Q

Yes. The state of Virginia supports the automatic extension of time to file personal income tax Form 760.

What Form does the state of Virginia require to apply for an extension?

Q

There is no state-specific form to request an extension, as the state of Virginia automatically grants the extension for up to 6 months for individuals to file an income tax return with the state.

When is the due date to file personal tax Form 760 with Virginia?

Virginia personal tax filings are due by May 17, 2021 for calendar tax year filers, and the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the taxable year for fiscal year filers.
