If you owed money on your Virginia tax return in 2021, you were in luck in 2022. That's because the Virginia General Assembly passed a law giving some Virginia taxpayers a 2022 tax "stimulus" rebate of up to $250 for individual filers and up to $500 for joint filers. 

Most of those rebates were sent by Oct. 31, 2022, but you had to have filed your 2021 Virginia individual income tax return by Nov. 1, 2022 to receive the Virginia tax rebate.
