RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) — Some Virginians may be eligible to receive a tax rebate. To qualify for the rebate taxpayers must file their taxes by Nov. 1, 2023 and must have had a tax liability last year.
A tax liability is the amount of money a person owes in taxes throughout the year minus any credits such as earned income credits or credits for taxes paid in another state.
Those eligible will receive up to $200 in rebates if they filed as an individual and up to $400 if they filed jointly. Those who received a state tax refund by direct deposit this year will likely receive their one-time tax rebate by direct deposit in the same bank account. All others who are eligible will get theirs by paper check in the mail.
According to the Governor’s Office, this is part of Youngkin’s commitment to lower the cost of living and provide needed tax relief. It’s expected to roll out as soon as Wednesday.
Taxpayers can go to tax.virginia.gov/rebate and check their eligibility for the one-time rebate. The rebates will be distributed on a rolling basis, with some receiving their rebates within the next three weeks.
The state anticipates issuing most rebates by Nov. 7.
“As Virginians continue to face inflation and high prices as a direct result of policies out of Washington, D.C., these rebates are an important step going into the holiday season to help Virginians keep more of their hard-earned money for gas, groceries and essentials.”
“My administration has delivered over $5 billion in tax relief to Virginians, and we remain committed to lowering the cost of living for working families and veterans across Virginia. It’s their money, not the government’s.”Governor Glenn Youngkin

“For the second time in two years, the Commonwealth is returning excess tax revenues to Virginia taxpayers,” said Secretary of Finance Stephen Cummings. “Over the next few weeks, more than $900 million will be refunded to taxpayers that filed a Virginia income tax return for tax year 2022. That brings the total to $2 billion in excess tax receipts that are being returned directly to Virginia families since last fall.”
