Virginia tax refunds are coming this fall
This fall, about 3.2 million eligible Virginia taxpayers will receive one-time tax refunds of up to $250 for individual filings and up to $500 for joint filings, according to a press release from Gov. Glenn Youngkin.
Beginning September 19, taxpayers can check eligibility for this one-time tax refund at tax.virginia.gov/rebate. Discounts will be processed “first in/first out,” the statement said. Those who submitted by July 1st should expect their discount to arrive by the end of October. Those submitting between July 1st and November 1st will receive their refund within 4 months of their submission date.
Taxpayers who received a direct deposit state tax refund this year will likely receive their one-time tax refund through direct deposit into the same bank account. All other eligible taxpayers will receive their refund by paper check in the mail.
“As Virginians face high inflation and prices driven by the policies set out in Washington, these one-time tax breaks will help families lower the cost of living,” Gov. Glenn Youngkin said. “Previous governments have overstretched Virginians, and by returning taxpayer money to Virginia’s taxpayers, we’re making sure hard-working Virginians can keep more of their paychecks during these tough economic times.”
America the Beautiful initiative
The US Fish and Wildlife Service has announced new wildlife hunting and fishing opportunities in 18 national wildlife refuges covering approximately 38,000 acres across the country, as part of the Biden administration’s effort to increase access to recreational activities on public lands.
“We are committed to ensuring Americans of all ethnicities have access to hunting, fishing and other recreational activities on the land and waters of the National Wildlife Refuge System,” Service Director Martha Williams said in a statement. “These regulations will increase public access, better align the service with state regulations, and help promote healthy wildlife habitats while boosting local recreation economies.”
This last rule includes 109 different ways to hunt or sport fish, including shelters there in Virginia:
• Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge: Open up new acres and acres already open to other hunts for upland game and turkey hunting, and expand existing big game and waterfowl hunting.
•James River National Wildlife Refuge: Open hunting of migratory birds.
• Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge: Open waterfowl hunting on acres already open to other hunts.
• Wallops Island National Wildlife Refuge: Open migratory and upland game hunting for the first time.
Improving access to public lands and waters is a central component of the US government’s conservation approach, including locally led and volunteer efforts to conserve and protect US lands and waters through the America the Beautiful initiative.
This measure brings the number of units in the service’s National Wildlife Refuge System where the public is allowed to hunt to 436 and the number where fishing is allowed to 378.
