Dear Friend,

In response to the economic fallout caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government and the Commonwealth of Virginia have made changes to their tax payment deadlines. Below are summaries of the changes and resources you can use to file your taxes. Please read this information carefully, as the deadlines for Virginia and federal taxes are NOT the same.


Federal Taxes


The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service announced they are delaying the federal income tax filing and payment deadline from April 15 to July 15. All American taxpayers are automatically eligible for this extension and will have this additional time to file and make payments without late fees or interest. The IRS has published an FAQ about the extension that can be viewed here.  

State Taxes


Please keep in mind that the filing deadline for Virginia income taxes remains May 1 and the payment deadline has been delayed to June 1. Although taxpayers can now make payments through June 1, interest will still accrue on payments made after May 1. As a result, taxpayers who are able to pay by the original May 1 due date are encouraged to do so.
