Income Tax Instructions

Be on Guard against Identity Theft and Tax Scams Identity theft, tax refund fraud, and similar tax scams continue to target taxpayers in Vermont. Taxpayers have reported emails and phone calls from people posing as employees of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Vermont Department of Taxes. Some scammers are clever enough to pose as their victims’ tax preparers to obtain private information. A common ploy scammers use is to falsely claim taxes are owed and demand immediate payment using threats and bullying. Scammers often target the elderly using these tactics. How to protect yourself from becoming a victim • Never give out personal information unless you are sure of the identity of the person requesting it. • If you suspect that an email or phone call is fraudulent, do not engage in conversation. Contact the Department at 802-828-2865 or 1-866-828-2865 (toll-free) to verify an email or phone call. How to report fraud • Report suspected fraud immediately to the Vermont Department of Taxes and the IRS. Information about how to report fraud is available on the Department website at tax.vermont.gov/identity-theft. • Suspected fraud also should be reported to the Vermont Attorney General’s Consumer Assistance Program at (800) 649-2424 (toll-free).

NOTE: If you meet these requirements but your homestead is leased to a tenant on April 1, 2021, you may still claim it as a homestead if it is not leased for more than 182 days in the calendar year. For definitions of “domicile,” “resident,” and “nonresident,” see our website. Due date: The Homestead Declaration must be filed by April 15, 2021, to avoid penalties for late filing.

Did I do something wrong? We may ask you to supply additional information to explain items on your Vermont income tax return. A request for more information does not necessarily mean that you filed improperly or that you have been selected for an audit. This type of request is a routine part of processing. It is important that you respond promptly with the requested information. Your return cannot be processed until the Department receives the information requested. For faster processing time, you may submit the requested information at myVTax.vermont.gov. Can my refund be taken to pay another debt? Your income tax refund will be taken to pay a bill that you or your spouse/civil union partner owe to the Vermont Department of Taxes and/or other government agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service, Office of Child Support, Department of Corrections, Vermont courts, student loan agencies, Vermont state colleges, and tax agencies of other states. This is known as an “offset.” We will notify you in writing if your refund is used as an offset to pay an outstanding debt. Am I responsible for a tax debt owed by my spouse/civil union partner? If you file a joint return with your spouse/civil union partner and believe tax debt owed by your spouse/civil union partner may reduce your portion of the refund, you may file an “injured spouse” claim. For more information, visit tax.vermont.gov/individuals/injured-spouse. To make an injured spouse claim when filing a paper return, please send the following documents before you file your return: 1. A signed letter with details of your claim 2. Copy of federal Form 8379 (if you filed one with the IRS) 3. Copies of federal Schedules C and SE (if you filed one with the IRS) 4.

What can I do? If you cannot pay your entire Vermont income tax due, file your return on time and pay as much as you can. Once the Department has issued the first notice of intent to assess for underpayment of tax you may apply for a payment plan on myVTax.vermont.gov or you can write the Department to apply for a payment plan. Mail to: ATTN: Compliance Vermont Department of Taxes PO Box 429 Montpelier, VT 05601-0429 Do not include your written request with your return. We may ask you for financial information to determine the appropriate payment plan. Without a payment plan, unpaid income tax will result in collection action which may include the imposition of liens, court action, wage garnishment, bank levies, revocation of your business and/or professional license(s), imposition of a bond on your authority to do business, and the assignment of your debt to a private collection agency. How do I claim a refund on my Vermont withholding or estimated tax payments? You must file a Vermont Income Tax Return to claim a refund of Vermont withholding or estimated tax payments. You have up to three years from the due date of the return, including extensions, to file a claim for overpayment of tax due.

About the Individual Income Tax

The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.

Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!

Historical Past-Year Versions of Vermont Income Tax Instructions

We have a total of six past-year versions of Income Tax Instructions in the TaxFormFinder archives, including for the previous tax year. Download past year versions of this tax form as PDFs here:
