How to Pay


You may pay your New Jersey income taxes or make a payment of estimated tax by check or money order, electronic check (e-check), or credit card.

Electronic Check (e-check). Pay your taxes or make estimated payments by e-check on the Division's website. If you do not have Internet access, you can make an e-check payment by contacting the Division's Customer Service Center (609-292-6400) or by visiting a Regional Office. Do not send in the payment voucher if you pay by e-check.

You will need your social security number and date of birth to make an e-check payment. The social security number you enter must match the first social security number shown on the form related to your payment, and the date of birth you enter must be the date of birth for that person.

If you do not enter your social security number and date of birth properly, you will not be able to pay by e-check. If you are filing a New Jersey return for the first time, or your filing status is different than the filing status on last year's return, you may not be able to pay by e-check. NOTE: E-check payments made using an account that is funded from a financial institution outside the United States will not be accepted.

Check or Money Order. Complete the appropriate payment voucher (Form NJ-1040-V, NJ-1040NR-V, or NJ-1040-ES). Enter your social security number and the amount of your payment in the boxes on the voucher. Also enter your name and address if you are not using a preprinted voucher. Make your check or money order payable to "State of New Jersey - TGI." Write your social security number on the check or money order. For a joint return, include both social security numbers. NOTE: Do not use the preprinted vouchers you may have received if you filed a joint return last year and this year you are filing your return using only your own social security number or you are filing a joint return with a different person.

Send your payment for the balance due on your return (Form NJ-1040 or Form NJ-1040NR) with the payment voucher in the same envelope with your tax return. For calendar year filers, payments due with 2015 returns must be made (postmarked) by April 18, 2016, to avoid penalty and interest charges.

If you are paying the balance due on your New Jersey income tax return and are also making a payment of estimated tax for 2016, use separate checks or money orders for each payment. Send your 2016 estimated tax payment with an NJ-1040-ES voucher to the address on that payment voucher. Do not include the estimated tax payment with your income tax return.

Credit Card (Fees Apply*). Pay online or by phone (1-888-673-7694) using a Visa, American Express, MasterCard, or Discover credit card. You can also pay by credit card by contacting the Division’s Customer Service Center (609-292-6400) or by visiting a Regional Office. Do not send in the payment voucher if you pay your taxes by credit card. *The fee is added to your actual payment.

You will need your social security number and date of birth to make a credit card payment. The social security number you enter must match the first social security number shown on the form related to your payment, and the date of birth you enter must be the date of birth for that person.
