There are several circumstances which could cause a difference between the income tax refund you received and the
amount that appears on your 1099-G. The most common scenarios are listed below.
The amount of the refund reported on your Form 1099-G may differ from the amount of refund you actually received if
all or part of the overpayment was:
- credited to estimated tax for the subsequent year
- applied to a voluntary contribution that you designated on your income tax return
- applied to a tax debt owed to New Jersey, another state, or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- applied to a debt owed to another state agency, such as: child support, past-due student loans, etc.
Note: The Form 1099-G does not include interest paid by New Jersey on an overpayment. If interest was paid on your
refund you will see it reflected on Form 1099-INT which will be mailed to you. These Forms will not be accessible
through the online service.
