I e-filed NJ-1040 on 4/16/20 with all boxes checked to have NJ quarterly 2020 estimates made electronically from client's bank account. Return was initially accepted, but now I continue to get the following error notice:
"When you E-File the estimate payment for New Jersey you must transmit as a separate
transaction from the state return. You must check the state est payment E-File on the
federal information worksheet to file the estimate payment. Then you do not mark the
individual return for E-File on the federal information worksheet screen. After you E-File
the estimate you can go back into the return and E-File the state return be sure to uncheck
the estimate when doing the state return."
I have gone back at least 5 times and followed these instructions to the letter, and each time the filing is initially accepted, but as soon as I log back in, I get the same error notice. I know NJ electronic estimates are a new feature this year - anyone else have this problem?
Sorry, I never e-file state personal estimates for my clients, or myself either. Once they are set up it is very difficult to stop them.
It's not worth the aggregation.
I have a similar issue. After each estimated payment is accepted the system permits you to electronically file the next one. My question is whether only the estimate tax form is efiled and if the payment needs to be by check? The Federal estimate makes it clear, but I am not sure about the NJ.
