New Jersey Earned Income Tax Credit (NJEITC)

We envision building a New Jersey where everyone can afford life's basic needs.

NJEITC is a cash-back tax credit that puts money back into the pockets of working families and individuals, including the self-employed, who earn low to moderate income.

Do not shortchange yourself. You worked for it, now get it.

Many NJEITC filers will receive their refund within our normal estimated processing times. However, some filers may receive notices requesting additional information. You must respond to the notice and provide the requested information or we will not be able to apply the credit.
