Below are frequently asked questions from veterans and their family members. Please contact the Veterans Services Office if you have any questions regarding the forms and processes below.
All Veterans (as of now, the definition of a "veteran" is anyone with a DD-214 that shows Honorable Discharge) who are residents of New Jersey can get a $3,000 personnel tax deduction from their income on STATE taxes for 2017. In order to get this deduction, the Veteran needs to submit a copy of their DD-214 and a form to the NJ Division of Taxation. The below link has all of the info and the form.
Please note that (1) the website says that it may take up to 3 months for this to be processed, so don't wait until April 15th to submit it; and (2) you have to print the form, sign it, and then scan it as a pdf in order to submit it on line. If you submit it online, then you will get 3 emails: confirmation that you submitted it; confirmation Taxation received it; and then a claim number from Taxation.
For more information visit the Division of Taxation's Income Tax Exemption for Veterans page.
