States can choose three different methods to impose taxes on its residents: join, combined or a combination of the two. New Jersey taxes its residents under the joint system, which taxes married couples as one single household income. This is close to the way the federal tax system taxes a family as one single income.

New Jersey acknowledges civil unions and taxes them in the same manner as married couples; they have the option of filling joint or separate returns.

The tax payer’s gross income is used by the state of New Jersey to determine the tax base; there are a few differences between federal tax law and New Jersey state tax law.

Exemptions

Some income types are exempt from being included in gross state income tax:

  • U.S. Government Bonds Interest
  • Distributions from State Investment Funds that Qualify
  • New Jersey Capital Gains
  • Civil, public and private service pensions up to $15,000 ($20,000 Married Joint, $10,000 Married Single)
  • Military Pensions
  • Compensation from Unemployment
  • Social Security Benefits
  • Income from Disability
  • New Jersey Lottery winnings under $10,000
  • Medical expense over 2% of state gross income
  • Income from qualified state tuitions programs
  • Alimony payments
  • Conservation contributions

You cannot claim property tax or rent exemptions if you claim a credit for either of those. Earning from Coverdell education savings account and 401(I) contributions are taxed.

Deductions

New Jersey does not have a standard state deduction; tax payers also cannot take itemized deductions.
