Arkansas Property Tax Payments Due October 16

Convenient online payment options available in 57 Arkansas counties

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The statewide personal and real estate property tax payment deadline is October 16. Citizens in 57 Arkansas counties can avoid late fees and in-person payment lines by paying their property taxes online before the deadline. A directory of participating counties and secure mobile payment sites is available at ar.gov/tax.

"Excellence in our ongoing innovation via INA gives our customers what they deserve. It's important that citizens realize that their property taxes directly support their communities. Funding for our schools, libraries, jails, county government, and hospital is made possible by property taxes," Pulaski County Treasurer Debra Buckner said. "Pulaski County is proud to provide an online property tax payment service through our partnership with the Information Network of Arkansas. We introduced this payment option years ago and it has been extremely helpful in getting tax payments in on time."

To make a secure payment on a computer or mobile device, taxpayers just need to enter the parcel or tax-id numbers provided on their tax statements, or search by their name or address. The online service provides a payment confirmation and printable receipt. Payments can be made online until 11:59 p.m. October 16.

Buckner says now is a good time to pay taxes online and avoid standing in line the week of October 16. "Our office and tax collector locations around the state typically have lines in the days leading up to the deadline. No matter where you live, it's much easier to visit ar.gov/tax and pay your property taxes in just a few mouse clicks or taps on your phone."

While paying property taxes online, residents in many counties can also sign up to receive an email notification in March when their annual tax statement is available. Taxpayers who sign up for this new convenience will no longer receive annual tax statements in the mail, but will still get paper statements if their taxes are adjusted throughout the year. Buckner says going paperless is the easiest way for taxpayers to find and pay their tax bill online.

Citizens who pay their taxes online will also have the opportunity to sign up for Gov2Go, the first-of-its-kind, personal assistant for government, that tracks assessment, property tax, and vehicle registration renewal deadlines and enables citizens to quickly complete all these tasks right from their smartphones.

Pulaski County residents who choose to visit the tax collector offices can avoid the lines by using a self-service iPad kiosk to pay their property tax bill with a credit card and get an email receipt.
