This question comes after I found and read this article, circa 2008: Will Northern Virginia Become the 51st State? - Washingtonian

If the area still does, where can I find detailed information the amount of taxes NOVA pays, compared to the rest of the state?

Thanks.

Yes, the area still pays more, because state taxes are based on a percentage of income. This area makes a lot more, so we pay more.

At the most basic level - Yes, thanks to the "big win" transportation bill from Bob McDonnell, we get to pay extra sales tax to pay for Northern VA road projects

Don't fix the ~$0.20 on the dollar we get back from Richmond. Just tax us again and tell us we'll get to keep it in the area this time. High five your local politician for this one.

FWIW, the Hampton Roads area got the same "fix" from Richmond.

Yes, but I was thinking the OP meant taxes overall with county rates contributing to that overall total.
