In 2012, the filing deadline is April 17, 2012, for calendar year taxpayers, the same day the Federal Form 1040 is due. The due date is April 17 instead of April 16 because of the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia.
Therefore, the Division has determined that the due date for filing of all New Jersey tax returns and payments that are normally due on April 15, 2012, will correspond with the Federal income tax due date of April 17, 2012. Any New Jersey tax form, instruction or publication that currently shows an “April 15, 2012” due date should now be read as “April 17, 2012.” This extension applies to deadlines for filing a return, making a payment or deposit, requesting an extension or filing a refund claim.
Inquiries regarding filing due dates may be directed to the Division of Taxation Call Center at (609) 292-6400.
