COVID-19 RELATED Information

Extension of due dates for Individual Gross Income Tax and Corporate Business Tax – In order to maintain consistency with the federal income tax extension, the Governor, Senate President and Assembly Speaker announced they will work to extend the due date to file and make payments for these taxes until July 15th. Please continue to check back at this website for updates and specific information as it becomes available.

Beginning on March 18th and continuing at least through April 17th, all walk-in services at Division of Taxation regional and Trenton offices will be closed to the public as a precaution to safeguard public health. We anticipate reopening on April 20th.

Our call center and email service is operating with reduced staff on a limited schedule Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., closed Fridays. As a result, you may experience significant wait times or delays in response to telephone inquiries, emails or general correspondence.

You can file for free through the New Jersey Online Income Tax Filing System, download Income Tax forms or make payments from this website.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We remain committed to continuing to provide the best service we can and we thank you for your patience.
