For calendar year filers who were out of the country on May 1, 2013, Taxable Year 2012 Virginia income tax returns are due by July 1, 2013. The extended due date for individuals who were out of the country on May 1, 2013, is January 1, 2014.
Virginia law allows an automatic six-month extension for filing Individual Income Tax returns, but requires that at least 90 percent of the final tax liability be paid by the original due date. Taxpayers who do not meet the payment requirement may be subject to the extension penalty. Visit the Department's website for more details on penalty and interest charges.
Special note for military service members: If you were out of the country pursuant to military orders, especially if you served in a combat zone, special extension provisions may apply. Visit the Military Tax Tips page on the Department's website for details.
