Notes

  • Follow the New Jersey Division of Revenue instructions for filing via SFTP.
  • Currently, Form NJ 927 or NJ-927-W support e-filing only for clients that pay both DI and FLI tax amounts to the same type of plan - that is, where DI and FLI are both paid to a private plan or are both paid to a state plan. Combined plans are currently not supported by the application, however the state does allow for online manual entry in those cases.
  • Enter the New Jersey Authorization Number or Payroll Service Prefix in the Transmitter Information dialog, accessed from the Actions > Process Internet/Magnetic Files screen.
