Submitting files

Make sure you have credentials to log in to New Jersey's secure website Axway. Axway is the same website for electronically filing Forms NJ-927/WR-30 with New Jersey. Email New Jersey at to obtain credentials if you don't already have them for e-filing.

When applying for an Axway Account it is advisable to indicate in the email that your software does format the file correctly and that you "anticipate" filing more than 100 New Jersey Forms.

For current WR-30 E-Filers, use the same Axway login profile to access the website.

If you currently use Axway Cloud to upload the W-2 file, please follow the same procedures when transmitting the NJ-W-3 form. The same login name and password will be used to access Axway Cloud for both transmissions.

Once the site has been accessed, choose the “Browse” option to locate the W-2 file on your computer. Name the file W2Report. When the file is located, choose “Open.” The file name and location will populate the box. Once the file is located, choose “Upload File” to complete the transaction..

Electronic Filing Mandate for All W-2s and 1099s Beginning with Tax Year 2020, The Division of Taxation is requiring mandatory electronic filing for W-2s and 1099s. The mandate includes Forms NJ-W-3, W-2, W-2G, 1094/1095, and all types of 1099s. Go to go to for details.

• If filing a corrected W-2, 1099-R, 1099-MISC, W-2G, etc., submit an amended Form NJ-W-3. Include a copy of the corrected W-2, 1099-R, 1099-MISC, W-2G, etc., with the amended Form NJ-W-3

• If filing a corrected NJ-W-3 only, submit an amended Form NJ-W-3. You do not need to attach the W-2s or 1099s you submitted with the original W-3.

Note: If the correction changes the amount of tax reported and you already filed quarterly returns, you must amend each quarterly return affected by the change. See Correcting Form NJ-927, NJ-927-W, or NJ-927-H.
