Extension of Time to File
There is no extension of time to pay your tax due – only to file.
Penalties and interest will be charged if you pay your tax after April 15, 2020. (Military personnel and civilians providing support to the Armed Forces, see page 45.)
You can receive a six-month extension of time to file if you pay at least 80% of your tax liability (line 43) through withholdings, estimated payments, or other payments by the original due date, and
• You enclose a copy of your federal Application for Automatic Extension, if filed by paper, and fill in the oval on the front of your NJ-1040; or
• You file Form NJ-630, Application for Extension of Time to File New Jersey Gross Income Tax Return, by April 15, 2020. You can file an extension application online until 11:59 p.m., April 15, 2020, at njtaxation.org, or use the NJ-630 provided at the front of this booklet.
If you do not meet the requirements for an extension, or you do not file your return by the extended due date, we will deny your extension request and charge penalties and interest from the original due date of the return. (See “Penalties and Interest” on page 45.) You will not receive an approved copy of your extension request. We will notify you only if we deny your request, but not until after you actually file your return
