Taxpayers are granted an automatic six-month extension for filing an income tax return.
No application for extension is required; however, any tentative tax due must be paid with an extension voucher, Form 760IP , by the original due date for filing the return. The penalty for underpayment of tentative tax is 2% per month.
Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), for tax year 2019 the Virginia payment deadline has been changed from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020. No penalty will apply for payments made by June 1. However, the filing deadline remains May 1, and interest will accrue for payments made after May 1.
