New Jersey Payroll Tax FAQs

What Are the New Jersey State Payroll Taxes?

New Jersey manages state payroll taxes through the NJ Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services.

  • Income Taxes: New Jersey has a progressive income tax depending on the employee’s filing status and income level, up to 11.8%. Employers with employees working or living in Newark and Jersey City must register with those cities and also pay a 1% employer tax.
  • Unemployment Insurance (UI): Employers and employees contribute to unemployment insurance with rates ranging from 0.4% to 5.4%. New employers pay a flat rate of 2.68%.
  • Disability Insurance (DI): New employers pay 0.5% on employee wages (employees contribute 0.47%). The tax rate for existing employers is based on each employer’s claims history.
  • Family Leave Insurance (FLI): New Jersey only requires employees to contribute to the state FLI plan. Employers can provide employees with family leave insurance through a private company, but it cannot cost employees more than the state plan does.
  • NJ Workforce Development Partnership Fund: Employers contribute 0.1175%, employees contribute 0.0425%.

What is an Employer Registration Number?

Once CorpNet registers your business with the NJ Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services, you will be issued an Employer Registration Number, which is used for both New Jersey withholding and unemployment taxes.
