Per the Virginia Tax website:

Individual Income Tax Filing Due Dates

  • Per the Virginia Tax website:  Typically, most people must file their tax return by May 1. However, the filing deadline for 2020 individual income tax returns has been extended to Monday, May 17, 2021. For more information about filing your return this year, see Avoid Pandemic Paper Delays: Tips for Filing Season.
  • Fiscal year filers: Returns are due the 15th day of the 4th month after the close of your fiscal year.

If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, you have until the next business day to file with no penalty.

Filing Extensions

Can’t file by the deadline? Virginia allows an automatic 6-month extension to file your return (Nov. 1 for most people). No application is required. You still need to pay any taxes owed on time to avoid additional penalties and interest. Make an extension payment.

File your Virginia state income tax returns by May 17, and send them to:
