Virginia State Income Tax Return Forms

Virginia
"Old Dominion"

Virginia State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2018 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018) can be e-Filed in conjunction with an IRS Income Tax Return until October 15, 2019. In January 2020, you can e-File Tax Year 2019.

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Virginia State Tax Return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns). However, the IRS and the respective State Tax Agencies require you to e-file a Federal Income Tax Return at the same time you e-file a State Tax Return. This is not an eFile.com policy but an IRS and State Agency policy. Thus, technically you cannot e-File anywhere - not just eFile.com - a Virginia Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.

Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - a Virginia 2018 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

You can however prepare all 44 State Income Tax Returns on eFile.com if you have already e-Filed or filed your IRS return. Instructions on how you can ONLY prepare and file State Income Tax Return(s).

Automatic Virginia Income Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2018 you can e-File an IRS Tax Extension by April 15, 2019 for free on eFile.com (instructions on whether you should consider a Tax Extension or not). Unlike the IRS, Virginia grants all taxpayers an automatic 6-month extension (which means you do not file an extension in Virginia) of time to file penalty free beyond the May 1, 2019 due date. The extended e-File deadline is Oct. 15, 2019 and the Virginia paper filing due date is November 1, 2019. Keep in mind however, a Virginia or IRS tax extension does not extend the due date to pay owed taxes or income tax liabilities penalty free.

If you owe Virginia and/or IRS income taxes and don't pay them by Tax Day, you will be charged Virginia and IRS late tax payment penalties. Calculate and estimate IRS late payment penalties. If you expect to owe taxes, and you are going to take advantage of the Virginia automatic extension of time to file, you should still pay what you owe and submit an Extension Payment Form 760IP - before May 1, 2019.

To avoid the Virginia penalty for late payment, you must pay at least 90% of what you owe by May 1, 2019. If you file later than 6 months after the original filing deadline, you will be penalized for failing to file as well as for failing to pay. An extension penalty of 2% per month (to a maximum of 12%) will apply to the balance of tax due with your return, from the original tax return deadline through the date of filing. If you file your return within the extension period but do not pay the full balance of tax due with your return, the balance due will be subject to a late payment penalty of 6% per month from the date of filing through the date of payment, to a maximum of 30%. The late payment penalty will be assessed in addition to any extension penalty that may apply. If you file your tax return more than six months after the original due date, the extension will be canceled and a late filing penalty of 30% will be applied to the balance of tax due with the return.

Instructions on how to eFile an IRS tax extension for free on eFile.com by April 15, 2019.

The extended IRS/Virginia eFile deadline is Oct. 15, 2019 - eFileIT* now. If you plan to file or mail-in a Virginia tax return on paper - the Forms and Mailing Address are below - your due date is November 1, 2019.
