Welcome to the Virginia Department of Taxation

Not your typical government agency. 

What makes us different? Just ask our people. Here’s what they say they like about working here:

  • Meaningful, challenging work – What we do matters. Our work funds the many government services Virginia’s citizens rely on in their daily lives. 

  • Open, collaborative environment – Working on teams – small or agency-wide – gives us a chance to collaborate with other employees and learn more about the agency while working toward a shared goal. 

  • The people – When you join the agency, you join the Virginia Tax family. It’s clear that your coworkers care about you and genuinely want you to succeed.

  • Opportunities for growth – Employee development programs and opportunities for promotion make our agency a great place to build a career. It’s also not uncommon to move around the agency where your skills and interests take you. 

  • Commitment to excellence – We are constantly seeking better ways to do our work. 

  • Work/life balance – In addition to the state’s 12 paid holidays and generous leave policies, most of us have the option to plan our workdays around other priorities through alternative work schedules and flexible work hours. 

  • Ability to work from home – Over half of our employees telework at least one day a week, and another one-third work from home full-time. The opportunity to telework depends on your position and the nature of your work.
