Mandatory Filing and Registration

The Newark Tax Ordinance has a Mandatory Registration Section that requires all residents age 18 or older to register with the Newark Tax Office.  Registration is easy.  Click here to access our Registration Form.


Newark's Ordinance also has a mandatory filing requirement.  All residents who are 18 or older are required to file an annual Newark City Tax Return regardless of their income.  There are three forms to simplify meeting your filing requirement.


EX - The EX annual return is for all residents who have no income or whose income is not subject to Newark Tax.

SF - The SF annual return is for all residents who have only W-2 income.

LF - The LF annual return is for all other residents.

Click on the underlined name of the form to access the return that best fits your needs.  Both fillable PDF and Excel versions are available.
