I am a VA resident but PA employer withheld PA state tax. How to file PA tax return amend for prior years and claim refund for future?

I am a resident of VA and fill married jointly return with my wife in VA. Because I work in PA, the reciprocal agreement state of VA, but my employer withheld PA state tax from my wages. Recently, VA taxation informs me that I couldn’t claim VA tax credit for the tax paid to PA. So, VA disallows my credit and require to pay additional tax and interest. I already make payment to VA, but does anyone could help to answer two questions? Thank you!
