Simple Guide to IRS and Virginia Tax Deadlines

In order to simplify all of the newly released information from the IRS and Virginia Department of Taxation on tax filing deadlines for individuals, we at Harris, Hardy & Johnstone, P.C. have put together a simplified set of instructions for our clients on how we would like to approach the upcoming filing deadlines.


Virginia deadlines for Individuals

  • Filing deadline for 2019 tax returns is May 1, 2020.  Please note, this has not changed.
  • Payment deadline to avoid interest and late filing penalties for 2019 tax returns is May 1, 2020.
  • First quarter estimate for the 2020 tax year is due June 1, 2020.
  • Second quarter estimate for the 2020 tax year is due June 15, 2020.

Because Virginia has not changed their deadline for charging interest on balances due, we are encouraging all of our clients to get their information in, as soon as possible.  By getting your information in quickly, we can calculate any balance due to Virginia prior to May 1, 2020, thus avoiding interest being charged on that balance due.

  • Second quarter estimate for the 2020 tax year is due June 15, 2020This is not a typo.

If you file your federal return prior to July 15, 2020, you still have until July 15, 2020 to pay any amount due.
