The Limousine Association of New Jersey maintains a watchful eye in Trenton, safeguarding chauffeured transportation companies from being blindsided by legislation that would make operating in the Garden State unnecessarily difficult or expensive.

In our efforts to ensure that operators and suppliers doing business in New Jersey are treated fairly by legislators, enforcement officers and governing bodies, the association has been successful in resolving long-standing issues, including:

  • Repealing the sales and use tax on the purchase, lease, rental and repair parts of limousines.
    • The removal of this tax has saved chauffeured transportation operators thousands of dollars, enabling them to turn over and maintain their fleets more aggressively. In addition to clients enjoying newer and better-maintained vehicles as a result of this bill getting signed into law, the entire industry benefits from having raised standards of safety and service.
  • Spearheading the passing of New Jersey’s “Limo Law” expressly designed to improve safety in the state.
    • The law addresses important issues, such as maximum vehicle passenger capacities and insurance minimums.
  • Ensuring the chauffeured transportation is exempt from the workers compensation category that includes taxis, UPS and FedEx and, instead, has its own category.
    • LANJ also secured legislation that protects operators from having to pay workers compensation on gratuities — a major savings to operators.
