Virginia extended individual tax filing deadline is Nov. 2
Some taxpayers are eligible to file online for free
The six-month filing extension deadline for individual income taxes in Virginia is Monday, Nov. 2, Virginia Tax reminded taxpayers Wednesday.
“Last year, more than 488,000 taxpayers took advantage of the automatic, six-month filing extension in Virginia, and the majority of those returns came in electronically,” Virginia Tax Commissioner Craig M. Burns said in a statement. “Because of COVID-19, we encourage taxpayers to file electronically this year too and to request a refund, if you have one coming, via direct deposit.”
Taxpayers whose 2019 income was $69,000 or less are likely eligible to file electronically for free, according to Virginia Tax.
Standard deductions have increased to $4,500 for individual filers and $9,000 for married couples filing jointly.
Virginia Tax also reminds taxpayers that there are multiple options for making payments including online payments as well as checks and money orders.
Taxpayers can visit Virginia Tax to track their refunds or contact the Virginia Tax Customer Service hotline at (804) 367-8031.
