Virginia has announced that the tax filing deadline for individual returns is May 17th.
Virginia Filing Due Date: VA individual income tax returns are due by May 1 (for calendar year filers). If you file based on the fiscal year, your return is due by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the taxable year.
Extended Deadline with Virginia Tax Extension: Virginia offers a 6-month extension, which moves the individual filing deadline from May 1 to November 1 (for calendar year filers).
Virginia Tax Extension Form: Virginia’s tax extension is automatic. That means there’s no official application to submit as long as you owe zero Virginia tax. Virginia’s extension form, Form 760IP, should only be used if you need to make an extension payment for your Virginia income tax. Do not file Form 760IP if you have no Virginia tax liability.
Virginia Extension Payment Requirement: A tax extension gives you more time to file. It does not give you extra time to pay your Virginia income tax. All state tax payments are due by the original deadline of the return (i.e. May 1). Any VA tax that hasn’t been paid by the proper due date will be subject to interest and penalties. You are required to pay 90% of your Virginia tax liability to avoid the extension penalty. You can make a Virginia extension payment with Form 760IP, or pay electronically using VATAX Online Services: www.individual.tax.virginia.gov
Virginia Tax Extension Tip: Do not file Form 760IP if you submit your Virginia extension payment by electronic means.
