Wild guess, but did you maybe disable it?
Settings -> wireless & networks -> more -> NFC, Android Beam
And I think bluetooth also needs to be on.

NFC on the Nexus 7 is positioned just where the logo is and a bit above it on the back side.
Nokia Lumia 925 16GB
Nexus 7 32GB, 4.4.2 stock, rooted, Xposed installed
Sony Ericsson Arc S, 4.0 .587, rooted

Dropbox for you: http://db.tt/Qk80xRg 500MB extra for both of us.

Nfc works fine here on stock 4.4.2,however what you describe isn't so much Nfc as it is file transfers that Samsung hawks about but nobody else does (beaming files around over wifi using Nfc to initiate).
AT&T LG G2 - 4.3, AOKP
Samsung Note i717 - 4.2.2, Unofficial AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.2, Stock Rooted (m-kernel)

Try using Superbeam, connects via NFC and transfers via WiFi, really fast.
