SOLVEDby Intuit13Updated March 06, 2023

This article will help you report the New Jersey passthrough business alternative income tax (sometimes called PTE, PTET, or SALT workaround) and the resulting credit in ProSeries for non-fiscal filers.

For New Jersey fiscal filers see: Common questions about New Jersey fiscal returns in ProSeries.

To claim the credit on an individual return:

  1. Open Form NJ-BUS-1.
  2. Scroll down to Part II for partnerships, or Part III for S corporations.
  3. Enter the Share of Pass-Through Business Alternative Income Tax reported from the Schedule PTE-K1.

To generate the PTE for a partnership:

  1. Open the NJ Partnership Information Worksheet.
  2. Check the box for Entity is an electing PTE.
  3. Check the box indicating the Taxpayer has filed the election to pay the Pass-Through Business Alternative Income Tax. To file the election click here to access the NJ Portal.
  4. Click the QuickZoom to open form PTE-100.

The program will calculate the PTE-100 and generate a Schedule PTE-K-1 for the members.

If you are e-filing the state tax return the PTE-100 will not be e-filed with the state return automatically. To include the PTE forms, on the Partnership Information Worksheet part VI make sure New Jersey PTE is also selected for e-file.

To generate the PTE for an S corporation:

  1. Open the NJ S Corporation Information Worksheet.
  2. Check the box for Entity is an electing PTE.
  3. Check the box indicating the Taxpayer has filed the election to pay the Pass-Through Business Alternative Income Tax. To file the election click here to access the NJ Portal.

The program will calculate the PTE-100 and generate a Schedule PTE-K-1 for the members.

If you are e-filing the state tax return the PTE-100 will not be e-filed with the state return automatically. To include the PTE forms, on the S Corporation Information Worksheet part VI make sure New Jersey PTE is also selected for e-file.
