Personal Income Tax Extension Deadline Approaches for Virginia Residents


RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – Virginia Tax is reminding taxpayers that if you haven’t yet filed your personal income taxes for 2020, the automatic six-month extension deadline is fast approaching.

This deadline is Wednesday November 17th.

“Like last year, we encourage taxpayers to file electronically and request a refund, if you have one, through direct deposit. Typically, it takes up to four weeks to process an electronically filed return and up to eight weeks to process a paper return. However, due to the COVID-19 protocols in place, it will likely take even longer for a paper return to flow through the system. “

Craig Burns, Tax Commissioner

Some other aspects of the next deadline include:

  • If your income was $ 72,000 or less in 2020, you can file your taxes for free.
  • If you don’t need to make a payment, you have several easy-to-use options, including online, direct deposit to your bank account, check or money order; and credit or debit card, both of which incur additional charges.
  • For secure online self-service, you can create and sign in to an individual online account that allows you to track your return or refund.
  • You can also check the status of your refund by calling 804-367-2486 or by using the Where’s My Refund app on the Virginia Tax website.

If you have questions about your return and need more information, visit the Virginia Tax website or contact the Virginia Tax customer service hotline at 804-367-8031.
