As you became a DE resident in 2016, you are subject to DE tax as a part-year resident.  The way that tax is computed is that a tentative tax is calculated as if you were a DE resident for the whole year and that amount is then prorated by the percentage of income actually earned in DE.

Was there any mention of DE on your W-2 or 1099's?

And you file a part-year NJ return, so the NJ tax for 2016 is less than a year's worth and the DE covers the other part of the year.

If you had no income at all (salary, interest, pension, Social Security, etc) while you lived in DE, then you would owe DE no tax.
