Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed the Virginia General budget into law after legislation cleared the General Assembly earlier. Virginians will receive one-time checks, starting in late September. Individual filers will receive $250, while married couples who file together getting will get $500.
Eligible taxpayers who have filed their taxes prior to July 1, 2022, are likely to receive their rebates in the fall of 2022. Tax Rebates may be issued as a check or a direct deposit.
Announcing the plan, Gov. Glenn Youngkin said:
Every day we have worked hard to build a more prosperous Virginia, with greater opportunities for future generations. Together, we enacted historic tax cuts and made record investments in education and public safety. Together, we stood for greater accountability and transparency in government. And together, we are building an opportunity society, where Virginians can find the jobs they are looking for right here in the Commonwealth. This has always been about the movement we created together. It’s the people who sent us all to Richmond who make this Virginia we love so great.
Other highlights of the budget include increased standard deduction, a pay raise for teachers, funding for law enforcement measures, and a cut in the state’s grocery tax.
