Important Information Regarding Virginia's Income Tax Payment Deadlines: Income Tax Payment Extension and Penalty Waiver in Response to the COVID-19 Crisis 

Bottom line: Filing deadline is still May 1st, but taxes due can be paid up till June 1st without penalty (interest will apply).  IRS has extended their filing date to July 15th.

Virginia Tax is announcing that any income tax payments due during the period from April 1, 2020, to June 1, 2020, can now be submitted at any time on or before June 1, 2020, without penalty. As a result, Virginia Tax will automatically waive any late payment penalties that would otherwise apply so long as full payment is made by June 1, 2020. If full payment of the amount owed during the period is not made by June 1, 2020, this penalty waiver will not apply, and late payment penalties will accrue from the original date that the payment was due.

Interest will continue to accrue from the original due date of such payment. Therefore, taxpayers who are able to pay by the original due date are encouraged to do so. Taxes eligible for this payment extension and penalty waiver include individual, corporate, and fiduciary income taxes, as well as any estimated income tax payments that are required to be paid to Virginia Tax during this period.

Please note that this does not provide a filing extension. To avoid any late filing penalties that may apply, taxpayers that utilize the aforementioned payment extension are still required to file income tax returns by the relevant due dates. However, if you are unable to file by such due dates, Virginia offers automatic filing extensions to all taxpayers for up to 6 months (or 7 months in the case of certain corporations). No application is required to file on extension. Please see the Virginia Tax website for more information. If you decide to take advantage of Virginia’s automatic filing extension, please be sure to make an extension payment by June 1, 2020, to avoid late payment penalties or extension penalties, as applicable.

The Commissioner of the Revenue is responsible for receiving and processing all Virginia state income tax returns for Augusta County residents.

The filing deadline for Virginia income tax returns is May 1.
