Tax rebate 2022: Virginia residents have 13 days to claim rebate worth up to $500

Eligible residents of the commonwealth of Virginia have until next month to file their 2021 taxes to receive a rebate of up to $500.

Taxpayers must have received a tax liability for their 2021 taxes to get a rebate of up to $250 for individual filers and $500 for joint filers, per the Virginia Tax Commission. The state says nearly 3.2 million taxpayers are eligible for the tax rebates.

A tax liability is defined as the amount of money owed in taxes subtracted by tax credits or deductions, according to the state’s Tax Commission. The state portal for the rebates opened on Sept. 19, with eligible residents who filed their 2021 taxes by Sept. 5 set to receive their rebate by the end of the month.

Rebates will be delivered to eligible Virginians by direct deposit or paper check — to those who file their 2021 taxes by Nov. 1.

Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) touted the bipartisan rebates for returning tax dollars to citizens in a press release last month.

“As Virginians face high inflation and prices coming from policies set in Washington, these one-time tax rebates will help families lower the cost of living,” said Youngkin. “Past administrations have overtaxed Virginians and by returning taxpayer money to Virginia’s taxpayers we are ensuring that hard working Virginians get to keep more of their paycheck during these difficult economic times.”

The state also says the rebate will be used to fulfill any outstanding debt to certain government agencies or departments before being given to recipients.
