If you live and work in Maryland, you should have no tax obligation to New Jersey. The location of the office from which your compensation is issued should have no impact on your tax liability.

Your question does not mention whether you are an employee, with earnings reported on Form W-2, or and independent contractor, with non employee compensation reported on Form 1099-MISC. If you receive a 1099-MISC, I would advise you to complete your federal and Maryland income tax returns, including your Schedule C to report your self-employment income and related expenses, and not consider filing in NJ.

If you received a W-2, and your employer withheld NJ taxes, I would advise you to file a nonresident tax return in NJ, indicating that you did not earn any compensation in the state, and claiming a total refund of any tax withheld. File your federal and Maryland returns normally, as above. If no NJ tax was withheld, again, do not consider filing in NJ.
