It’s official. Virginia tax conformity is a done deal.
Gov. Bob McDonnell approved HB29, the amended 2008–2010 budget bill, on Friday, May 7. Although the bill has an effective date of May 7, the Virginia Department of Taxation (TAX) confirmed that the conformity section of the budget bill is retroactive.
Virginia’s fixed-date of conformity has advanced from December 31, 2008, to January 22, 2010. However, there are several exceptions this year. Check out a recent post for details on those exceptions.
