NJ Income Tax – Estimated Payments

  • Home
  • NJ Income Tax – Estimated Payments
Estimated tax means the amount that you estimate to be your Income Tax for the tax year after subtracting withholdings and other credits.

Who Must File?
Whether you are a resident or a nonresident, you are required to make estimated tax payments if you estimate that you will owe more than $400. Failure to make timely estimated payments will result in interest charges on all underpayments.

Note: If you received a preprinted Declaration of Estimated Tax Booklet that you are not going to use, you do not need to notify the Division of Taxation.

When are the Payments Due?
For calendar year filers, your first installment must be submitted on or before April 18, 2017. If you are paying your estimated tax in four equal installments, additional payments must be made on or before June 15, 2017, September 15, 2017, and January 16, 2018.

Farmers and fiscal year filers, see the instructions for Form NJ-1040-ES for information on due dates.

How to File…

You can file your estimated tax online if you are paying electronically. Otherwise, you must file a Declaration of Estimated Tax Voucher ( Form NJ-1040-ES) with your payment. Make your check or money order payable to State of New Jersey – TGI. Regardless of how you file, the Social Security number you enter first should be the same one you enter first on your New Jersey Income Tax return.

Did you Sell or Transfer Real Property in New Jersey?

Nonresidents may be required to make estimated tax payments in connection with the sale or transfer of real property in New Jersey.

Don’t Want to Make Estimated Payments?

You can avoid making estimated payments by asking your employer to withhold more tax from your wages. To do this, complete Form NJ-W4 and give it to your employer. If you have pension income, file Form NJ-W-4P with the payer of the pension to have tax withheld. For more information, see Tax Topic Bulletin GIT-8, Estimating Income Taxes.

Have a Bill?
Estimated tax payments are not payments for outstanding tax liabilities. Information on starting a payment plan is available.
