Due to the large number of different jurisdictions that could be paired with a New Jersey return, the taxpayer must determine the amounts for Lines 1 and 9 of New Jersey Schedule NJ-COJ. These amounts (income properly taxed by both New Jersey and other jurisdiction during the tax year and an actual tax paid to other jurisdiction) are not automatically transferred to Schedule NJ-COJ from any other form or entry in the program.. There are too many jurisdictions that could be paired with the New Jersey return for the program to calculate these amounts.

To enter these amounts:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop) click State. On smaller devices, click the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner, then choose State.
  2. Click the New Jersey under the expanded State menu. 
  3. Click New Jersey - Credit for taxes paid to other jurisdictions.

For help determining the amounts to enter, see the instructions for NJ-1040 Line 42, page 32. The amount will depend on which "other jurisdiction" you are working with (there are 42 other states that could be paired with the New Jersey return).

The amount of actual tax paid to the other jurisdiction is calculated on the tax return for that jurisdiction.
