Telework Tax Credit

In 2011, the Virginia General Assembly approved new tax credit legislation aimed at encouraging private sector telework in Virginia. The 2011 legislation authorized a tax credit for years 2012 and 2013. In 2012, new legislation extended the tax credit through 2016. The legislation provides for a tax credit of up to $1,200 per employee, up to $50,000 per organization, for eligible telework expenses incurred during taxable years 2012-2016.  For more information, click here.

95 Express Lanes

I 95 HOV lanes are being converted to the 95 Express Lanes.  In early 2015 the 95 Express Lanes will span from Stafford County to north of the Capital Beltway providing congestion relief and more predictable travel options in the 1-95 Corridor.  There will be new rules of the road and, if you generally commute this way, you need to learn more and start preparing for these changes.

Key rules:

  • All drivers will need an E-Z Pass to use the lanes
  • HOV-3 vehicles with an E-ZPass Flex st to HOV mode, buses and motorcycles will travel toll-free.  Everyone else will pay a toll to access the Lanes.
  • Driver traveling alone or with one passenger can pay a toll using a regular E-ZPass.
  • Tolls will be dynamic to manage congestion
  • Rules will be in effect 24 hours a day
  • 95 Express Lanes will remain reversible
