Virginia Should Have Received Stimulus Check By October
The rebates are being issued in the order that taxpayers filed their returns. If you are eligible and have filed your returns by September 5, the administration will send the rebate by October 17 and you will receive it by the end of the month.
To be eligible you must file your income tax returns by November 1. Several taxpayers will receive the rebate through direct account deposit while the rest will get their payment through a paper stimulus check delivered through the US Postal Service.
If you have received the refund amount directly to your bank this year, your rebate will also be directly deposited to your bank and you should get it within two to three working days. The narration of the bank deposit will describe the payment as VA Dept. Taxation Vat Rebate.
The rest of the eligible taxpayers should expect to wait a little more to receive their stimulus check through the US Postal Service. Filers who have moved in the last year and have notified their forwarding address on US Postal Service will receive their amount as the administration has an arrangement with the service.
If any filer was unable to update their bank account info and the administration is unable to send the money through the direct deposit route, you will get your stimulus check through the postal service.
Taxpayers Can Have Their Stimulus Checks Withheld Or Reduced To Pay For Existing Debts
If you owe money to the Virginia administration, or other institutions and government agencies, the administration will use your rebate amount to fulfill the debt and send you the remainder of the amount through a stimulus check.
If your debt is higher than the amount of the Virginia rebate stimulus check amount, you will get a letter explaining the reason for the total deduction of the stimulus check amount.
The question that residents have been frequently asking is whether the rebate is taxable. If you have itemized the deductions, you will be required to report the amount of the rebate received as income on federal returns.
You will subsequently receive your Form 1099G in the mail similar to the method for receiving a state tax refund. If you avail of the standard deduction, you are not required to go for any further action on the federal return related to the rebate. The IRS website will give detailed information on all related issues.
