If your Virginia adjusted gross income is less than $11,950 ($23,900 if married and filing a joint return), then your Virginia tax is automatically zero if you were a full-year resident of Virginia last year. You do not need to file a Virginia return unless you have a refund. If you have any Virginia tax withheld from your wages or any credits that will give you a Virginia refund, you need to file a Virginia return to get your refund.
