New Jersey has added online and phone-based tools to check the status of your NJ tax refund. If you know your refund amount, enter it online along with your Social Security Number to get the status of your mailed or direct deposit tax refund. To check your NJ tax refund status by phone, call 1-800-323-4400 or 609-826-4400.
