Assessments

Assessments for various state funds have been authorized by the NJ legislature. Assessments fund programs that are not covered by the quarterly contributions. The assessments are not penalties and are not the result of an error. The same assessment rates apply to all employers. Some employers are not subject to all seven assessments. The party responsible for payment of assessments is the employer.

Combined Assessment bills for the calendar year have a mailing date in June/July and payment must be received by the due date on the bill.

Payroll Tax Services generally do not pay these assessments for their clients. 2018 Assessments were mailed to employers, with a due date of August 7, 2019.
