Virginia has elected not to conform to the federal exclusion of unemployment income for tax year 2020.
The state of Virginia does not currently tax unemployment income.
What if I filed already and excluded the unemployment income from the VA return?
If you already filed with unemployment excluded on the federal return, you will need to file an amended return adding the excluded unemployment back to your state return.
What if I didn't file yet and the unemployment is being excluded from the federal return?
If you have not yet filed, the program has been updated to add back the exclusion to the state return. You do not need to make any additional adjustments.
How do I add the unemployment back to my state return?
The program has been updated to automatically include the income back into the return,. However, if you filed before Virginia offered any guidance, you will need to add the unemployment income back to the return.
