VA Filing and Payment Deadlines

Virginia’s filing deadline remains May 1, 2020, but the payment deadline has been extended to June 1, 2020. Late payment penalties will not be charged if payment is made by June 1, 2020. However, interest will still accrue starting May 1, so if you can pay earlier, you should. (Note: Interest is required by law, so VA is not able to waive it.)

Virginia Code § 58.1-15 provides that the underpayment rate for Virginia taxes will be 2% higher than the corresponding federal rate and the overpayment rate for Virginia taxes will be 2% higher than the federal overpayment rate for noncorporate taxpayers. Accordingly, the Virginia rates for the first quarter of 2019 will be 8% for tax underpayments (assessments) and 8% for tax overpayments (refunds).
