General Instructions

Virginia corporation tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of the tax year. For calendar year filers, this date is April 15. If you cannot file on time, you can get a Virginia tax extension.

Virginia tax extensions are automatic, which means there is no application to submit. A Virginia business extension will give a corporation 6 extra months to file its return, or 30 days beyond the Federally extended deadline, whichever date is later. (The Federal business extension, IRS Form 7004, gives most corporations until September 15 to file.)

A tax extension gives you more time to file, but not more time to pay your Virginia tax. In order to obtain a Virginia extension, at least 90% of your Virginia tax liability must be paid by the original due date (April 15). Failing to make the proper extension payment will result in penalty charges.

Note that all Virginia corporations are required to electronically file and pay their state income taxes. However, if you have an approved waiver from the e-filing requirement, you are allowed to make an extension payment by check or money order using Virginia Form 500CP (Automatic Extension Payment). Otherwise, you should pay electronically via the “eForms” or “iFile” programs, which can be found online at VATAX Online Services for Businesses:
