More time to file and pay

If you won’t be able to file by the original May 1 deadline, don’t worry. Everyone has an automatic 6-month filing extension in Virginia, which moves the filing deadline from May 1 to November 1 for most taxpayers (and since Nov. 1, 2020 is a Sunday, you actually have until Monday, Nov. 2 to file this year).

In addition, as part of the state's COVID-19 tax relief actions, if you owe taxes, you have until June 1, 2020 to pay without any penalties or interest. 

This also applies to individual extension payments for Taxable Year 2019 as well as the first estimated income tax payments for Taxable Year 2020.
