New Jersey Earned Income Tax Credit

We envision building a New Jersey where everyone can afford life's basic needs.

NJEITC is a cash-back tax credit that puts money back into the pockets of working families and individuals, including the self-employed, who earn low to moderate income.

Almost 25% of eligible New Jerseyans never apply for NJEITC. Don't shortchange yourself. You worked for it, now get it.

New for Tax Year 2021:

For Tax Year 2021 tax filings (beginning in January 2022), eligibility for the NJEITC will be further expanded to those 65 and older without dependents and to those as young as 18, which is projected to help another 90,000 residents.
