Electronic Tax Payment Requirement
July 19, 2017
You may have received notification from Virginia informing you of the new electronic tax payment requirement. Effective for taxable years beginning on or after January 1st, 2017, electronic tax payments are required if you meet the one following thresholds:
- Any installment payment of estimated taxes exceeds $15,000 or
- Any payment made for an extension of time to file exceeds $15,000 or
- The total estimated income tax due in any taxable year exceeds $60,000
Per the 2017 Virginia State Budget Bill, any future income tax payments must be made electronically if you meet any of these thresholds. This includes all estimated tax payments, any extension payments and amounts due when you file your Virginia tax return.
