NJ Division of Taxation - Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
How do I check the status of my New Jersey income tax refund?

Currently there is no online inquiry system for income tax refunds. You can get information on the status of your income tax refund for the current year by calling the Automated Refund Inquiry System from a Touch-tone phone at: 1-800-323-4400 (within NJ, NY, PA, DE, and MD) or 609-826-4400 (anywhere). This service is available 7 days a week (hours may vary). You will need the social security number that was listed first on your return and the amount of the refund requested when making this call.

If you filed a paper return, information on the status of your refund will not be available for at least 6-8 weeks from the time the return was mailed. Paper returns are not logged in as they are received. Division of Taxation personnel cannot verify receipt of your return until processing has begun, and the return appears in our computer system.

The automated phone system can tell you if and when your refund was mailed and when you should receive it. The system also allows you to begin the procedure to trace a lost refund check. If you filed your return electronically and requested direct deposit for your refund, the system can tell you the date it was deposited into your bank account.

You can also perform an online search to determine if your refund check was returned to the Division of Taxation by the U.S. Postal Service because of an invalid mailing address. If you discover that your check was returned, you can submit a claim form online to have it reissued.

If you do not have access to a Touch-tone phone, or if you need information about the status of a prior-year refund, call the Customer Service Center at 609-292-6400 during normal business hours to speak to a Division of Taxation representative.

I manually computed my NJ 1040, since I do not like the way that Turbotax deals with NJ tax returns. Most years, I e-file my federal return and do a manual calculation of the NJ tax return.

That being said, I mailed my NJ1040 to Trenton on 2/22/11, and TODAY, I received my refund check in the mail.

While I am by no means an official source, I would be concerned if I had e-filed on 3/5/11 and had not yet received my direct depost refund. If you are near one of the state office buildings, you might want to stop in and ask a Treasury Dept employee if they can lend any insight into the situation.

Of course, if our esteemed governor needed to make yet another run to Krispy Kreme, he may have already spent your refund. It isn't easy to maintain your status as a morbidly obese person!

What does Turbotax do that you don't like? I use it so I'm curious as to what it does differently than a manual calculation.

Some years, it has not properly dealt with income from investments that are not taxed by the state.
This year, no matter what I did, I could not get it to accurately reflect pension income.
After a lot of failed attempts to manually override its misinformation, I just gave up and got a paper copy of the NJ 1040.

I always double-check my state taxes, as computed by Turbotax, with a manual version. Sometimes TT is accurate with state taxes, and sometimes it is not. This year was one of the "not" years, unfortunately.

By contrast, I have never had a problem with its calculation of my federal taxes. Go figure!

Angry they prob dont have the $

I filed electronically early April and I'm still getting the "currently being processed message". I did my 3 kids' taxes, one online and 2 manually, the day after I filed mine. All 3 kids got their refunds weeks ago!

I'm guessing NJ is sending refunds to those who make the least money first (and we don't make that much, but more than our kids). The only excuse for this would be NJ is holding on to OUR money as long as they can bc they have screwed up so badly - as we all know - that they CAN'T give all of us our refunds.

Has anyone who filed in May rec'd their refund? My son filed the same day, had a larger refund and rec'd it within 4 weeks. Mine is 'still processing'. Should be a simple, unless I didn't enter the info right on H&R.
