NJ WebFile Eligibility

NJ WebFile does not have an income threshold limitation for tax year 2013. Most taxpayers will be able to use NJ WebFile if they were residents of New Jersey for the entire year. New Jersey residents who claim a credit for taxes paid to another jurisdiction on income received from sources outside the State may also be able to use NJ WebFile. The Division of Taxation does not require these taxpayers to submit a copy of their out-of-State income tax return when they file their New Jersey return.
