Chapter 11. Bonds and Other Obligations

§ 23.1-1115. Projects; exemption from taxation.

The acquisition, erection, leasing, operation, and maintenance of any project authorized by this chapter are for the benefit of the citizens of the Commonwealth, for the increase of their pleasure, knowledge, and welfare, and for the dissemination of education among them. Each institution performs a governmental function and is an incorporated institution of learning in carrying out its purposes and exercising its powers pursuant to this chapter and, so far as may be consistent with the Constitution of Virginia, is not required to pay taxes or assessments of any kind upon any project that it (i) acquires, erects, or leases and (ii) operates and maintains. Any such project is exempt from taxation and, insofar as may be permitted under the Constitution of Virginia, the bonds of such institution are exempt from taxation except for inheritance taxes.
