You will only file a NY return.  The NJ unemployment income is considered New York income if you received it while living in New York.  (All income you receive while living in New York is taxable in New York).  However, even if the unemployment were considered as taxable to NJ, NJ does not tax unemployment.  Please see this website for more information:  http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/njit12.shtml

Did you work in NJ at all last year?
