RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia Tax is reminding taxpayers in Virginia that if you haven't yet filed your individual income taxes, the filing and payment deadline is just days away. You have until Wednesday, May 1, 2024, to submit your return.

Taxpayers can find detailed information on our website.

"We are, as always, encouraging you to file electronically and request a refund, if you have one coming, via direct deposit," notes Tax Commissioner James J. Alex.

Electronically filed returns are typically processed within four weeks, while mailed returns may take up to eight weeks or longer to process.

In addition:

  • No penalties or interest will apply so long as you file a return and make full payment by the deadline;
  • If you qualify, you’re eligible to file your taxes for free;
  • If you miss the filing deadline, Virginia has an automatic, 6-month filing extension. You must pay the tax owed on time to avoid additional penalties and interest; and
  • If you do need to make a payment, you can pay online, directly from your bank account; with a check or money order; or with a credit or debit card.

For secure, online self-service you can create and log into an online individual account, allowing 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.
