Due to COVID-19, the Virginia Department of Taxation has extended the due date for state taxes until June 1, 2020. If there is a balance due and the taxpayer remits the payment in full on June 1, the penalty and interest will be waived per information from the Virginia Department of Taxation.
The Internal Revenue Service has also extended its due date for federal taxes to July 15, 2020 with no penalty and interest, provided the taxpayer pays the amount in full.
In addition, even though Norton City Hall is not open to the public, the Commissioner of Revenue's office is still operating on normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. If anyone has a tax return to be completed by the commissioner of revenue's office, there is a drop box available in front of the building that is normally designated for water bills.
