State Income Taxes

Virginia individual income tax returns are due every year on May 1.  Taxpayers are granted an automatic six-month extension for filing an individual income tax return.  No application for extension is required; however, any tentative tax due must be paid with a special voucher (Form 760IP) by the original due date for filing the return (May 1st for calendar year filers).  The penalty for underpayment of tentative tax is 2% per month.  There is no penalty for filing a refund return after the due date.

The Martinsville Commissioner of the Revenue's office has many Virginia State income tax forms available for Martinsville residents.  NOTE:  Due to staff changes, we are unable to continue to provide tax preparation assistance at this time.  In addition, we no longer process Virginia income tax returns.  All income tax returns sent to the Commissioner's office will simply be forwarded to the Virginia Department of Taxation in Richmond. 

In order to avoid any delay in processing, completed paper income tax returns should be sent to:

FOR REFUNDS or ZERO BALANCE (no refund or no tax due):  Virginia Department of Taxation, PO Box 1498, Richmond VA 23218-1498.   

FOR TAXES DUE:  Virginia Department of Taxation, PO Box 760, Richmond VA  23218-0760
