Per the VA Tax 2019 Virginia Tax Relief Refund webpage:

Who’s eligible?

You're eligible for the 2019 Tax Relief Refund if:

  • You filed a 2018 Virginia individual resident, nonresident, or part year resident income tax return by July 1, 2019; and
  • You have a 2018 tax liability in Virginia.

Why are we sending these refunds?

The Virginia Tax Relief Refunds are the result of state legislation passed by the 2019 Virginia General Assembly in response to the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Eligible taxpayers may receive up to $110 for individual filers and up to $220 for a married couple filing jointly.

How do we calculate the amount of the tax relief refund?

In summary, if you owed Virginia income tax in 2018, and didn’t take any credits (or the credits you took don’t zero out your tax liability), you will be eligible for part or all of the 2019 Virginia Tax Relief Refund – up to $110 for individual filers and up to $220 for a married couple filing jointly. However, you may not receive your Virginia Tax Relief Refund if you have an offset claim.
