2022 tax year for residents of New Jersey

This is a reminder regarding The New Jersey Health Insurance Market Preservation Act, a recently enacted law which requires New Jersey residents to maintain health insurance—and the special provision for members of health care sharing ministries, such as Samaritan Ministries.

This law requires residents of the State of New Jersey to have had minimum essential health coverage (MEC) throughout the calendar year or qualify for an exemption of coverage. Failure to have had health coverage or to have qualified for an exemption in tax year 2022 will result in a Shared Responsibility Payment (SRP).

If you are filing 2022 taxes for the State of New Jersey, you will need to complete Form NJ-1040 and, to claim your exemption as a member of a health care sharing ministry, Schedule NJ-HCC. For instructions on how to do so, as well as tax form samples, download the PDF below.
