RICHMOND — Virginia Tax is reminding taxpayers the automatic, six-month filing extension deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 1, and that taxpayers must file by that extension deadline to be eligible for Virginia’s one-time income tax rebates of up to $250 for single filers and $500 for married couples filing jointly.
“Like last year, we encourage taxpayers to file electronically and to request a refund, if you have one coming, via direct deposit,” said Tax Commissioner Craig Burns. “We’d also like to remind taxpayers that to be eligible for the one-time income tax rebates, they’ll need to file by Nov. 1. Generally, it takes up to two weeks to process an electronically-filed return, and up to eight weeks to process a paper return.”
Virginia Tax also highlights:
- If your income was $73,000 or less in 2021, you’re eligible to file your taxes for free.
- If you do need to make a payment, you have several easy-to-use options available including online, directly from your bank account; check or money order; and credit or debit card, both of which incur an additional fee.
- For secure, online self-service you can create and log onto an online individual 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 using the Where’s My Refund application on the Virginia Tax website.
Those with questions about their return and need more information should visit the Virginia Tax website or contact the Virginia Tax Customer Service hotline at 804-367-8031.
