What is Richmond’s Sales Tax Rate?

In 2022, the combined tax rate for Richmond is 6% (zip code 23219). Despite the fact the City is not located within a formal county, there is a special sales tax assessed on transactions. The universal sales tax rate in Virginia is 4.3%, within Richmond 1.0%, added onto the Special Tax Rate, for a total of 6.0% in 2022.

State of Virginia 4.3%
City of Richmond 1.0%
Special Tax Rate .7%
Total 6.0%

The location of your business or organization is used to determine the tax rate, especially for on-site sales. A different rate could apply for products that are shipped depending on facts and circumstances. As outlined above, Virginia has a 4.3% statewide tax, but there are over 270 local jurisdictions (with an average rate of 1.327%) that compound on top of the state rate. In other words, the total tax amount will vary based on location.
