Out of State real estate sale

I sold a home in NJ this past year while I am now a resident of California. I do not owe any capital gains tax on this sale. But NJ automatically takes this tax at the closing of the sale, and you are to claim this tax back at the end of the year if you do not owe it. Where in the NJ state filing am I about to regain this back? I do not see any area to add this.

You actually add it in the federal section.

 

You probably have to file a NJ non resident return to report the sale and claim a refund.  

In TurboTax (TT), enter at:

Federal Taxes Tab

Deductions & Credits

-Scroll down to:

--Estimates & other taxes paid

   -Other Income taxes

On the next screen, scroll down to

     -Other income taxes paid in 2019 

       -  Withholding not already entered on a W-2 or 1099
         -On the next screen, enter the amount of withholding and the state

You may want to mail your NJ return (rather than e-file) so your can attach a copy of the form showing the withholding. 

If you itemize on the federal return, you should still enter the state withholding to  get the deduction.

<<"I am now a resident of California">>

 

If you moved from NJ to CA during 2019, you are a part-year NJ resident and you must file a resident NJ tax return and report the portion of the income you received while you were a New Jersey resident. 

See page 4 of this reference:  https://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/pdf/current/1040nri.pdf

 

In that situation you would also file a part-year resident return in CA.
