Virginia Tax reminds Virginia taxpayers that if you have not yet filed your personal income taxes, the filing and payment deadline is coming soon.
You have until Monday, May 2, 2022 to submit your declaration. Taxpayers can watch a new filing options video, follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates, and find detailed information on our website.
“This year, the Virginia filing deadline falls on the first business day after Sunday, May 1,” said Tax Commissioner Craig M. Burns. “We encourage you, as always, to file electronically and request a refund, if you have one, by direct deposit.”
Returns filed electronically are usually processed within two weeks, while mailed returns can take up to eight weeks or more to process.
Here are some other important things to keep in mind:
- No penalty or interest will apply as long as a return is filed and full payment is made by the due date;
- If your income was $73,000 or less in 2021, you are entitled to file your tax return for free;
- If you miss the filing deadline, Virginia has an automatic 6-month filing extension. No application is required. You should always pay any taxes due on time to avoid additional penalties and interest; and
- If you need to make a payment, you have several easy-to-use options, including online, directly from your bank account; Check or money order; and credit or debit card, both of which incur additional charges.
For secure online self-service, you can create and log in to an individual online account. This allows you to track your return or refund. You can also check the status of your refund by calling 804.367.2486 or by using the Where’s My Refund app on the Virginia Tax website.
