Taxes & Additional Duties
Virginia Estimated Taxes
The first Individual Estimated Tax voucher and payment are sent to the Commissioner of Revenue's Office to set up a local account. The payments are then forwarded to the Treasurer's Office for processing. All remaining vouchers and payments are sent directly to the Treasurer's Office for processing. The due dates for Estimated Tax payments are as follows:
- May 1
- June 15
- September 15
- January 15
If the due date falls on a weekend, the tax is due the next business day. One of the benefits of paying at the local level is that the Treasurer's Office maintains a record of each payment in our office. Payment information is then transmitted to the Virginia Department of Taxation to update individual records.
