Tax Deadlines and Monday Extension

County residents are facing some tax-filing deadlines within the next few weeks

Virginia state income tax

You must file your state income tax return by May 2 this year. Normally, the filing deadline is May 1. But, because it falls on a Sunday, returns can be filed or postmarked by Monday, May 2. Keep in mind, penalties apply on all returns filed or paid after the deadline.

Virginia state income tax returns to:

Virginia Department of Taxation,

P.O. Box 760

Richmond, VA 23218-0760.

Personal property tax

If you registered your vehicles with Fairfax County in 2010, you do not need to file another return. However, you must report any vehicle ownership, name or address change. You can report changes online or call 703-222-8234 (TTY 703-222-7594) 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

If you recently moved to Fairfax County or purchased a car, you must register the vehicle within 60 days.

If you have business personal property, or other personal property, such as boats, boat motors, mobile homes or trailers, a return must be filed with Fairfax County by May 1.

Again, since May 1 is on a Sunday, returns received or postmarked by Monday, May 2, will be considered on time.
