Per the instructions the State of New Jersey provides to software developers, the program pulls state wages from all of the taxpayer's Forms W-2 Wage and Tax Statement for Line 15 of New Jersey Form NJ-1040. Per the New Jersey instructions for individuals, this figure may need to be adjusted for Forms W-2 received from employment outside New Jersey in order to reflect New Jersey tax law.

To make this adjustment in the TaxAct program:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click State to expand, then click New Jersey (or NJ). On smaller devices, click in the upper left-hand corner, then click State.
  2. Click Wage Adjustment in the New Jersey Quick Q&A Topics menu to access the screen where the adjustment can be made - enter this as a negative number.

Note. Instructions are provided on the screen and additional instructions are available from New Jersey if you click Form Instructions.

Note that any link in the information above is updated each year automatically and will take you to the most recent version of the document at the time it is accessed.
