The tax-deferred interest is not tax-exempt

I think interest from savings bonds is subtracted from Federal AGI here in VA. So, does that mean it's tax-exempt on the state level?

Interest on US Government notes and bonds is exempt from state taxation in all states.

The general assumption on this board is that questions and answers refer to federal taxes unless otherwise specified.
