Employee business expenses are not deductible for New Jersey income tax purposes. However, you may exclude reimbursements for employee business expenses reported as wages on your W-2 if you satisfy all the following conditions:

 - Your reimbursed expenses are job related.

 - You are required to, and do, account for these expenses to your employer.

 - Your reimbursement from your employer is the exact amount of the allowable expenses.

If you receive excludable reimbursements for employee business expenses that are included in your W-2 wages, enclose a statement explaining the amount you are excluding and your reasons for excluding this amount. Also enclose a copy of your federal Form 2106.
