General

Effective July 1, 2015, sales of gold, silver, and platinum bullion exceeding $1000 are exempt from sales tax in Virginia. To qualify for the exemption, each piece does not need to exceed $1000 on its own. As long as the sale is made up of pieces that exceed $1000 in total, it is exempt.

"Gold, silver, or platinum bullion" means gold, silver, or platinum, and any combination thereof, that has gone through a refining process and is in a state or condition where its value depends on its mass and purity. Gold, silver, or platinum bullion may contain other metals or substances, as long as the other substances have minimal value compared with the value of the gold, silver, or platinum. "Gold, silver, or platinum bullion" does not include jewelry or works of art.

This exemption is set to expire on December 31, 2018.
