Important Information for Those Affected by the COVID-19 Crisis: Option to Request Extension of Sales Tax Deadlines
Tax Commissioner Craig M. Burns has announced that Virginia Tax will consider requests from sales tax dealers for an extension of the due date for filing and payment of the February 2020 sales tax return due March 20, 2020. If the request is granted, Virginia Tax will allow filing and payment of such return on April 20, 2020, with a waiver of any penalties that would have applied. However, interest will accrue even if an extension is granted.
Dealers should submit a request for extension by utilizing the secure e-mail
system available on the Virginia Tax website, by faxing to 804.254.6111, or writing to the following address:
Office of Customer Services
P.O. Box 1115
Richmond, VA 23218-1115
