Virginia Local Tax Rates

The only comprehensive view of local taxation in Virginia is prepared by the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service. It is an indispensable resource for anyone involved with local governments in Virginia, either as a taxpayer, elected official, administrator, business leader, or researcher. The Virginia Local Tax Rates book contains tax information for all 38 Virginia cities, all 95 counties, and for 134 of the state’s 192 incorporated towns and references all the tax categories permitted in the Code of Virginia, as of 2019. The book compiles taxes for real property, merchants’ capital, tangible personal property, utilities, motor vehicle licenses, business licenses, tobacco, meals, lodging, and more. 

You can purchase a hard copy of the 2019 tax rates book from the UVA Bookstore. For more recent information, you can get up-to-date local tax rates data at the Virginia Department of Taxation.
