Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that under NJ law, failure to pay cigarette tax is considered tax evasion and there is no statute of limitations in NJ for tax evasion, as there is no limitation for evasion in other states as well. I have had clients who have been hit with cigarette tax for buying cigarettes online 10-12 years ago and had to negotiate down the fines and interest to make it more reasonable for them to settle the matter.
