Christina Quinones, NJ Division of Taxation Office of the Taxpayer Advocate 

Christina started with the Division in 2007 in the Customer Service Call

Center. During her 8 years in the Division's Customer Service Center, she gained a vast knowledge of all taxes and programs administered by the Division. She assisted not only the taxpayers of New Jersey during her time in the Customer Service Center but also the practitioners and business community through the Practitioner Hotline. Christina joined Taxation University in 2015 where she became a strong part of our employee training program and continued to assist the practitioners and business communities by providing valuable tax information through seminars and education. In April 2020, Christina moved to the Office of Legislative Analysis to assist in navigating the legislation that impacts the Division. As of the spring of 2023, Christina is the newest addition to the Office of the Taxpayer Advocate.


Christina has served on various projects over the course of her career including the planning and implementation of the Division's first-ever New Hire Boot Camp training program in 2017, the Integrated Tax System training plan implementation, and most recently the ANCHOR Program advertising and outreach campaign.


Christina's tax knowledge, customer service experience, and project management skill set is a strong asset to the Division of Taxation.


Christina is a loving mother of three and an avid baker.
