The Virginia Department of Taxation (TAX) announced that Virginia's tax season will officially start on Monday, Jan. 28. However, the department clarified that it would not be able to begin processing returns immediately until the General Assembly takes action on tax conformity. In addition, taxpayers will not have access to refund information until conformity is resolved.
Taxpayers who file electronically will still receive confirmation that TAX has their returns in hand. However, the return will not be processed until conformity is resolved.
The VSCPA is committed to getting tax conformity enacted as quickly as possible to allow filing season to begin. Visit vscpa.com/VoterVoice to email your legislator about the importance of swift passage of conformity legislation.
