Virginia taxable income; standard deduction. Increases, for taxable years beginning on and after January 1, 2019, but before January 1, 2020, the amount of the standard deduction to $6,350 for single individuals and $12,700 for married couples. Under current law, the standard deduction is $3,000 for single individuals and $6,000 for married couples. In future tax years, the deduction will be adjusted by a percentage equal to the difference in the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers between the current year and 2019. Despite the indexing, the amount of the deduction will never fall below $3,000 for individuals or $6,000 for married persons filing jointly. Read the Bill »
