New Jersey Tax Refund Status - Where's my money?

Wondering where your refund is?  As soon as the filing is done, that is always the next question, isn't it?  The New Jersey Division of Taxation has just unveiled a new online service that allows taxpayers to see what the status of their income tax refund is online.

Using this service (you will need your social security number and the amount of the refund reflected on your return to access) you can find out if and when your refund was mailed.  If you filed electronically, and requested direct deposit, you can see when the refund was transferred to your account.  Note that if you filed a paper return, the information won't be in the system for 6-8 weeks (yet another reason to file electronically if you don't already).

Don't like to look up sensitive information online?  You can always call for your refund status at  800-323-4400 (toll-free within NJ, NY, PA, DE, and MD) or 609-826-4400 (anywhere) .
