If everything goes according to schedule, Virginia’s tax department will begin issuing $110 refund checks – $220 for joint filers – to Virginia taxpayers beginning next week and continuing through the first half of October. The checks are the result of tax legislation signed into law earlier this year. Unfortunately, not every tax filer will get a check. Over 1 million tax filers in the state will miss out altogether, which is about 3 in 10 tax filers in Virginia. And some checks will be less than the full amount.
