Extension Request

If you are not able to file your New Jersey income tax return on time, you may apply for an extension of time to file. If all the requirements are satisfied, an extension of 6 months will be granted for filing Forms NJ-1040, NJ-1040NR, and NJ-1080C. 5-month extension of time will be granted for filing Form NJ-1041. However, extensions of time are granted only to file your tax return; there are no extensions of time to pay the tax due. Penalties and interest are imposed whenever tax is paid after the original due date. If you fail to satisfy any of the requirements, the extension request will be denied. The Division of Taxation will notify you only if we deny your extension request, but not until after your return is actually filed.

Were you (or your spouse/civil union partner) a member of the Armed Forces of the United States or a civilian providing support to the Armed Forces?
