Partial resident tax return in NJ

My wife and I filed the NJ 2020 tax return as partial residents. Because my wife worked in NJ and CA in 2020. I was working in CA only. The turbotax helped us filed both NJ-1040 and NJ-1040NR.

 

Today, I just received the notice from NJ regarding my non-resident return, which has amount due. It asks me to pay the amount due. However, my resident return has the refund, which is more than the amount due on non-resident return. 

 

I am wondering if the NJ tax division handles the resident return and non-resident return separately? Will I receive the refund in a different mail? Thanks for your help in advance.

You have to figure that when you file a resident and a non-resident NJ return, your returns will be reviewed by a  person, sooner or later.

Thanks for your reply. I don't understand your statement. I mailed the paperwork created by the turbotax to the NJ tax division. Should they review my paperwork?

" It asks me to pay the amount due. "

 

Unless you intend to dispute the adjustment,

it is recommended that you follow the instructions and pay up.

How did you possibly file 2 NJ returns for the same tax year ?   Did you file separately from your spouse ?

In NJ this is permitted if you are not a resident for the entire year.

Thanks @fanfare 

 

I just checked the refund status on NJ tax division. It shows me that it is being processed. 

Can I assume that they are process the amount due and refund separately? I will pay for the amount due now and wait for the refund process to finish. Any advices from you? Thanks.

That's what you should do.

If there are any other issues, NJ will contact you.
