Important COVID-19 Information

  1. COVID-19 Related Tax Extension Information
    In order to safeguard public health, the State of New Jersey has temporarily suspended all non-essential services. To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Department of the Treasury has implemented the limited closure of a number of its offices that serve walk-in clientele, including all seven of the Division of Taxation’s regional information centers, the NJ Lottery’s walk-in claims desk, the Division of Pensions and Benefits’ Office of Client Service and in-service counseling, and the Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services’ Trenton office.

    These offices expect to be closed through at least July 3. Taxpayers, individuals, and businesses are still able to access these services online, over the phone, or through the mail during these limited closures. However, response times may be delayed due to limited staffing. We apologize for any inconvenience this may pose and ask for your continued patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation.

    Please visit the following Treasury division homepages for information on alternatives to in-person servicing:

    Check back here often for updates and announcements on re-openings.
  3. Information about the Federal Economic Impact Payment – Stimulus Check This payment is from the federal government.  The payments, also referred to by some as stimulus payments, are automatic for most taxpayers. No further action is needed by taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees.
    New Jersey cannot provide any information about the amount or when you may receive a payment.
