New Jersey Paycheck Calculator & Payroll Taxes 

  • New Jersey payroll taxes begin with the employees filling out Form NJ-W4.
  • If an employee does not finish this form, you can withhold taxes as no exemptions are claimed.
  • Employees need to update their Form NJ-W4 in case of life events such as marriage or divorce, which might impact their taxes.
  • The personal income tax rate in New Jersey is 1.4%-10.75%.

How Does the New Jersey Payroll Tax Calculator Work?

Your New Jersey employer must withhold FICA and federal income taxes from your checks. FICA taxes include taxes for both Medicare and Social Security. Your employer will withhold 1.45% of your earnings per pay period for Medicare taxes and 6.2% for Social Security taxes. Remember, though, that your employer pays an equal amount to Medicare and Social Security, thus doubling the total paid.

However, if you are single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er), you must pay a 0.9% Medicare surtax on wages over $200,000.
