Your New Jersey tax identification (ID) number has 12 digits. If you have a Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), your New Jersey tax ID number is your FEIN followed by a 3 digit suffix. If you do not have a suffix, enter three zeroes. Do not use hyphens, slashes, or other punctuation. (Example: If your FEIN is 12-3456789, enter 123456789000). If you do not have a FEIN, your New Jersey tax ID number is usually the Social Security Number of the primary business owner followed by three zeroes."
Your NJ PIN = NJ State PIN in the New Jersey AutoFile enrollment form.
Can I use AutoFile if I don't have a PIN?
Yes! You will also have the option to use your NJ Premier Business Services (PBS) credentials to enroll in AutoFile.
What else should I know?
If you plan to use your PBS account to file, confirm that your business has been successfully added to your state tax account, so that there will be returns generated to file.
Make sure that you have an active sales tax license and that you have the most current login credentials for your account.
If you're not sure of the status of your license, you can check the registration paperwork you received, or contact the state directly to ask them to locate this detail for your account. (We list contact details for each state's DOR here.)
