entities.  

New Jersey State Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney addressed more than 150 CCSNJ members at a Meet the Policymakers event Dec. 16. The Senate President, who was instrumental in the Governor's recent decision to reinstate the Income Tax Reciprocity Agreement, was warmly welcomed by members at Adelphia Restaurant as a segue to the holiday season.

"Be Memorable at Any Networking Event"
Networking is not the same as selling.  Most people try to sell as soon as they get inside the event. To be a great networker, you don't have to be a brilliant conversationalist or fast-talking salesperson.  Networking events are meant as a starting point for relationship building. If you can't be yourself, you will be starting off on the wrong foot. Most people don't like the hard sell. Instead, they prefer to work with people they like and trust.

I believe that there are two things to focus on for newer networkers: getting involved and making an impression.

Full-service global healthcare staffing and recruiting for direct hire, per diem, travel, long-term contract and temp-to-hire medical personnel.
