I have two clients (husband and wife) who both live in NJ and work in New York City. The NJ Dept of Revenue recently requested copies of their paper W2s and disallowed deduction from taxable wages for Dependent Care Benefits, Health and Dental Insurance, Transportation Benefits and an HSA. Generally employers will calculate the gross NJ wages on the W2 but since these employers are in NY there were no entries on the W2 for NJ thus we reported the Federal wages as wages for NJ. I Know NJ is a gross income tax but could not find anything specific as far as what deductions might be allowed. Are all of these voluntary contributions items that must be added back to taxable wages in NJ. Are there any arguments we can use regarding any of them? Whatever advise you can offer would be appreciated.
