Virginia Tax reminds taxpayers that the deadline to file individual income taxes in Virginia is just days away. The automatic, six-month filing extension deadline is Sunday, Nov. 1, but because it falls on a weekend, you have until Monday, Nov. 2, to submit a return.
Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare your return:
• The standard deductions have changed. They have increased to $4,500 for individual filers and $9,000 for married couples filing jointly;
• If your 2019 income was $69,000 or less, you’re likely eligible to file electronically for free. The criteria for each provider is different, so you’ll need to review each option carefully to make sure you qualify before you get started; and
• If you do end up owing taxes, there are multiple options for making a payment.
To track your refund, use the Virginia Tax “Where’s my refund?” tool, or call the automated refund system at 804-367-2486.
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.
