The 2022 Virginia General Assembly passed a law giving taxpayers with a liability a rebate of up to $250 for individual filers and up to $500 for joint filers.
Eligible taxpayers must have filed by November 1, 2022 to receive the rebate
If you're eligible and filed by September 5, we have already issued your rebate. If you haven't received it, please contact us at 804.367.8031.
If you filed after September 5, please note that we’re issuing rebates in the order that taxpayers filed their returns.
Some taxpayers will receive the rebate by direct deposit and some will receive a paper check
If you received a refund by direct deposit this year, you’ll likely receive your rebate by direct deposit in the same bank account, with the description “VA DEPT TAXATION VATXREBATE.” All other eligible taxpayers will receive their rebate by paper check in the mail.
- If you've moved in the last year and have a current forwarding order with the USPS, then your check will be forwarded to your new address.
- We’re not able to update your bank account information. If the bank account where you received your Virginia refund by direct deposit is closed, you’ll receive your rebate by paper check in the mail.
Are you eligible?
Not every taxpayer is eligible. If you had a tax liability last year, you will receive up to $250 if you filed individually, and up to $500 if you filed jointly. Tax liability is the amount of tax you owe throughout the year minus any credits (like the credit for taxes you paid to another state or the credit for low income individuals), deductions, or subtractions.
You can check your eligibility using our rebate lookup tool. If you still have questions about your eligibility, check out these common scenarios for more information.
