Information on Filing New Jersey Income Tax Returns

File Electronically

When you file your return electronically through NJ E-File or New Jersey Online Income Tax Filing, it's fast, efficient, and you can choose direct deposit for your refund!

Paper Returns

Resident Income Tax booklets and forms are mailed during the first week of January to most New Jersey households that previously filed paper returns. We no longer print or mail Nonresident Income Tax returns or instructions.

If you have not received your booklet by the second week in February, or if you do not expect to receive a booklet, you can request one by:

Phone – Call our automated phone line at 1-800-323-4400 (within NJ, NY, PA, DE and MD).

Email – Tell us your name, mailing address, the tax form and/or instructions, and tax year (e.g., 2023 Resident Income Tax booklet) that you need.

In Person – Visit the Regional Information Center nearest to you to pick up a copy of the forms and instructions. You must make an appointment as no walk-ins are allowed. Appointment times are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. See link above to schedule an appointment.

We will send one copy of a tax form to a person. Multiple copies will not be provided. Forms and instructions are available online and can be photocopied. Public sites, such as libraries and post offices, do not have paper copies of the tax forms and instructions
