Virginia Tax Bulletin 21-5: Important Information Regarding Certain Filing and Payment Deadlines in Virginia

09 Apr 2021 1:36 PM | Anonymous

Important Information Regarding Certain Filing and Payment Deadlines in Virginia: New Individual Income Tax Filing and Payment Deadline 

Individual income tax returns and payments required to be made with such returns for Taxable Year 2020 that were originally due May 1, 2021, are now due on or before May 17, 2021. As a result, no penalties will apply so long as a return is filed and full payment is made by May 17, 2021. In addition, pursuant to Virginia Tax's authority to waive the accrual of interest during a declared state of emergency in the commonwealth, no interest will apply so long as a return is filed and full payment is made by May 17, 2021. 

The new filing and payment deadline for certain Taxable 2020 returns applies to composite returns filed on behalf of nonresident owners. However, all other Virginia tax payment, withholding, and filing deadlines remain the same, including the requirement for calendar year filers to make their first estimated payments for Taxable Year 2021 by May 3, 2021.

More information can be found in Tax Bulletin 21-5 and in the Laws, Rules, and Decisions section of our website.
