NJ State Tax Rates | NJ Tax Calculator | Cost of Living Calculator
Before using our Income Tax Calculator, here are some basic tax principles that you should know. New Jersey state income tax along with a federal tax is usually withheld from your paycheck as you receive it each pay cycle. While the federal income tax rates are set for each income bracket, NJ state income tax rates do not necessarily align with the federal figures.
The variable income tax rate for New Jersey is determined by NJ state tax legislation. How much income tax that is withheld from your paycheck depends on which tax bracket you fall under. In general the more you make, the more you will be taxed.
