The Honorable Congress of the State of Tabasco (Spanish: Honorable Congreso del Estado de Tabasco) is the legislative branch of the government of the State of Tabasco. The Congress is the governmental deliberative body of Tabasco, which is equal to, and independent of, the executive. It is located in front of the Plaza de Armas, in the historic center of the city of Villahermosa, capital of the state.

The Congress is unicameral and consists of 35 deputies. 21 deputies are elected on a first-past-the-post basis, one for each district in which the entity is divided, while 14 are elected through a system of proportional representation. Deputies are elected to serve for a three-year term.

Since its installation the congress has been renewed 62 times, hence the previous session of the Congress of Tabasco (whose term lasted from 2018 to 2021) is known as the LXIII Legislature.
