Amending an Individual New Jersey Return in ProConnect Tax

SOLVEDby Intuit1Updated June 09, 2023

To amend a New Jersey return:

If you are planning to e-file this New Jersey amendment, make sure you select the New Jersey Amended for e-file on the Profile tab.

  1. From the Input Return tab, go to Miscellaneous Forms Amended Return (1040-X)/Superseded General Information and Federal (1040X).
  2. Check the box labeled Amending Federal Return if applicable.
  3. Enter a 1 in the input 1=Amending state return and set the state to NJ.
  4. Go to the Explanation of Changes tab.
  5. Enter the reason for amending the New Jersey return in New Jersey explanation of changes.
  6. Along the left side menu, select the NJ Amended Return (NJ 1040-X).
  7. Review the originally reported amounts in this input screen, and input any missing information if applicable.
  8. Make the amended inputs in the normal input screens (If amending the Schedule C, input the changes on the Schedule C input screen, if amending the wage amounts make your changes on the Wages, Salaries, Tips input screen, etc.).

Note: A Resident New Jersey return (NJ-1040) will generate a NJ-1040X amended return form. A Nonresident New Jersey return (NJ-1040NR) will not generate a NJ-1040X. There is not a separate form for amending a non resident return. Making inputs for amending the New Jersey return will instead check the This is an amended return box at the top of the NJ-1040NR.
