FIPS Lookup

FIPS Codes (or Federal Information Processing Standards codes) are a standardized set of numeric codes to ensure uniform identification of geographic entities such as cities, counties and towns. The Virginia Department of Taxation uses FIPS codes to identify where a business is located and where their sales take place.
