To participate in MeF, companies that are new to New Jersey must submit a completed Letter of Intent (LOI) to e-GovServices@treas.nj.gov.

If the results are acceptable, we will grant the company permission to submit returns. Testing is open all year, except when the IRS’ scheduled shutdown/cutover begins (refer to the IRS Modernized e-File status page).

The Division processes electronically-submitted forms WR-30 (Employer Report of Wages Paid) and NJ-927/NJ-927W/NJ-927H (Employer's Combined Withholding and Insurance Contribution returns).

New for Tax Year 2020

  • Beginning with Tax Year 2020, New Jersey is implementing mandatory electronic filing for all employer year-end filings and statements.
  • Form 1099-NEC: Your submission to New Jersey will differ from your submission to the IRS. All fields and data will be the same except for the addition of State Income Tax Withheld on your submission to New Jersey, which will appear in positions 723-734. For State Income Tax Withheld, the payment amount must be right justified and unused positions must be zero-filled. If reporting no State Income Tax Withheld please zero fill.

Insurers and employers may file these returns through the Division’s Secure Electronic Bulk Filing option. If you already have credentials to use the option for WR-30 and/or NJ-927 purposes, you can use them to log into the filing service and submit these health-care related forms. If you do not have Secure Electronic Bulk Filing credentials or need technical specifications, contact us by emailing e-GovServices@treas.nj.gov.

We accept the federal XML Schemas, which the IRS provides by tax year.

For tax year 2019, we will accept 1095A, 1094-B, 1094-C, 1095-B, and 1095-C.

If the federal government discontinues, substantially alters, or makes unavailable Forms 1095-A, 1094-B, 1094-C, 1095-B, or 1095-C, New Jersey will deploy similar forms and require they be sent to the State and to New Jersey taxpayers.
