During the 2019 General Assembly session, I was proud to support legislation that will result in a $1.2 billion tax cut for Virginia families. As part of the legislation, the Taxpayer Relief Fund was set up to return to the taxpayers an estimated $450 million
In order to qualify for the rebate, state taxes must be filed by July 1st, and the taxpayer cannot owe back taxes to their local government, the state, the IRS, or any state agency. If so, the rebate will go to settle those debts.
If you’ve already filed your taxes and you have no debts in the aforementioned categories, you are set to receive a rebate from the state. Individual filers are expected to receive a maximum $110 rebate, while joint filers can expect a maximum of $220. Note that the rebate will not be higher than the actual tax liability, meaning an individual with a liability of $50 would likely receive a $50 rebate rather than the full $110 or $220.
If you haven’t filed your state taxes yet, don’t worry. You still have time before the July 1st deadline. If you need more information on filing, visit the Department of Taxation website.
The state is expected to issue upwards of two million rebates. Naturally, this will take time and will not be instantaneous. All rebate checks are expected to be mailed by the September/October time frame.
If you have any questions, please let me know. As always, it’s an honor to represent you in the House of Delegates.
