34:15D-17.  Refund to taxpayer
6.  a.  If an employee receives wages from more than one employer during any calendar year, and the sum of the employee's contributions deposited in the Workforce Development Partnership Fund exceeds an amount equal to 0.025% of the wages determined in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (3) of subsection (b) of R.S.43:21-7 during the calendar year beginning January 1, 1993 or any subsequent calendar year, the employee shall be entitled to a refund of the excess if a claim establishing the employee's right to the refund is made within two years after the end of the respective calendar year in which the wages are received and are the subject of the claim.  The commissioner shall refund any overpayment from the fund without interest.

b. Any employee who is a taxpayer and entitled, pursuant to the provisions of subsection a. of this section, to a refund of contributions deducted during a tax year from his wages shall, in lieu of the refund, be entitled to a credit in the full amount thereof against the tax otherwise due on his New Jersey gross income for that tax year if he submits his claim for the credit and accompanies that claim with evidence of his right to the credit in the manner provided by regulation by the Director of the Division of Taxation.  In any case in which the amount, or any portion thereof, of any credit allowed hereunder results in or increases an excess of income tax payment over income tax liability, the amount of the new or increased excess shall be considered an overpayment and shall be refunded to the taxpayer in the manner provided by subsection (a) of N.J.S.54A:9-7.
