Virginia Income Tax Rate 2017 - 2018

Virginia state income tax rate table for the 2017 - 2018 filing season has four income tax brackets with VA tax rates of 2%, 3%, 5% and 5.75% for Single, Married Filing Jointly, Married Filing Separately, and Head of Household statuses. The Virginia tax rate and tax brackets are unchanged from last year. Virginia income tax rate and tax brackets shown in the table below are based on income earned between January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

Outlook for the 2018 Virginia income tax rate is to remain unchanged. Several bills were introduced and failed last year to adjust state income tax brackets and rates. SB 757 was one such bill introduced to replace all four Virginia tax brackets with a single flat income tax rate of 5.75%.
