How do I know if I am required to file an income tax return in New Jersey? 

According to the New Jersey Division of Taxation, the requirements for filing a New Jersey state tax return are as follows: You must file a tax return if you are 1) single, married, or are a civil union partner who is filing a separate return and your gross income for the entire year was more than $10,000, or 2) if you are married or a civil union couple, filing a head of household joint return, a qualifying widow (er), or surviving civil union partner whose gross income for the entire year was more than $20,000. If the income level is below $10,000, and the individual had New Jersey income tax withheld, paid New Jersey estimated taxes, or if they are eligible for a New Jersey earned income tax credit or other credit, they should file a tax return to receive a refund. The age of the taxpayer is irrelevant when considering whether a person must file a tax return. Minors, students, senior citizens, and part-year residents alike must file tax returns if they meet the income filing requirements. If you have additional questions regarding filing a tax return in New Jersey, consult with an experienced New Jersey tax crime defense attorney at The Law Offices of Michele Finizio.

Reviews Matter

“First class representation. Michele was my son’s attorney after he made a slight but bad decision that hurt no one, but one that potentially could have a caused a lifetime of employment problems in the future, despite having a four year college degree. First of all Michele was very proactive in protecting his rights. Rights we were not even aware of. She provided quick and reliable answers to our questions. Before we met with her our anxiety and worry was insatiable. The peace we felt after our first consultation alleviated all that and we knew we picked the right attorney. Her excellent negotiation skills resulted in a settling his case quickly and without conviction.

We owe a debt of gratitude for her service. I was shocked at how much she was able to do for my son. She is a solid lawyer who is honest and works to insure the best possible outcome for her client is achieved.”
