General Instructions

Virginia individual income tax returns are due by May 1, unless you are a fiscal year filer (in which case, your return is due by the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of the taxable year). If you cannot file on time, you can get a Virginia tax extension.

A Virginia income tax extension will give you 6 extra months to file your return, moving the filing deadline to November 1 (for calendar year filers). There is no paper form or Virginia extension application to submit. However, at least 90% of your Virginia tax liability must be paid by the original deadline of your return (May 1) or penalties will apply.

To make a Virginia extension payment, use Form 760IP (Automatic Extension Payment Voucher for Individuals). State extension payments can be made by paper check or money order using Form 760IP, or electronically via VATAX Online Services for Individuals:

NOTE: You do not need to file Form 760IP if you owe zero state income tax — in this case, you will automatically receive a Virginia tax extension. Additionally, do not file Form 760IP if you make your Virginia extension payment electronically.
