Top Place for Business
Arlington and Virginia have been recognized as top places to do business for many years, and it is easy to see why. The Commonwealth of Virginia has ranked in the top 3 of CNBC's Top States for Business ranking since 2019, earning the #1 spot in 2019 and 2021.
Here in Arlington, we offer not only a stable government structure with a solid Triple-AAA bond rating for more than two decades, but also a statewide corporate income tax rate of 6% (lower than the national median of 6.8%) that has remained unchanged for 50 years. This means stability for the community and stability for your business.
Additionally, Arlington offers an abundant, talented workforce, a lower cost of living than comparable destinations and transit accessibility. The proximity to the nation's capital means unparalleled access to top decision makers, federal departments and thriving clusters representing a variety of industries, from aerospace to tech.
