Division of Taxation

COVID-19 RELATED Information

Extension of due dates for Individual Gross Income Tax and Corporation 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.

Payment Plans

If you cannot pay your taxes in full, or you are having difficulty reimbursing the State for overpayment of Homestead Benefit or Senior Freeze benefits, a payment plan can help. Read the guidelines below to see if you qualify, and then select the appropriate Payment Plan Request Form.

Please be advised that the Division of Taxation uses a Paper Check Conversion Process (PCC) which is a procedure for converting checks into electronic fund transfers or E-Checks. When you mail a completed, signed check for tax related payments or fees, the information from your check may be converted to an electronic payment. You will not receive your original check back from your financial institution. For security reasons we will destroy your original check, but we will keep a copy for record keeping purposes. By presenting your completed and signed check to us you authorize the conversion of your check into an electronic transaction.

Minimum amount due for the State to accept a payment plan:

  • For all taxes other than Cigarette Taxes, you must owe $500 or more to request a plan. If you have a debt of less than $500 please see Payment Plan – Answers.
  • For Cigarette Taxes, you can request a payment plan for any unpaid amount.
  • For Homestead Benefit and Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) repayments, you can request a payment plan for any amount you owe.
