The South Atlantic state of Virginia has been called the “Mother of Presidents,” as eight U.S. presidents have been born here. The Colony of Virginia was the first permanent colony established by the British in North America.
During the Civil War, the city of Richmond served as the Confederate capital. Today, Virginia is home to some of the highest-income towns in the country. The state’s largest industries include tomatoes, soy, tobacco, oysters, technology, and defense.
Effective July 1, 2015, purchases of gold, silver or platinum bullion in amounts over $1,000 will be exempted from Virginia state sales and use taxes.
