The 2023 Virginia General Assembly passed a law giving taxpayers with a tax liability a rebate of up to $200 for individual filers and up to $400 for joint filers. Eligible taxpayers must have filed their 2022 individual income tax return by November 1, 2023 to receive the rebate.
Do you need to pay taxes on the 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, just like you would if you received a state tax refund. Please review the IRS guidance on state tax payments to help taxpayers and consult a tax professional if you have additional questions.

Are you eligible?
Not every taxpayer is eligible. If you had a tax liability last year, you will receive up to $200 if you filed individually, and up to $400 if you filed jointly. Tax liability is the amount of tax you owe throughout the year minus any credits (like the earned income tax credit or the credit for taxes you paid to another state), deductions, or subtractions.
