The back-rower reportedly rejected a big-money offer from the New Zealand Warriors to remain at the Cowboys.
Cowboys general manager of football Peter Parr said the club was “delighted” to keep hold of the 21-year-old.
We know Jason has an incredibly bright future in the game and we’re delighted that future will be with the Cowboys,” Parr said in a club statement.
Taumalolo, who made his Test debut for New Zealand in the Four Nations, said he was looking forward to his future with the Cowboys.
“I couldn’t be happier knowing that my future is secured with the club, and look forward to a big season with the boys,” Taumalolo said.
The New Zealand international made his Cowboys debut as a 17-year-old in 2010 and has since gone on to play 60 games for the club.
