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.
Do you need to pay taxes on the rebate?
On February 10, the IRS published guidance on the federal treatment of state tax payments to help taxpayers last year, including Virginia's one-time tax rebate.
If you took the standard deduction, you won’t need to take any action on your federal return related to the rebate.
If you itemized your deductions, you may be required to report the rebate amount you received as income on your federal return, depending on your circumstances. You’ll receive a Form 1099G in the mail, just like you would if you received a state tax refund. Please review the IRS guidance and consult a tax professional if you have additional questions.
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.
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.
