Entering New Jersey Wages Greater Than Federal

by Intuit Updated 4 months ago

When the Taxpayer is a full year NJ resident, and NJ wages are higher than the other state and Federal wages, the amount will need to be entered in State Wages if different.

  1. Go to Screen 10, Wages, Salaries, Tips.
  2. Click on the W-2 or Add from the left navigation panel.
  3. Enter the information as reported on the W-2 for the Federal and other states (if applicable).
    • Note: Don't use the source column.
  4. Scroll down to the State and Local section.
  5. Enter the NJ amount in, (16) State wages, if different.
    • Note: Don't use the source column.

This will print the amount from box 16 (step 5) on the NJ-1040, line 14.
